Gunman on the run following Brisbane siege

A massive manhunt is underway for a gunman who sparked a police siege in Brisbane’s northside.

Police were called to a home in Kallangur at around 3.00pm on Friday following reports a man had shot a ceiling of the home and also shot himself in the hand.

Armed officers shut down nearby streets and tried to coax the man out of the home but there was no reply.



When police stormed the home they found a weapon, believed to be a shotgun, inside but nobody else was home.

It’s understood the home was significantly damaged.
