The 40-year-old managed to run out of the house and call police who rushed to the scene and cornered the armed man in the backyard.

He allegedly threatened officers and tried to jump a back fence in an attempt to flee but was tasered and taken into custody.

The 28-year-old has since been charged with one count each of attempted murder, assault occasioning bodily harm and obstruct police.

He was remanded in custody overnight and is due to appear in Caboolture Magistrates Court on Monday.

The man in his 50s was taken to Caboolture Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, while the 40-year-old was treated by paramedics at the scene.

Police said all three men were known to each other.
