Man charged with shooting neighbour in leg during dispute

A MAN is due to appear in court today after he allegedly shot his neighbour in the leg during a heated dispute in South East Queensland.

The frightening scenes unfolded at a home in Rosewood, Ipswich around 1.30pm on Sunday.

“Officers were called to an Albert Street property after a 43-year-old Brassall man had allegedly been shot by another man following a verbal altercation,” Qld police confirmed in a statement.


The man was treated at the scene before being rushed to hospital with a non-life-threatening leg injury.

A 31-year-old local man was taken into custody at a neighbouring property a short time later.

During a search of his home, police allegedly found heroin, methylamphetamine cash and a rifle.

He was charged with acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm, dangerous conduct with a weapon, unlawful possession of a category H weapon, unlawful possession of explosives (ammunition), possession of property suspected of being the proceeds of crime (cash) and two counts of possession of dangerous drugs.

The man has been denied police bail and is due to appear in the Ipswich Magistrates Court today.
