Police hunting car involved in alleged Logan drive-by shooting

Detectives investigating an alleged drive-by shooting at Logan last week, which left a 17-year-old boy with wounds to the back of his head, are appealing for help to find a vehicle.

It’s believed the car, a silver Holden Commodore SS ute, was involved in the incident but is yet to be located.

Police say the ute is fitted with the Queensland registration GEEES, and are appealing for anyone who may have seen it to come forward.

It comes after officers today charged a 23-year-old man following the alleged serious assault, which occurred on Wednesday January 20.

“Between 6 and 7pm at Logan reserve, a group became involved in a physical altercation which resulted in a 17-year-old boy receiving wounds to the back of his head,” Queensland Police said in a statement at the time.

“Officers are investigating whether the boy may have been struck by fragments from a shotgun, fired from a passing vehicle.”

The teen was taken to Logan Hospital, where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

The 23-year-old man faced Beenleigh Magistrates Court today charged with acts intended to maim, discharge of a weapon in a public place, possessing dangerous drugs and explosives, possessing property suspected to be involved in a drug offence and possession of drug utensils.

He was remanded in custody to next appear in court on March 3.

As well as appealing for help to locate the Commodore, detectives are also continuing their appeal for witnesses and footage taken in the vicinity of Logan Reserve on the evening of January 20.
