Security Guard shot in Brisbane

A Security Guard shot while on duty in Brisbane early on Friday, is expected to make a full recovery.

The man was hit in the leg while performing a static patrol of a business on South Pine Road at Everton Park just after 1:00am.

It’s then alleged that a man walked up to him, threatened him with a gun and demanded the keys to his car.


The security officer refused and was shot in the right ankle before the shooter ran off.

Police arrested a man in his twenties a short time later and he is being questioned.

The security guard is in the Royal Brisbane Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Investigations are continuing.
