Bribie Island shooting: Two men charged after one accused hid in holiday home and was found be teen

A man wanted over the shooting of a woman on an idyllic island was dramatically arrested after a teenage girl found him hiding in her holiday home.

The 27-year-old woman was seriously injured after being shot in the back on Bribie Island, before two men allegedly dumped her at the home of a family member on Thursday morning.

Footage shows the moment Queensland Police found one of the two accused hiding inside the garage of a family holiday home about 3.45pm on Thursday.

A teenage girl who was staying at the property with friends stumbled across him and called the police, 7News reported.

The man was dragged away from the home and into the back of a police car in handcuffs.








Once back at the station, the 27-year-old suspect was charged with two counts of burglary and one count each of receiving tainted property, possessing a weapon and unlawfully using a motor vehicle.

He will appear in the Redcliffe Magistrates Court on Friday. 

A spokeswoman for Queensland Police confirmed that his co-accused, another 27-year-old man, turned himself in at Cleveland Police Station overnight.

He was charged with grievous bodily harm, dangerous conduct with a weapon and unlawful possession of a weapon. 

He will appear before the Cleveland Magistrates Court on Friday.

Authorities on the sleepy island were forced to issue an emergency declaration after the two accused went on the run after the shooting.

They revoked the order at 2.05pm on Thursday.

Detectives have indicated they believe the shooting may have been an accident, 7News reported.

Police Inspector Bob Hytch previously urged both men to hand themselves in ‘before anyone else gets hurt… to build the story of what took place’. 

‘We believe it’s quite probable that the incident may have been an accident,’ he said.

The victim underwent surgery on Thursday and is expected to survive her injuries.

Mr Hytch said he understands the woman and two men were known to each other.
