Morayfield shooting: Teenage boy grilled by police after Brisbane woman is shot dead

Police are interviewing an 18-year-old found in the unit where a women, 29, was shot and killed overnight as detectives rule out domestic violence.

Emergency services were called to a unit on Grant Road in Morayfield, north Brisbane, shortly after midnight on Sunday after a neighbour in the same complex heard a gunshot.

A 29-year-old woman was found with a gunshot wound in the downstairs of the unit and died at the scene.

Detective Inspector David Harbison said on Sunday a teenager was also located inside the unit complex by first responders.

‘It appears the victim and the male are known to each other,’ he said.

‘It’s not considered, at this stage, to be a domestic violence incident.’

Detective Inspector David Harbison said the pair knew each other but did not live in the unit (pictured, a car on the property)

He said police were investigating why the pair was at the address, why there was a firearm on the property, and how it was discharged.

‘The victim certainly didn’t live at that address and our investigators are trying to uncover why these persons were at this address,’ Insp Harbison said.

‘There was no one else at this address at the time and we haven’t heard of any disturbances that occurred there prior to the gunshot.’

Queensland Police are still completing a forensic sweep of the unit with Insp Harbison adding detectives weren’t likely to attend until later Sunday or Monday.

The firearm has not been found. 

When questioned why officers were seen searching through bins at a childcare centre across the street from the unit, Insp Harbison said it was standard practice. 

‘We’re looking for evidence, including firearms,’ he said.
