Woman SHOT at Gold Coast Medical Centre in Southport

Woman is SHOT at a busy medical centre – with the gunman now on the run


A gunman is on the loose after a woman was shot at a busy medical centre on the Gold Coast.

The 29-year-old shooting victim told police she was hit with a bullet after a man dropped a gun in the stairwell of the Southport Health Precinct at about 2:15pm on Wednesday. 

A desperate hunt is now underway to track down the man who picked up the firearm and fled – but the injured woman is refusing to reveal his identity.

Investigators are now scouring through CCTV footage to find out who the man is and where he may have went. 

A Queensland Ambulance Service spokesman said although the woman was taken to hospital she only suffered a minor arm abrasion with the wound described as ‘a graze’. 

It is understood the gun fired when it hit the ground and ricocheted around the concrete stairwell.  

Detectives descended on the scene at about 4pm searching for the bullet shell and any other evidence.

The Southport Health Precinct was put into lockdown during that time and the building’s High St entrance was taped off.    

MORE TO COME.
