Three individuals have been confirmed dead following a shooting in rural North Queensland, and the gunman responsible for the incident is still at large.
A property on Shannonvale Road in the little village of Bogie, which is located around 100 kilometres away from the incident, was where the remains of the three victims were found.
The conflict was reportedly related to a disagreement about property, as reported by The Courier-Mail.
On Thursday morning at 8:54 local time, emergency personnel were called to a residence in the outback mining community of Bogie, which is located close to Collinsville.
Officers are still present at the scene, and they have requested that members of the public refrain from going there until the situation has been brought under control.
Under the provisions of the Public Safety Preservation Act, boundaries that include Sutherland Road, Normanby Road, Mount Compton Road, and Starvation Creek were drawn around 11.30 in the morning.
“One male has been located some distance from the property and is currently being treated for a gunshot wound,” Queensland Police said.
“Police are currently conducting emergency operations in the area and requesting members of the public and aircraft to not attend the location.”
According to Queensland Ambulance Services, a male patient aged 30 who suffered a significant injury from a gunshot wound to his abdomen was airlifted to Mackay Hospital. The patient was in a critical condition.
