Police have charged a teenage boy following an incident at Nambour on Monday where a firearm was allegedly discharged into a residence.

It will be alleged a 16-year-old boy attended a Webster Road address on August 5 just before 2pm, produced a knife and threatened the occupants of the home.

The boy then allegedly made demands for the keys to a vehicle. He left a short time later, allegedly claiming he would come back with a firearm if the occupants did not comply.

It is further alleged the same boy came back to the home around 5.30pm armed with a knife and made further threats while attempting to force his way into the home. He left after being bitten by a dog at the residence.

At approximately 11pm that night police attended the address following reports a single shot had been fired into the house.

When officers arrived, they found a small calibre projectile had penetrated the front wall of the house into the loungeroom, then through another wall into the bathroom where it had shattered the shower screen.

The occupants, a 27-year-old woman and 25-year-old man, were inside at the time but were not hurt.
