Update – Shooting incident at Burnett Heads, QLD

Detectives have charged a further four men following their investigations into an armed robbery incident at Burnett Heads earlier this month, Queensland Police say.

Around 5.15pm, on Monday April 9, three males confronted two men on Strathdees Road.

It will be alleged a physical altercation has ensued, resulting in the discharge of a firearm.

Both men sustained non-life threatening injuries.

Initial investigations around reports the men were fishing on Wharf Drive were found to be incorrect.

As a result of further investigations into this matter detectives yesterday executed a search warrant on an Avoca property where a .22 lever rifle alleged to have been used in the incident was located.

A 26-year-old Bundaberg man has been charged as a result of the search and is expected to appear in the Bundaberg Magistrates Court on May 11.
