A man has been shot dead and several others have been injured after a wild brawl involving multiple weapons broke out west of Brisbane.
Queensland Police say the altercation, involving more than a dozen men, began around 5pm in Baden Jones Way in North Booval.
Four people were rushed to various hospitals, before a 31-year-old died from his critical injuries after arriving at Ipswich Hospital.
It’s believed he suffered multiple gunshot wounds, while another man taken to the same hospital in a serious but stable condition was injured by a baseball bat.
Two other men were taken to the Princess Alexandra Hospital with injuries sustained by bats and cars respectively.
Some of the men involved fled the scene.
As of Wednesday morning, no charges have been laid, but police have declared a crime scene and investigations are continuing.
Investigators urge anyone with information regarding the incident to contact police.
