Police said the 23-year-old was shot at home on Handford Rd, Zillmere, just after 11pm on Sunday.

Paramedics said she suffered wounds to her arm and abdomen and was taken to hospital in a serious but stable condition. It is understood that up to three people may have entered the woman’s home, armed with a shotgun.

Detectives established a crime scene at the home and investigators are urging anyone with information or footage to contact them.

The Courier-Mail reported that several windows were broken before at least one gun was fired.

Queensland Police Inspector Geoff Acreman said it’s believed the three men were known to those living at the house.

“It doesn’t appear this is random, it appears the offenders know the occupants of the house,” Insp Acreman said.

“Words were spoken between the course of this event and then the offenders were seen to go a gold-coloured vehicle and leave the area.”
