Three women in court after man shot with air rifle

THREE Ipswich women have been charged with assault after a 44-year-old Goodna man was shot in the shoulder with an air rifle on Tuesday night.

A 16-year-old Ipswich youth will also be dealt with under the Youth Justice Act for his role in the incident, which the QT understands to be all over a missing iPad and e-passport.

A 44-year-old Goodna woman also received head injuries in the incident which occurred at 5.30pm at a house in Redbank Plains Rd, Goodna.

A 19-year-old man and a 14-year-old boy at the address were not injured.

The Goodna man was taken to Princess Alexandria Hospital where the pellet was removed. He did not sustain life threatening injuries.

Bundamba's Amy Elizabeth Hackett, 41, and Leichhardt's Emma Jane Ryan, 30, both appeared in Ipswich Magistrates Court yesterday and will be remain in custody until their next court appearance on January 5. Bundamba's Tracy Margaret Gough, 39, was released on bail and will appear in court again on January 28.

All have been charged with entering premises to commit an indictable offence and acts intending to maim, disfigure or disable along with two counts each of common assault and causing wilful damage.

They have also been charged with a fire arm shortening offence, going armed so as to cause fear and possession of a knife in a public place.

It will be alleged the offenders entered the Goodna premises with an assortment of weapons including a knife, tomahawk and the gun.

The gun has been sent to forensics for finger printing,

The QT understands that the Goodna showdown followed on from an incident the previous Sunday when the daughter of one the offenders stayed at the victim's house.

It is believed the female had an iPad and e-passport with her that went missing between her night's stay and when she arrived home.

There was a heated verbal argument in relation to the missing items.

That then escalated on Tuesday night.
