North Booval man charged with Gold Coast shooting

POLICE have charged a 25-year-old North Booval man with several offences after a gun was fired in a taxi at Southport early on Tuesday morning.

Queensland Police Assistant Commissioner Graham Rynders said a milk truck had also been stolen, and later crashed, and a bus driver had been assaulted inside his bus.

"It wasn't long after that, police attended the scene and a person was taken into custody," he said.

The North Booval man will appear in the Southport Magistrates Court on Thursday charged with two counts of discharging a weapon in a public place, two counts of assault or obstruct a police officer, carrying weapon in a public place while loaded, unlawful possession of weapons, going armed so as to cause fear, assaults occasioning bodily harm, serious assault of police, assault occasioning bodily harm whilst armed, unlawful use of motor vehicles, and robbery.

Assistant Commissioner Rynders said the man had allegedly acted alone and that the incident was not bikie related.
