Man charged with attempted murder

A MAN has been charged with attempted murder following the shooting of another man in Collinsville this morning.

Police have charged a 26-year-old man with the attempted murder of a 29-year-old Collinsville man who is being treated for critical injuries after a gunshot wound to the stomach. 

Police will allege three men arrived at a home on Bowen Developmental Road in Collinsville where a verbal altercation occurred with a resident of that address.

They will further allege the resident retrieved a firearm from the property before one of the men was shot in the stomach. 

The injured man was helped into a vehicle by his companions and taken to Collinsville Hospital, a police spokesman said.

The man was later airlifted to Townsville Hospital where he remains in a critical but stable condition.

Police have also charged the 26-year-old with acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm, receiving tainted property, unlawful possession of a weapon used to commit an indictable offence, possession of dangerous drugs (cannabis) and possession of drug utensils.

He is due to appear at Proserpine Magistrates Court on Monday, June 1.
