‘F--- off you c---’: Masked gunmen still on run in Gympie
GYMPIE CIB confirmed today no arrests have been made and the hunt continues for the person responsible for a gunshot being fired near a block of Gympie units in the early hours of yesterday morning.
A property owner in Phoenix Lane received a laceration to the head in an altercation with a group of men just after 2am on Wednesday.
Three police cars and an ambulance rushed to the scene where a man was treated, but the alleged gunmen had escaped in a car moments before.
Neighbours reportedly heard a gunshot believed to be of a sawn-off shotgun, screaming and yelling before one of the men reportedly yelled "give us your black box."
"We heard f--- off you c---- and a few seconds later "you f----- b-------," a neighbour said.
The gunmen were reportedly masked.
A neighbour who wished to remain anonymous said it was quite frightening to see the drama unfold on his street.
"It used to be a quiet neighbourhood," another said.
No one has been arrested," a Gympie CIB officer said.
