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.”
