A 15-year-old girl has been shot by a man brandishing a compound bow and arrow at a supermarket in Ipswich, west of Brisbane, police say.
Inspector Heath McQueen said a 25-year-old man was at Booval train station wearing a black hoodie and mask, armed with the compound bow.
« We are still yet to establish who that female jogger may have been, she may not be aware that a weapon was fired in her direction, » Inspector McQueen said.
Inspector McQueen said the man fired again at a car on the corner of Railway Street and South Station Road in Booval.
He said the man then continued to the Aldi supermarket in Booval, firing another two arrows — one at the entrance and one towards the back of the store, which injured the teenager.
The girl has been taken to Queensland Children’s Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries to her hand and abdomen.
« Some bystanders then bravely accosted that male person and detained him until police arrived, » Inspector McQueen said.
« At this point in time, preliminary investigations haven’t identified that it’s a targeted attack, » Inspector McQueen said.
Police were called to the supermarket at about 4:30pm and arrested the man a short time later.
