Four people were shot in a small Australian town before the gunman fled the scene and led the police on a manhunt.
The shocking mass shooting takes place in the small town of Bogie near Collinsville, North Queensland, where an unnamed gunman opened fire and injured at least four people believed to be locals.
Following the shooting at 9 am on Thursday, the police and a rescue helicopter were dispatched to the town that has just over 160 residents according to the latest census.
“Police are currently responding to reports of a shooting of multiple people on a rural property near Collinsville,” Queensland police confirmed.
“One male has been located some distance from the property and is currently being treated for a gunshot wound.
“Police are currently conducting emergency operations in the area and are requesting members of the public and aircraft to not attend the location.”
As of this writing, the suspect remains at large and the motive for the shooting remains unclear.
Following the shooting, one shocked resident who works near the agricultural town told Daily Mail Australia about how she saw police cars rushing to the crime scene.
“I saw at least three police cars while I was outside and heard a few more sirens after that,” she said.
“It’s not usually what you see. I thought straight away that something bad had happened.”
