EARLIER: Clayfield and Kallangur shootings may be linked
POLICE have arrested a man over the shooting at Clayfield on Tuesday after intercepting a car at Stafford Heights allegedly displaying false number plates.
Police said they intercepted the vehicle on Kingaroy Street, Stafford Heights around 9pm.
Police ascertained that it was owned by a family member of the victim from the Clayfield shooting.
Officers spoke to the driver of the car, a 28-year-old Arana Hills man, and police will allege that during a search of the vehicle they located a sawn off shotgun, knives and drugs.
The man was arrested and transported to the Brisbane City Watchhouse in respect of drug, weapons and driving offences.
Investigations will be conducted today by detectives in relation to the firearm located in the vehicle, which is believed to be the same type of weapon used in the Clayfield shooting incident.
Investigations will include any possible link between this shooting and the shooting incident earlier yesterday at Kallangur in which a similar firearm was believed to have been used.
In that incident, police were called to a Marsden Road address around 5am yesterday following reports of a man having been shot.
A 29-year-old Kallangur man was transported to the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries to his legs and buttocks.
The second incident occurred at 12.45pm when two men became involved in an altercation in a carpark at Bonnie Avenue, Clayfield.
During the altercation a firearm was discharged and a 30-year-old Bowen Hills man presented at the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital for treatment of gunshot wounds. The injuries are not believed to be life threatening.
