A man and a woman were left in critical condition and taken to the hospital after being shot several times by a man standing on his porch.
Emergency services were called to a home on Goman Street, Sunnybank Hills, Queensland around 7:20 am on Saturday after a 46-year-old had been shot multiple times and a 25-year-old woman had been shot twice in the leg.
A 24-year-old was arrested and the police found casings of a 22-caliber rifle but could not find the weapon themselves.

The couple walked their dog before being hit with bullets and forced them to take cover at a nearby bus stop after the shooter continued shooting.
The police believe that the alleged victims and their attacker know each other, but do not know what caused the attack.
& # 39; This is not a random attack on a stranger walking the streets, these people are known to each other, so the cause of it will be identified in due course & # 39 ;, said inspector Geoff Acreman, as reported by the ABC.
& # 39; The reports are that he produced a firearm and started shooting at the people on the road, & # 39; he said.
The 46-year-old had an emergency operation at Princess Alexandria Hospital and is in a stable but serious condition in intensive care.
The woman was also taken to the hospital, but remains stable.

Inspector Acreman said the man started shooting at the couple while they were standing on the road before chasing them to a bus stop.
& # 39; It has been reported that the suspect subsequently skipped the neighboring fence and shot the people on the sidewalk & # 39 ;, Inspector Acreman said.
The shooter fled in a black BMW that was traced by the police to a house in Doolandella, 12 km from the crime scene.
A police officer also suffered injuries after the couple's dog bit him, causing blood to flow from his arm before being brought to Mater Hospital in a stable condition.
