A man has been shot dead in front of his teenage daughter and another man is fighting for life after their Queensland home was invaded early this morning.
Emergency services rushed to the Gleneagle home, in Queensland’s Scenic Rim around an hour west of the Gold Coast, to reports a man had been shot.
Paramedics found the 48-year-old dad in a critical condition with a gunshot wound to his leg.
Despite their best efforts, he died just after 7am this morning.
Another man, aged 40, was rushed to hospital with minor injuries after the group allegedly hit him in the head with a hammer.
7 Newsreports both men were attacked while a 13-year-old girl was inside the home.
