A man has been charged with a string of offences after another man was allegedly shot in the leg and a third seriously injured in Brisbane’s north.

The 26-year-old has been remanded in custody and will reappear in a Brisbane court on March 7 on nine charges including two counts of acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm following the incident earlier this month.
