Search for Qld man after footpath shooting


A manhunt is under way in Queensland after an alleged daylight shooting on a footpath in a small town southwest of Brisbane.

Early investigations suggest the victim was standing on the footpath in Warwick last Tuesday morning when a small silver car pulled up and the alleged offender fired a single shot.

Police believe 26-year-old Jackson Watson can assist with their investigation, and warn he may be armed. 

“Police consider him to be dangerous and the public should not approach him if sighted but contact Triple Zero immediately,” a statement on Tuesday said.

Mr Watson is Caucasian, about 170cm tall with a proportionate build, brown hair and brown eyes.

He is known to frequent Brisbane, Gold Coast, Toowoomba, Warwick and Texas.

The injured 37-year-old was driven by family members to hospital, where he required treatment for an abdominal wound.
