Police probe Agnes Water bushwalker shooting mystery

POLICE have confirmed an Agnes Water man, 40, was shot in the stomach on Monday night but mystery still surrounds the circumstances.

The man had been bushwalking when he was shot.

The injury was non-life threatening, but the incident is being treated as suspicious.

The man was airlifted to Bundaberg Hospital by the AGL Action Rescue Helicopter where he was in a stable condition, and was discharged yesterday morning.

Yvonne Thompson, of Bills Rd, Agnes Water said her neighbour called the ambulance for the wounded man.

"We didn't hear any gunshots but I did hear a commotion about 4pm," Mrs Thompson said.

"The lady across the road said she saw the ambulance arrive after 6pm."

Mrs Thompson speculated the incident may have been a pig shooting accident.

"People do a bit of pig shooting out there, but we never heard a gunshot," she said.

"I'm just hoping there's nobody running around with a gun."

The resident was concerned of another incident occurring.

Police investigations continue.
