One local described the victim as "lovely" and said she was shocked to hear he had been shot.

Some residents of unit blocks on the street said they did not hear the shooting happen during the night and were unaware of the drama on their street until the police spoke to people in the morning.

The man suffered minor injuries to the torso from the shooting.

He was hospitalised after he was shot in the stomach in one of Brisbane's ritziest suburbs on Monday night.

Police are investigating after two men arrived at an address on Alma Rd, Clayfield around 7.50pm.
