Sippy Downs workman shot at while on the job

DETECTIVES are investigating after two projectiles were fired at a Sippy Downs workman sitting in a vehicle at a roadworks site on the Bruce Highway at Burpengary last night.

Around 9.35pm the 45-year-old man was sitting in a parked vehicle southbound, just after the Uhlmann Road exit, when a white sedan pulled up beside him.

The front seat passenger, a male wearing a balaclava, pointed a handgun at the man and fired two rounds before the vehicle sped off.

The man managed to duck for cover and the projectiles travelled through the open front windows of the car, passing out of the vehicle and into bushland.

Police will re-attend the scene today in an attempt to locate the projectiles. At this stage it is unknown whether they were bullets or caps fired from a cap gun.

The man was uninjured and his vehicle was not damaged

Anyone with information which could assist with this matter should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously via 1800 333 000 or crimestoppers.com.au 24hrs a day.
