Man charged with attempted murder, weapons offences

POLICE have charged a man with attempted murder and weapons offences after he was allegedly connected to an incident involving a firearm last month. 

At around 11pm on March 21, a 23-year-old man received serious facial injuries during the incident and was taken to Caboolture Hospital.

A public appeal led police to the man at 10.15am today in Gympie where he was then arrested.

He has been charged with one count each of attempted murder, discharge weapon in a public place, dangerous conduct with a weapon, enter dwelling with intent and unlawful possession of a category A/B/M weapon.

He is scheduled to appear before the Gympie Magistrates Court tomorrow.
