MAN STABLE FOLLOWING BRUNSWICK HEADS SHOOTING

Police are on the hunt for a man responsible for an early morning shooting at Brunswick Heads on the state’s far north coast.

A 37-year-old man has told police he was asleep in his car in the Brunswick Heads Nature Reserve when he was woken by someone tapping on his window at around 6 o’clock on Friday morning.

He got out of the car and spoke with a man wielding a handgun.

It’s alleged the man made several threats, before firing two shots towards the car owner.

One of the shots struck the man in the forehead.

He managed to run to a nearby police station, before being taken to Byron Bay Hospital suffering non-life-threatening injuries.

Investigators wish to speak with the alleged gunman who was described as wearing dark clothes and having an Australian accent.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
