A 30-year-old man who al­legedly shot his 69-year-old fa­ther in an in­ci­dent at Woodgate has ap­peared in the Bund­aberg Mag­is­trates Court.

Lee Dennis Avery made no ap­pli­ca­tion for bail af­ter be­ing charged with griev­ous bod­ily harm fol­low­ing Fri­day’s al­leged in­ci­dent.

Avery was re­manded in cus­tody to ap­pear again on Oc­to­ber 1.

The 69-year-old man was flown to a Bris­bane hos­pi­tal late on Fri­day in a se­ri­ous con­di­tion.

A crime scene had been es­tab­lished at a Jar­retts Rd ad­dress.

Bund­aberg Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tion Branch De­tec­tive Act­ing Se­nior Sergeant Glenn Cameron said po­lice re­sponded af­ter the 69-year-old man ar­rived at the Bund­aberg Hos­pi­tal emer­gency room.

“At ap­prox­i­mately 3am Satur­day morn­ing a 69-year-old man has pre­sented at the Bund­aberg Hos­pi­tal with gun­shot wounds,” he said.

The man drove him­self to the hos­pi­tal and stum­bled into the emer­gency room where it is be­lieved he then col­lapsed.

“On route to Woodgate to in­ves­ti­gate, po­lice have fur­ther lo­cated a 30-year-old male who has in­juries to his hands,” Det Snr Sgt Cameron said.

The 30-year-old was then taken to hos­pi­tal by am­bu­lance. The man had a young child with him when he was found by po­lice.

Jar­retts Rd res­i­dent Glen Gotz said there were only a hand­ful of houses in the street but he didn’t hear any­thing to in­di­cate what had hap­pened.

“It’s a very quiet area. It’s a very nice area,” he said.

“I’ve never known there to be any­thing of this sort of na­ture be­fore.”
