Man shot in Queanbeyan

Investigations are underway after a man was shot, and two other men were threatened with a knife outside a KFC store in Queanbeyan today.

Police say that just after 6am, a man armed with a knife, approached a Kia Cerato car parked at the KFC on Waniassa Road, Queanbeyan East, and threatened two men inside – aged 32 and 60.

“Soon after, he exited the vehicle and fled the scene with a man and woman in a blue Ford Focus with NSW registration CZ72NM,” NSW Police said in a statement.

“Shortly after 7am, police were notified after a 39-year-old man from Pambula presented to Queanbeyan Hospital with a gunshot wound to his lower torso.

“He was transferred to Canberra Hospital, where he remains in a serious condition.”

Detectives have since established Strike Force Fihelly to investigate the incidents and determine whether they are linked.

Anyone with information that may assist with the investigation is urged to call Queanbeyan Police on 6298 0599.
