Armed man on the run after terrifying drive-by shooting

AN ARMED man is on the run and passengers of a car lucky to escape without injury after a terrifying drive-by shooting last night.

Around 11.45pm, a man fired a bullet through the back of a car while he was driving along David Low Way, Marcoola.

Detectives say the victim car was approaching the Airport Dr intersection when a light grey Holden Commodore drove up alongside it and pointed a gun through the driver's side window.

The car accelerated away but not before a single shot was fired from the Holden Commodore into the rear of the car.

The Holden Commodore sped off along David Low Way towards the roundabout at Pacific Paradise.
