Police probe bushland 'shooting' on Sunshine Coast
SUNSHINE Coast police are probing reports a man was shot in the knee with a handgun in the Noosa area late on Sunday afternoon.
A Queensland Police Service spokeswoman said the man had driven to Cooloothin to walk his dog when he heard what he thought was a shot.
"He realised he had a small wound to his left knee," the spokeswoman said.
"His wife picked up him and took him to hospital. He wasn't in too much pain.
"It's being investigated as a possible shooting."
Detectives said there was no reason to believe that the public was at risk with the suspected shooting described as a random event.
