A 29-year-old Ipswich woman is in custody and a 34-year-old Burpengary man is under police guard in hospital following investigations into a number of armed robberies in south-east Queensland.
Following extensive inquiries into a number of serious matters, police started to follow a vehicle at Aratula last night.
Officers intercepted the vehicle using stingers near Killarney around 9.30pm.
In the circumstances that followed, a man in the vehicle was shot by police. It will be alleged the man was armed with a firearm.
The man is in the Princess Alexandra Hospital with gunshot wounds to one arm and a leg. His injuries are believed to be non-life threatening.
The female passenger in the vehicle was taken to Warwick Hospital for precautionary treatment but was later released.
She has been charged with one count of armed robbery in relation to an incident at Kedron on July 23 and is due to appear in the Toowoomba Magistrates Court this morning.
An officer who sustained an injured wrist during the arrest last night is being treated in the Ipswich Hospital.
Investigations are continuing.
The circumstances of the shooting will be investigated separately by the QPS Ethical Standards Command.
Anyone with information which could assist police with their investigations should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously via 1800 333 000 or crimestoppers.com.au 24hrs a day.
