Police release mug shots of Lowmead shooting suspects
POLICE may not be able to give names, but they can certainly show the faces.
Yesterday the Gladstone CIB branch released images of a man and woman (pictured) they believe could help police with their investigations into a shooting near Miriam Vale on Monday night.
It was believed the suspects involved in the Lowmead shooting had links to Rockhampton, Gladstone CIB's head, Detective Senior Sergeant Luke Peachey, said yesterday. However, he confirmed it was believed the pair were not in the region but had fled to the south-east corner of the state.
A man and woman allegedly shot an elderly Lowmead man, 82, at his Bruce Hwy house before they fled in a white Nissan Patrol. Police said they had no ties to the victim and their sole motive was to steal a vehicle.
The getaway 1999 Nissan truck was found in East Deep Creek Rd at Gympie on Tuesday, noticeably without its number plates, 922-FTB.
The man police sought was Aboriginal in appearance, aged 20-30, skinny, with scruffy, shoulder length hair. He wore black pants and a red shirt.
The woman was described as Aboriginal, aged in her 20s, with curly black hair.
She was wearing black pants and a white jacket.
The elderly victim had surgery on his right leg on Monday night and was in a stable condition.
