Two men on the run after Gold Coast shooting

POLICE are hunting two men following a shooting at the Mantra Crown Towers in Surfers Paradise.

Detective Inspector Brian Swan has told media two suspects knocked on the door of a sixth floor apartment.

A scuffle followed between the victim and the would-be intruders and a shot was fired.

The victim from Brisbane's south was rushed to Gold Coast University Hospital.

The age of the victim remains unclear. He is believed to be between 20 and 30 years old.

Inspector Swan said the two others in the apartment are now working with police.

"They were upset at what had occurred and immediately went to attend to their roommate," Inspector Swan said.
 

Police are not yet clear on the reason for the attack.

"At this stage we are not exactly sure, we are trying to get that information from our witnesses," he said.

The two men are described as Caucasian, between 25 and 30 years old.

One had a mohawk haircut or crew cut, wore jeans and a light t-shirt with a black backpack.

The other wore a dark-coloured top and cargo pants.
