Preliminary investigations suggest that just before 1am, three men arrived at the car park of a shopping centre in a car on West and Charnley streets.

A short time later, a man driving a four wheel drive (4WD) pulled up next to the trio’s car.

After a physical altercation, a firearm was discharged into the vehicle causing damage to a rear window.

The 25-year-old male driver of the car sustained a minor injury to his right hand but did not need to be treated at a hospital.

The three men left the shopping centre in their car and were followed by the man in the 4WD.

The 4WD was last seen at the intersection of James and Ruthven streets heading east.

The trio reported the incident to Toowoomba police shortly after.

The man may be travelling in a silver/grey 2011 Landrover Discovery four wheel drive.

Police do not believe this to be a random incident and there is no ongoing danger to the community.

Investigations are continuing.
