A crime scene had been established at a Jarretts Rd address and yesterday a 69-year-old man remained in a critical but stable condition.
Bundaberg Criminal Investigation Branch Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Glenn Cameron said police responded after the 69-year-old man arrived at the Bundaberg Hospital emergency room in the early hours of yesterday morning.
"Police are investigating a shooting incident that occurred at Woodgate," he said.
"At approximately 3am a 69-year-old man has presented at the Bundaberg Hospital with gun shot wounds."
The man was not brought in by Ambulance.
"On route to Woodgate to investigate, police have further located a 30-year-old male who has injuries to his hands," Det Snr Sgt Camerson said.
The 30-year-old was then taken to hospital by Ambulance. There are reports there was a young child in the car when it was stopped by police.
"Both these males are currently in the Bundaberg Base Hospital receiving treatment and it is a police ongoing investigation," he said.
No charges have been laid at this stage.
"Both males are in hospital under police guard and they're receiving treatment for their injuries, but it is still ongoing," Det Snr Sgt said.
"It's still too early in the investigation to determine who else is involved."
Jarretts Rd resident Glen Gotz said there were only a handful of houses in the street but he didn't hear anything to indicate what had happened. "It's a very quiet area, it a very nice area," he said.
"I've never known there to be anything of this sort of nature before."
Mr Gotz said he was aware who lived at the address but didn't have much to do with them.
"We only spoke a couple of times, but you never know what goes on behind the scene," he said.
Det Snr Sgt said police were still trying to piece together what had occurred at the Woodgate address.
"It's too early to determine the exact cause," he said.
Det Snr Sgt Cameron said police were processing the crime scene at the property but would not reveal if any weapons had been located.
"The police haven't fully processed the scene at the moment," he said.
"At this stage were not exactly sure what caused the injuries." A Bundaberg Hospital spokesperson confirmed two people had received treatment yesterday.
