A man has died and a woman is being interviewed by police following a shooting near a school on the Gold Coast shortly after 2pm on Monday.
Police closed a street in Labrador, Queensland, after they were called to a house on Imperial Parade following reports a shot was fired.
A 43-year-old man was found in the house with a single bullet wound to the chest. Paramedics worked to revive the man but he died of his injuries about an hour later, according to the ABC.
