A family-of-four was allegedly shot, three fatally, with the survivor able to flee the scene.

He is believed to be a man in his 30s.

He was initially in a critical condition but has undergone multiple emergency surgeries and is now reported as being serious but stable.

“He was able to speak to us overnight and provide us details of what happened at the incident yesterday morning,” Armitt said.

“And detectives will be speaking to him again this morning.”

Police are yet to confirm a motive for the alleged shooting.

Two men and a woman died at the scene, while the surviving man stumbled into remote bushland with a wound to his stomach.

He was airlifted to Mackay Base Hospital.

An emergency declaration was made to include Shannonvale Road, where the shooting took place, before it was revoked on Friday morning.
