A man has been charged with trying to kill a police officer, who opened fire as a vehicle was reversed towards him in Brisbane.
A man who allegedly tried to run over a Brisbane police officer has been charged with attempted murder.
The officer repeatedly fired at the four-wheel drive the man allegedly reversed at him at Holland Park about 2.20am (AEST) on Monday.
Earlier officers had tried to stop the vehicle but it crashed into parked cars on Seville Rd.
The man then allegedly reversed the car towards the officer, who began firing his gun. The alleged offender wasn’t hit, and he fled, sparking a manhunt.
Police on Tuesday said they’d arrested a 31-year-old Ipswich man.
He’s been charged with attempted murder, acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, two counts of wilful damage and one count of evading police.
He’s also facing unrelated charges including robbery, stealing, and driving offences.
He is due to face the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
