POLICE have found the car they believe to be involved in last week's drive-by shooting and say bullet holes found in the vehicle indicate that shots were returned.

The Silver Holden Astra sedan was found abandoned at Dundowran on Sunday morning with two bullet holes in the side.

Detective Sergeant Mick Polit said police have been in contact with a 41-year-old man believed to be the victim of the drive-by shooting but that the man has refused to cooperate with investigations.

The discovery of the car comes after police released a description of a silver hatchback on Friday which was reported as stolen from the Hervey Bay Boat Club on Wednesday, the same night of the shooting.

The car was then seen in Arlington Crt, Kawungan, where the shooting took place, within two hours of the incident that saw between nine and 10 shots fired from a semi-automatic weapon causing damage to two houses and several cars in the street.

Det Sgt Polit said police were still searching for a large, bald man believed to be involved in the shooting as well as another person who they believed was the driver of the vehicle.

Last week the Chronicle reported that after the shooting, a 28-year-old Kawungan woman was pulled over in a nearby street and charged with one count each of unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a knife in a public place.

While the woman was charged with weapons offences, police are still unsure if she has any connection to the shooting incident on the suburban street.

Witnesses reported the shots were fired about 8.30pm on Wednesday at Arlington Crt, Kawungan, before a person was seen getting into a small white or silver hatchback and driving away.

Why would you choose a sleep in over waking up early?

I think one of the advantages of getting up early is listening to the birds and watching the sunrise over a brand new day.

I think the best time of the day is first thing in the morning.
