Woman Charged With Murder Over Shooting Death of Boyfriend on the Gold Coast

A 39-year-old woman has been charged with the shooting murder of her partner at a Gold Coast home.

A 46-year-old man was shot sometime around 2am on Wednesday at the home in Waverley Street, Southport and died at the scene despite receiving treatment from paramedics.

Detective Acting Inspector Matt Ward said the woman, who lives at the home, called triple zero to report the shooting.

She was taken into custody and charged with murder and possession of a category H weapon on Wednesday evening.

Det Act Insp Ward said a weapon had been located inside the house but couldn’t confirm if it was the gun used in the shooting.

Police also interviewed two other people who were in the home at the time of the shooting while a child and two other adults were in a caravan on the property. The man, who did not live at the property, is believed to have arrived at some point during the night.

“Suffice to say he hadn’t been there for a substantial period of time,” Det Act Insp Ward said.

He said while there was no history of domestic violence involving the couple, it was an avenue police were investigating.
