Man, 23, shot in the head in drive-by shooting outside Sushi restaurant at Eight Mile Plainsl

23-year old man is fighting for his life in a critical condition after being shot in the head in a drive-by shooting outside a Sushi restaurant in a busy shopping centre at Eight Miles Plains. It's the second shooting in suburban Brisbane in less than 24 hours after a 56-year-old father of two was slain in his loungroom in Rochedale overnight. The man, 23, is now fighting for his life after the young waiter called Triple 0 at 7:15pm. Paramedics rushed him to the Princess Alexandra Hospital. Pictures from the scene of the Eight Mile Plans shopping centre shooting Ambulance officers say they transported the man at 9pm and he was taken to hospital in a critical condition. Warrigal Square Shopping Centre Drive-By Shooting at Eight Mile Plains A 24-year-old worker rushed to the aid of the shot man. "Someone I knew came running into my store because he knew I was a trainee nurse. I ran up with a first-aid kit and saw a man's body lying on the ground face down," he told The Courier-Mail late tonight. "Someone handed me a phone where emergency service people gave me instructions. "I put the man on his side and they told me to try and stop the bleeding but I couldn't see where he was bleeding from. He had long black hair which was caught up in all the blood over his face. He was breathing but not responsive. "He looked like a young fit healthy guy." There was chaos at the Warrigal Square Shopping Centre as up to 200 late night shoppers were forbidden by police from returning to their vehicles in the carpark.

He says a silver two-door BMW drove up and shot the young Asian man who had been eating at the sushi restaurant," said the owner of Little Nyonya Singapore Restaurant. "He saw the silver BMW drive up and shoot him and drive away. There was blood all over his face. Then he called Triple 0 and he hung up and they called him back two minutes later and they asked him to check on the guy. "He heard the one single gunshot and saw the blood on his face. There was a huge pool of blood on the ground. There was also a trolley boy standing by." Hairdresser Takuro Nishikawa, who works at Glams Hair Lounge, was working tonight less than 100 metres from where the 23-year-old man was shot. "I was in the salon and didn't hear anything over the music. But I turned around when I saw flashing lights and people were crowding around," said the 27-year-old who had worked at the Eight Mile Plains salon for a year. "I am totally shocked and now I just want to get into my car I cannot." Police were at the scene of the incident where a crime scene had been quickly declared at the location and a major incident room has been established at Mount Gravatt Police Station. Police Detective Superintendent Mick Niland said: “It’s in the very early stages of the investigation. We are searching for offenders and we are seeking the assistance of the public. We are speaking with witnesses in relation to this matter. “The shot man has come to the shopping centre to have dinner with friends. The friends are speaking with police."
