Investigations are underway after a man was shot, and two other men were threatened with a knife in the Monaro region earlier today.

About 6.15am (Thursday 3 June 2021), police have been told an unknown man, armed with a knife, entered a Kia Cerato parked at a fast food restaurant on Waniassa Road, Queanbeyan East, and threatened two men – aged 32 and 60.

Soon after, he exited the vehicle and fled the scene with a man and woman in a blue Holden Cruze with NSW registration CZ72NM.

Officers attached to Monaro Police District attended the scene and commenced an investigation.

Shortly after 7am, police were notified after a 39-year-old man from Pambula presented to Queanbeyan Hospital with a gunshot wound to his lower torso.
