Police have charged a man over the shooting of a woman in Brisbane’s north earlier this month.

A 30-year-old Boondall man has been charged with grievous bodily harm and unlawful possession of a weapon over the December 10 incident.

A 38-year-old woman was allegedly shot in the chest on the footpath outside a townhouse on Campbell Terrace in Wavell Heights about 6am.

The woman was taken by ambulance to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, where she has undergone emergency surgery.

The man will face Brisbane Magistrates Court this morning.
