A crime scene has been set up in Nerang after a shot was fired on Eureka Street last night.
Police believe a man in his 20s was threatened and assaulted by three men at a property at around 8pm on Thursday, before a shot was fired in the carport.
A neighbour has told News Corp the man was pistol-whipped, bitten on the ear and stomped on by the group.
The trio fled the scene, as well as the victim, before he turned up at the Gold Coast University Hospital.
He suffered non-life threatening injuries from the attack, but wasn't hit by the bullet.
