Shocking footage of a daylight brawl ending with gunshots in central Queensland has been released, as police hunt for the three people involved.

At 3.30pm on Monday, the video shows two men started a fight in a busy Rockhampton street. The dramatic recording shows punches being thrown in the eastbound lanes of Fitzroy St, between Murray St and George Lane, as bystanders watch on.

Shortly after, the woman and one of the men involved in the altercation walked back to a parked blue car in George Lane.

A man then exited a dark coloured vehicle in Murray St with what police say appeared to be a rifle.

A Queensland Police spokesperson said the man had “discharged the weapon down Fitzroy St towards the man and woman walking to their vehicle.”

The man then climbed back into his car and fled the scene headed west.

The other man and woman drove off at speed as well.

Rockhampton detectives are urging anyone who witnessed the incident, has mobile phone footage of the incident, or who was in the area of Fitzroy St, George Lane or Archer St between 3.15pm and 4pm and may have dashcam footage to contact them.
