A MAN and a pregnant woman were rushed to hospital after a shooting on the Gold Coast believed to be linked to bikie gangs.

The man, 42, was shot in the shoulder at a house on the Tamborine-Oxenford Road at Wongawallan in the Gold Coast hinterland about 6.20pm after two men entered the property, reported the Courier Mail.

He was taken by ambulance to the Gold Coast Hospital.

The shooting is understood to be bikie-related. The victim and his partner were believed to have been tied up. A child was also present when the man was shot.

Officers from Taskforce Hydra, which investigates the activities of outlaw motorcycle gangs, were being called into the investigation.

Police regional duty officer Inspector Paul Reynolds said a man had been shot in the chest and had been taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

"It's in the very early stages of the investigation and we're still getting full versions from the people involved to ascertain exactly what happened," he said.

 A pregnant woman, 39, who was at the house, was also being taken to hospital 'as a precaution', a Department of Emergency Services spokeswoman said.

She said the man was in a stable condition.

Police are seeking public assistance in locating the two men who are believed to be driving a late 90s model white Holden utility, believed to be fitted with mag wheels and in good condition
