A two-month-old baby girl has died and three others have been seriously injured in a stabbing incident at Parkinson on Brisbane’s southside, police say.
At 2:30pm, officers were called to two homes in Watheroo Place and Mapleton Circuit at Parkinson after reports of a loud domestic disturbance.
When officers arrived, they found the infant, her 20-year-old mother, grandmother and grandfather with serious injuries.
The baby girl was taken to Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital in a critical condition, while the adults were taken to the Princess Alexandra Hospital, also in critical conditions.
The baby later died of her injuries, police said.
Acting Police Inspector Sean Mackay said it appeared one of the women ran to a neighbour’s house for help.
“One of the victims went to the secondary crime scene and that’s where police were notified from there,” he said.
Two crime scenes have been established, with both Watheroo Place and Mapleton Circuit closed.
Dozens of police are investigating the circumstances and door knocking homes in the area.
A neighbour told the ABC she was shocked to come home and find such an incident unfolding in the neighbourhood.
“We’re quite surprised to come home and find something like this on our doorstep,” she said.
“Lots of police cars, ambulance, and the road cordoned off, we were pretty upset to see that.”
