Queensland police are on the hunt for a 20-year-old-man they believe was involved in a “rolling road rage” incident that’s being treated as a homicide.

The hit-and-run incident killed a 25-year-old man south of Brisbane yesterday afternoon.

Detective Acting Superintendent Paul Dalton said the incident involving two cars began at Everton Hills and ended on Wembley Road at Browns Plains around 3:00pm, where the 25-year-old man was struck and killed.

“Initial police investigations quickly led us to evolve this matter into a homicide investigation and an investigation centre has been established at the Logan Police Station and it’s being managed by detectives from Logan CIB and the homicide investigation group,” he said.

Initial investigations suggested that the men were not known to each other, he said.

“It appears that these two vehicles and the occupants had been interacting with each other for a period of half an hour.”

Acting Superintendent Dalton said the alleged 20-year-old male offender’s Audi hatchback was found at a Marsden address and forensic examinations were underway.

Police are still trying to locate the man, who has connections to south Brisbane and the Logan area.

“We know who you are. We will continue to look for you until we find you.

“This won’t go away, it’s a very serious matter.

“Show a bit of conscience and a bit of heart turn yourself to police, and you’ll be fairly dealt with,” Acting Superintendent Dalton said.

He said that the incident would affect everyone involved, including witnesses.

“These people are just members of our community who are out there living a lawful life going about their business and they have to witness this.

“This will impact on them for the rest of their life.”

Acting Superintendent Dalton appealed to people to keep their cool while driving on Queensland roads.

“If you get cranky in a car, take a breath — think about it, relax, drive the other way, we’ll just act like a reasonable patient person because we can go from someone getting cut off … to someone dying and a homicide investigation,” he said.

He urged anyone with information relating to the incident to come forward.

“We’re particularly interested if anyone has any CCTV footage of the incident or all the events leading up to it.”
