Gold Coast man shot by police was on bail

A man accused of trying to gun down a Queensland policewoman had been released on bail just two months before the shooting, court documents reveal.

Daniel Luke White-Mayne, 26, was shot three times by police - with one of the bullets striking his scrotum - after he allegedly fired on a female constable trying to arrest him in an underground Gold Coast car park last month.

The officer and her male partner were responding to reports of a suspicious vehicle at Solaire Apartments when White-Mayne came out of the elevator with a black bag.

White-Mayne allegedly told police the car was his but he had parked it in the wrong bay.

When the officers tried to arrest him, White-Mayne allegedly pulled out a revolver and yelled "get the f*** off me or I'll shoot".

He allegedly pointed the gun at the head and chest of the woman before firing multiple times.

Both officers shot White-Mayne a total of three times, striking his foot and leg.

His lawyer Danielle Heable said there were indications one of the bullets had travelled through White-Mayne's leg and landed in his scrotum.

White-Mayne was taken to Gold Coast University Hospital for treatment but is now in prison charged with attempted murder, serious assault on a police officer and breach of bail.

Documents filed in the Brisbane Supreme Court last week, during the prosecution's successful bid to revoke his bail, show White-Mayne had been released from custody by Justice Ann Lyons in November despite an "alarming criminal history".

During his break from remand, where he had spent the past 12 months for drug and other offences, White-Mayne is alleged to have absconded from his court-ordered rehabilitation facility, been in possession of methylamphetamine and contacted his girlfriend Briana Ioannides.

White-Mayne's case is due to return to Southport Magistrates Court on April 6.
