A man who shot another man through the front door of a Gold Coast home in what police suspect was a case of mistaken identity remains on the run.
Police said a man in his 30s or 40s got out of a 2003 green Daewoo that had pulled up to a home on Plateau Crescent in Carrara on January 8 and fired a single shot through the front door, leaving a man inside with a bullet wound to his hand.
The 44-year-old victim had been trying to hold his front door closed when he was shot. Her later underwent multiple surgeries on his hand.
"We believe this shooting was a case of mistaken identity," Detective Inspector Mark Thompson told reporters on Thursday.
"We don't believe the male shot in this instance was the target."
Police do not believe the men were known to each other and are urging witnesses to come forward.
The 26-year-old female driver of the car was charged last week and is due to face Maroochydore Magistrates Court on September 20.
A rifle used in the attack has not been found and police are still searching for the shooter and two other passengers, including a blonde woman in her 30s or 40s.
