Two high-ranked north Brisbane Bandidos motorcycle gang members have been charged with attempted murder after a man was shot in the face and shoulder over a debt.

The gang's president and sergeant-at-arms were arrested and police also found handguns, a sawn-off rifle, ammunition, fake IDs, drugs and gang paraphernalia during two raids on Sunday.


The weapons and paraphernalia seized during the raids in the Moreton Bay region.

It will be alleged the 45-year-old Samsonvale man and 29-year-old Morayfield man were involved in shooting a 37-year-old man at Samsonvale, almost 30 kilometres north-west of Brisbane, on July 13.

The victim's injuries were serious and he needed surgery at Redcliffe Hospital.
