Police are investigating whether a man shot in the hand outside his Queensland home was the victim of a targeted attack.

A white Holden Commodore was seen driving up and down Blaxland Place in Narangba about 10pm on Tuesday before it appeared to intentionally smash into a red Mitsubishi SUV.

The car then allegedly fled the scene.

A neighbour who was outside and had witnessed the incident called the owner of the struck vehicle to explain what had happened.

When the 43-year-old man came out, the Commodore returned and a shot was fired at him before the car fled again.

The man was taken to the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital with a gunshot wound to his right hand. He was released without needing surgery.

The victim told 9News the attack was completely random and he wants to know why he was shot at.

Neighbours are also anxious.

"I'm really shocked, we've just moved here," one neighbour told 9News.  

"We've got a bunch of kids over here … it's full on," another said.

Anyone with CCTV or dashcam footage has been urged to contact police.

It was the second shooting in just days after a woman was shot eight minutes away from where the drive-by took place.
