The person or people responsible for shooting a Brisbane doctor dead in his garage while his family were home remain on the run.


The 56-year-old general practitioner was packing his car in the garage of his MacGregor home with the door open when a man pulled up in a light coloured sedan or hatchback and shot him in the chest about 11.40pm yesterday.


"The man's family was home at the time, his wife and two adult children," Detective Acting Inspector Steven McCartney said.


The family did not witness the shooting but immediately called emergency services.


Critical care paramedics attempted to stablilise the critically injured 56-year-old and he was transferred to Princess Alexandra Hospital but later died.


Police are hunting the man's killer and have not ruled out more than one person was involved.


Forensic police are at the home on Delfin Drive today searching for evidence.


Officers are also door-knocking the neighbourhood searching for witnesses and security video.


They are unable to say what type of gun was used or at what range the shooter fired from.


The victim worked as a doctor in Brisbane's Chinese community on the city's south side.


His wife is an overseas trained doctor, and their two adult children are also studying to become doctors.


Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
