Three people have been charged following an incident in Cooloongup last month where a man was allegedly shot at, held against his will and assaulted.

About 5.50pm on Wednesday, February 15, four people allegedly attended an address in Toora Place and confronted the male resident.

As the man looked to flee, police claim that a number of gun shots were fired before the victim was forced into the boot of a vehicle.

He was subsequently assaulted, receiving injuries to his head and body.
