A man is in a critical condition after being shot in the stomach during a confrontation in north Queensland.

Three men arrived at a Collinsville home at 12.45am on Saturday where they argued with a 26-year-old man.

Police said the occupant grabbed a firearm from inside the home before shooting one man in the stomach.

The injured man, 29, was helped into a vehicle and taken to Collinsville Hospital before being airlifted to Townsville Hospital where he remained in a critical but stable condition.

The 26-year-old has been taken into custody and is assisting with the investigation.
