Detectives have charged three more people over an incident in Cooloongup that saw a man allegedly kidnapped and bashed after shots were fired.

Police will allege four people attended a home on Toora Place on February 15 and confronted the male resident.

The resident attempted to run from the home, before a number of shots were allegedly fired and the man was forced into the boot of a Mitsubishi Magna.

He was then allegedly driven to an isolated area in Hopeland and bashed.

The Magna was later found dumped on Surf Drive in Secret Harbour.
