A 14-year-old boy has been found with a sawn-off shotgun and a stash of drugs after an assault in the Queensland city of Gladstone.

Officers say they found the armed teenager in a car they tracked down after a 17-year-old boy was hit in the head with a gun during an attempted robbery at a Philip Street property on Sunday afternoon.

Police say it appears the victim may have been known to the 14-year-old boy, who had a male accomplice.

The 17-year-old was treated for a cut to his forehead.

The 14-year-old is facing drug, weapon and attempted robbery charges.
