Australian police find 7 dead with gunshot wounds

Australian police find 7 dead with gunshot wounds

While there have been some mass killings since Port Arthur, the latest killings could prove to be the single biggest incident of gun-related deaths since 1996.

Dawson say police have no information to raise concerns about the wider public safety.

Just last month Katrina had taken to Facebook to complain about her ex, writing: 'My ex does not stop stalking me'.

'Upon arrival, police located seven persons deceased.

Authorities in Western Australia responded early Friday morning to a home in Osmington, not far from Perth, where the four children and three adults were found dead from gunshot wounds, according to local news reports.

The dead include four children aged between 13 and eight.

Members of the extended Miles family released a statement expressing their shock at the shooting.

The family members asked community members to not speculate on the circumstances of the deaths, according to the Australian Broadcasting Corp.

'We thank the community for their support and ask that our privacy is respected as we grieve'. The bodies of two adults were found outside a building on the property and the rest were found inside.

Police would not comment on the possibility of murder-suicide, but they are not looking for a suspect.

Police were called to the property just after 5 a.m. on Friday. The shooter is absconding and an investigation has been launched to identify the motive of the attack.

"We live in a attractive sleepy part of Margaret River and the last thing you would expect is something like this".


Peter Miles has been described by some locals as a lovely, hardworking man, but others recalled a more quiet character who they did not know well. They all resided at the property, he said.

Detectives are working to establish if Peter killed his family and then called police before turning the gun on himself.

"I have over 30 years farming experience and over 12 years vineyard experience", he wrote.

"I have lived in the Margaret River area all my life and welcome all enquiries".

The worst mass shooting in USA history occurred in Las Vegas in 2017, when a gunman killed roughly 60 people and injured several hundred others.

"I have extensive handyman abilities and experience with a wide variety of farm equipment, can fix fences, and tidy up the property from storm damage. He was going to meet with me at 10 o'clock [on Saturday]".

"They were a very socially-aware family - doing their best to create a safe community - and that is why it is so shocking to think that could be destroyed so quickly", neighbor Felicity Haynes told the Australian Broadcasting Corp.

"Many people who know the family are deeply feeling the loss and the community understandably do want answers".

Adam Navarone, who recently moved to Margaret River, where he works at a small shop, said his younger cousin had played football with one of the young victims. "It wasn't the grandfather". Police initially said that two people were found outside. He added that the victims had gunshot wounds and bodies of five victims - the four children and one adult - were found inside the shed.

"Community centres have opened their doors to provide support", he said.

"We know that other countries in response to one mass shooting have managed to craft laws that nearly eliminate mass shootings".

Cynda, who had her own business, has been remembered by friends for her commitment to the environment.
