In Australia are investigating the bloody murder over 22 years

MARGARET RIVER TRAGEDY PRESSER

All seven of those found dead lived on the property, authorities said.

The bodies of four children and three adults were found at or near a property in Osmington near the southwestern tip of Australia. It is being hailed as Australia's worst mass shooting [VIDEO] in 22 years.

An Australian community is reeling from the deadliest mass shooting the country has seen in more than 20 years, after seven people, including four children, were discovered dead on a rural property near Margaret River.

The mother, Katrina Miles, was found dead with her three sons and one daughter, ages 8 to 13.

After being alerted by a phone call before dawn, police found the bodies and two guns at the property, Western Australia state Police Commissioner Chris Dawson said.

"I'm very confident as I stand here that the call and response that they made was exactly the same as what I would have done".

In a Facebook post on her own page, Ms Miles described herself as the "parent of four lovely children".

What they found was the bodies of two adults outside, and another adult and four children inside the converted shed. Police have not made a direct statement regarding the shooter and his or her motives.


Katrina Cockman's four children were among the dead, and all four were autistic according to local reports.

"She was just the best mother and the nicest person, if you walked into her she always had a attractive word to say and would stop to chat or grab a coffee if she had time", she said. Both Peter and Cynda were well-known in Margaret River for their volunteer and charity work. "My thoughts are with the family and friends of the victims, and also with the first responders and investigators as they piece together this tragic set of circumstances".

The call about the murders came in at 5:15 AM on Friday (May 11).

"Police are now responding to what I can only describe as a horrific incident", Dawson told reporters. It is unclear the motive behind the murders and police are still looking into the case.

'The point is this: while some data suggest that super-strict gun control has cut down on gun violence and gun-related deaths in some cases, there's still no guarantee that you're safe, ' Hashmi writes. There were 35 people killed and 23 wounded at the hands of a gunman.

One killing spree was enough to change Australian gun laws forever.

Australia has banned all semi-automatic rifles and all semi-automatic and pump-action shotguns, and has a restrictive system of licensing and ownership controls.

The unnamed relatives of the Miles family said they were "still trying to understand how this could happen", according to a BBC News report on Saturday.
