Family of 7 dead with gunshot wounds in rural Australia

Family of 7 dead with gunshot wounds in rural Australia

He said two officers attended the scene as soon as possible but found seven people dead.

Mr Dawson confirmed the firearms were licensed to Mr Miles.

"We are devastated by this shocking event".

The bodies of four children and three adults were found at or near a property in Osmington near the southwestern tip of Australia.

The bodies of four children and an adult were found in a shed that had been renovated to become a second living space, while a woman's body was also found in the main house. People I have talked to have said the family involved, they are such a well respected family within the community, you know, they never would have dreamed that something like this happens and I guess from talking to people, you know, this really has rattled the really small country town here in the south-west of WA.

The NFA also mandated that applicants wait 28 days from the time they obtain a permit to the time they buy a weapon. Police wouldn't say who made the call.

The police said that four children and three adults were among those murdered.

"Police are now responding to what I can only describe as a horrific incident", said Western Australia state Police Commissioner Chris Dawson.

Katrina Miles describes her occupation as "parent of four attractive children" and had shared pictures of the family at the wedding of her brother, Neil in April 2016.

Per the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, the police are viewing the incident as a murder-suicide and have yet to publicly identify the victims.

She wrote: "Despite four years passing my ex does not stop stalking and harassing me".

The president of the Shire of Augusta-Margaret River, Pamela Townshend, said members of the community could leave flowers, reflect and utilise counselling services at the community resource centre from Saturday to Monday.

Osmington is a collection of a few streets, farms, holiday accommodation and vineyards supplying the premium wine-making district known as Margaret River.

"It wasn't until I saw the police that I thought, "Hang on a minute", Meg Janes told the newspaper.

Police were tipped off by a phone call from a man "connected to the property" and arrived at the rural home in Osmington, south of Perth, at about 5.15am.

"I wish to offer my condolences to the family and to the community about this awful tragedy", Cr Townshend said.

The motive behind what has become the worst mass shooting in Australian history since the 1996 Port Arthur massacre, remains unknown. Mrs Miles has been a stalwart in the sustainability community, volunteering with the local Transition Network and leading recycling initiatives including Cynda's Soft Salvage.

Felicity Haynes, a neighbor and family friend, told the ABC that the victims moved into the home about three years ago. He said. "This is a very distressing day for Western Australia".
