Australian police find 7 dead with gunshot wounds

The shooting happened in the village of Osmington in Western Australia More

Relatives of the family at the centre of a suspected murder-suicide in Western Australia say they are "stunned" by what has happened.

"Police are now responding to what I can only describe as a horrific incident", Western Australia Police Commissioner Chris Dawson said at a press conference Friday afternoon.

"This devastating tragedy will no doubt have a lasting impact on the families concerned, the whole community and, in particular, the local communities in our southwest", the police commissioner told reporters. It has a handful of farms, vineyards and stud farms.

Its understood three generations of the same family lived at the Forever Dreaming Farm.

After finding victims, then police have yet to identify the victims publicly. The bodies of four children and one adult were discovered inside the home and two adults were found dead outside.

"Peter has been just trying to hold it together for a long time", Mr Cockman said.

"I actually spoke to him the night before the incident", said Richard Dosser, who lives about two kilometres down the road.

"This will be a very large-scale and detailed investigation".

Police, who were called to the small community of Osmington early on Friday morning, found the bodies of seven people at the scene.

Margaret River's main street, a cafe worker said, "they have got it wrong".

Libby Mettam, a local parliamentarian, said the deaths had sent "significant shockwaves" through the town and the community was hurting.

On Friday, officers found one adult dead outside a building on the property, which lies 20 kilometres north-east of the town of Margaret River.

Western Australia state Premier Mark McGowan, who travelled to Margaret River on Sunday, said he did not think gun laws could be further tightened but he would await recommendations from a coronial inquiry into the shootings.

"They were really close, she and her parents, they were all lovely people".

A mum and her 4 autistic youngsters are amongst seven folks shot lifeless within the worst mass taking pictures in Australia in 22 years however who's the person being investigated by police?

Police are still investigating the circumstances leading up to the worst mass shooting in Australia since the Port Arthur Massacre in 1996 when a gunman killed 35 people in Tasmania.

Australia's gun laws are widely acclaimed as a success, with supporters including former United States president Barack Obama saying Australia has not had a single mass shooting since they were implemented.

"We have been lucky that all forms of gun-related deaths have reduced dramatically since we took that step of having less guns", Glynn Greensmith, an expert on mass shooting incidents, told ABC.

Farmers are allowed to own guns under Australian law due to a legitimate need to use them to kill feral pests and predators or sick or injured livestock.
