7 people, including 4 children, found dead at home in southwestern Australia


Seven people, including four children and three adults, have been found dead at a home near Margaret River in Western Australia's South West, APA reported citing ABC.

 

Police are treating the incident as a murder-suicide and have confirmed they are not looking for any suspects.

 

The situation is the worst mass shooting in Australia since the 1996 Port Arthur massacre, in which 35 people died and another 23 were seriously injured.

 

WA Police Commissioner Chris Dawson said officers were called to the rural property in Osmington, about 20 kilometres north-east of Margaret River, about 5:15am today.

 

Two adults were found outside the house and the other five bodies were discovered inside.

 

Two firearms were found at the scene.
