Seven die in Australia's worst shooting for 22 years

Family of seven found dead in rural Australia

The children's father, Aaron Cockman, was a local carpenter and builder, news.com.au reports.

Police do not believe that there is a "larger threat to public safety", perhaps suggesting that the shooter was one of the people found dead.

The bodies were those of Peter and Cynda Miles, their daughter Katrina Miles and her four children, according to a friend of the deceased.

"The events in our South West are tragic and shocking", McGowan said on Twitter.

'We respectfully ask the community to refrain from speculating on the circumstances surrounding this tragic incident'.

On Saturday, Commissioner Dawson confirmed three longarm firearms were recovered at the property, all of which were licensed to Peter Miles.

The two other bodies, found outside, were reported to be Miles' parents, Cynda and Peter Miles.

"Police do not believe any other person is involved in these crimes".

They are not looking for a suspect as they are treating the incident as a mass murder-suicide investigation.

"The reason police went to the property was from a telephone call which we've recorded", said Dawson, who would not comment on the identity of the caller.

More recently Mr Miles had been touting for work, offering his skills doing farm maintenance and odd jobs on neighbours' properties.

I have over 30 years' farming experience and over 12 years' vineyard experience.

A man called 911 at 5:15 a.m.to report the murders, Dawson said, but would not identify who the caller was.

"I wanted someone nearby to check my property twice a week, or so".

Three firearms have been found at the Osmington farm where seven members of the same family were found dead from gunshot wounds.

A neighbor, Meg Janes, told Perth Now she heard the gunshots and assumed someone was shooting kangaroos but said in hindsight it was likely something far more sinister.

Mr Garnett said he was feeling helpless and at a loss on hearing the news, so he cooked sausages and brought them with bread and sauce to the police officers manning the roadblock, which will likely remain in place on his street for days to come. "It wasn't the grandfather".

Two adults were found outside the house and the other five victims, including four kids, were found inside. "We will get on with our job but, regrettably, these tragedies do take their toll on everyone", he said.
