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.

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.

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.
