Western Australia Shooting: Four Children, Three Adults Found Dead

Police would not comment on the possibility of murder-suicide, but said they are not looking for a suspect.

The commissioner confirmed the person who made the call had a connection to the property but would not confirm the nature of the link.

South West Superintendent Mick Sutherland said on Friday that police will be investigating the property as a crime scene for up to five days, according to the Times.

Police said the deceased appear to be residents of the property but would not confirm their identity.

WA police chief commissioner Chris Dawson. He declined to release the names or ages of the dead.

Instead, Western Australia authorities are referring to what may have been a domestic incident as a "mass shooting". That mass shooting prompted strict gun laws in the country, including penalties of up to 14 years in jail for unregistered firearms.

This marks the worst mass shooting in Australia in 22 years.

Prior to this incident, the worst mass shooting - defined as a shooting involving five or more victims - since Port Arthur involved a man killing himself and four members of his family on a rural New South Wales property in Lockhart in 2014.

Police have revealed few details about the recent killings, and it is not clear whether there was more than one shooter.

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

Dozens of Homicide Squad Detectives and forensic investigators remain at the rural property on Osmington Road. "Naturally we will be asking for anyone who does know anything about this matter to contact police", Chief Commissioner Chris Dawson said.

Dawson said two firearms were found at the scene. All weapons must be registered, although many arrive illegally from overseas through organised syndicates.

"They were just such lovely people", she said.

The children were reported by home-schooled, with local residents saying nothing but good of the family.

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.

This is a service for people who may be thinking about suicide, or those who are concerned about family or friends.
