Australian police find 7 dead with gunshot wounds

Australia'mass shooting

Speaking at a press conference in the South West, Mr Dawson said a triple-zero call received by police at 5.15am had come from a male person at the 12-hectare property at Osmington, about 20 minutes from Margaret River, and had only lasted a couple of minutes.

Western Australia police commissioner Chris Dawson told Sky News they are not looking for any other suspects.

Cynda Miles lived at the rural property where seven people were found dead.

Dawson say police have no information to raise concerns about the wider public safety.

Dawson refused to be drawn on who the person was that alerted police, their relationship to the victims or whether they heard gunshots.

"The examination of the crime scene will still take several days".

When they arrived, Mr Miles's body was also found dead from a gunshot wound. The other two adults found dead were Cockman's estranged wife Katrina and her 58-year-old mother.

Granddad Peter Miles, husband of Cynda Miles and father of Katrina Cockman - who have been each discovered lifeless on the 30 acre farm - has turn out to be the main target of the investigation into the mass-shooting in Australia. They were also believed to be...

So I hope from now onwards, it just goes in that direction, because I don't think I need to do anything different. Friday's paint one picture but you're never sure what is going to happen", he claimed.

The massacre sparked the nation's tough gun controls, prompting the nation to introduce tough gun controls whose supporters include former USA president Barack Obama.

An opinion piece by Siraj Hashmi, published in the Washington Examiner on Friday, notes that Australia is often touted by United States gun control advocates as "the shining role model" to reduce mass shootings since its 1996 gun buyback program. "Longarm" weapons refer to firearms shot from the shoulder like shotguns and rifles. There was, of course, opposition to the new gun restrictions: Gun owners argued that the laws would not reduce gun crime and would unfairly penalize law-abiding sport-shooters. There were no mass shootings for 18 years afterward, but they make up a small fraction of all shootings.

Australia's homicide rate did not fall in the first years after those restrictions went into place, though suicide declined.

Local media report that Katrina Miles was aged 35, and had four children aged between 13 and eight. Neighbors reported that the children were home-schooled there.

The four children were believed to have had autism.

Osmington is a collection of a few streets, vacation accommodation and vineyards supplying the premium winemaking district known as Margaret River.

"But it doesn't take away what will be a pretty significant issue in the history of the region and the history of Margaret River".

Pamela Townshend, president of the Shire of Augusta-Margaret River, told Fairfax Media: "It's sending shockwaves through the whole community - we're all linked in one way or another, every family".
