Seven people found dead in Western Australia

Seven people have been found dead at a rural property in what is reported to be Australia’s worst mass shooting since 1996. The bodies of four children and three adults were discovered in the town of Osmington in Western Australia (WA), 280km (170 miles) south of Perth.

Three generations of the same family were among the victims, Australia’s ABC News reported. Police have not yet confirmed widespread reports of murder-suicide. Officials did, however, say that two firearms were found at the scene and said there was no ongoing threat to public safety.

If confirmed, it would be Australia’s worst mass shooting since a massacre in Port Arthur, Tasmania, claimed the lives of 35 people in 1996.
