Family of seven found dead in rural Australia

I don't feel angry.

Katrina Miles and her 4 youngsters have been discovered lifeless in a farmhouse in rural Western AustraliaFbWhat occurred in Osmington?

Cynda and Peter Miles bought the 30-acre hobby farm in late 2014.Peter Miles, a farmer and teacher, was formerly the manager of the Margaret River High School farm, and ran a handyman business.

"Peter didn't snap, he thought this through", he said, reported 9News. But gun-control experts have been saying for years that Australia's laws have slowly softened, and they said it was still far too common for Australians to have more than one weapon at home around children.

Police say they were alerted to the killings by a phone call from a man at the property early on Friday morning.

The family of seven, including four children, were found dead with gunshot wounds Friday at a rural property in southwest Australia in what is the country's worst mass shooting in 22 years, police and news media said.

The question was whether Australia still remains an example of "excellent" gun control after the mass shooting.

"We will investigate this awful crime", said Dawson, noting that this event is "a terrible tragedy".

"The loss of any life is tragic but four children and three adults, this is a significant tragedy", he said, adding that police and other specialists would be at the scene for several days at least.

Police have said they found three licensed guns on the property belonging to Miles and they are not looking for any other suspects.

Liverpool ace Salah: Am I at Ronaldo, Messi level?
Cristiano Ronaldo was back in action as Real Madrid trained ahead of their clash with Celta Vigo yesterday morning. He was responsible for one of the goals that resulted in his side avoiding defeat at Camp Nou on May 6.

The police chaplain has been supporting officers through what Commissioner Dawson described as one of the most confronting police have had to deal with.

The entire family had all been shot by firearms licensed to grandfather Peter Miles, who was among the dead.

"I'm very confident as I stand here that the call and response that they made was exactly the same as what I would have done".

"Communities such as Margaret River have seen trauma before and they will recover, but this will take some time".

"I don't understand the suicide part of the story", said a close friend of Katrina's, who has asked not to be named.

Mass shootings are uncommon in Australia and Friday's was the deadliest since a 1996 massacre that left 35 dead at Port Arthur in Tasmania.

Haynes told 9 News that over the years, Cynda Miles had become a beloved member of the small community.

"You can imagine this warm, motherly person who's always smiling", she said, "always generous and brings fresh baked scones to everything".
