Seven found dead with gunshot wounds on west Australia property

Chris Dawson the police commissioner of West Australia said the tragedy would have a lasting effect on the whole community

The police said that four children and three adults were among those murdered.

The unnamed relatives of the Miles family said they were "still trying to understand how this could happen".

'We respectfully ask the community to refrain from speculating on the circumstances surrounding this tragic incident'.

"We're still yet to make contact with other members of the family so at this point in time, all I'll confirm is that there are four children and three adults that have all been located deceased".

They also reiterated they were not looking for other suspects.

"Police are now responding to what I can only describe as a horrific incident", said Western Australia state Police Commissioner Chris Dawson.

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

"This devastating tragedy will no doubt have a lasting impact on the families concerned, the whole community and, in particular, the local communities in our South West", he told reporters. "We're providing him with as much support as we can".

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

He said in this case it appears the guns were licensed.

"I'm not going to put a timeframe on that", Mr Dawson said.
