Australian police find 7 dead with gunshot wounds

He said police thought the call was made from the property, but said it was a "complex criminal investigation".

West Australian Police Commissioner Chris Dawson says support is being offered to all those involved. She looked at me, her eyes welling up with tears, and muttered one word.

"We are treating this as a matter in which six persons are the subject of a homicide crime scene, [while] there is a seventh person deceased".

At the scene they found the bodies of seven people.

"We are stunned and still trying to understand how this could happen", they said.

The family members asked community members to not speculate on the circumstances of the deaths, according to the Australian Broadcasting Corp.

Three firearms licensed to Peter Miles were found by investigators.

Mr Dawson clarified only one body was found outside the property's buildings.

Dawson said he could describe it only as a "horrific incident".

Augusta-Margaret River Shire president Pamela Townsend said the incident had impacted everyone in the area.

The grandfather, who formerly worked as the farm manager at Margaret River Senior High School, posted a Gumtree advertisement last week looking for "vineyard and farm work".

Peter had labored as a farmer and instructor and was previously the supervisor of the Margaret River Excessive Faculty farm.

Mr Cockman said he was "filled with tremendous sadness" over the loss of his children, but also said he took some small solace in the fact the children were found in their beds. However he declined to confirm whether it was Peter Miles who made the call.

He purchased the 30-acre farm in late 2014 alongside along with his spouse Cynda. "I have extensive handyman abilities and experience with a wide variety of farm equipment, can fix fences, and tidy up the property from storm damage", he said.

Margaret River is famous worldwide for wine, surf and idyllic holidays.

Mrs Miles has been a stalwart in the sustainability community, volunteering with the local Transition Network and leading recycling initiatives including Cynda's Soft Salvage.

"I am absolutely devastated that this has happened in our community", she said.

"I wanted someone nearby to check my property twice a week, or so".

In a land of only 18 million people, almost everyone knew someone, or knew someone who knew someone, who was among the 500 or so people in the small waterfront historic site at Port Arthur that day.

"Seven people is just shocking", he said.

"It's just horrifying, just horrifying", Haynes, a family friend, told 9 News Australia, explaining that she heard three gunshots - and then two more - at about 4 a.m., but did not think much about it.
