3 Generations Of A Family Shot Dead In Australia
Tragedy has befallen a family in Austaralia.
Three generations of the single family were identified, Saturday, as the victims of Australia’s worst mass shooting in 22 years, a murder-suicide which left seven people dead.
They included Katrina Miles, 35, and her four children — three boys and a girl aged eight to 13 — who were found Friday in a shed on a rural property near the Margaret River wine region in Western Australia, police said.
Miles’ mother Cynda Miles, 58, was found in the main house at the property and her father Peter Miles, 61, was found outside, Police Commissioner Chris Dawson told reporters.
Three firearms licensed to Peter Miles were also found, he said.
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.
