Margaret River shooting: Grandfather 'planned' Australia deaths

I think he's been thinking this through for a long time.

"We try and get back to business as normal, the community will certainly be endeavouring to do that, and I guess as time goes on you talk a little less about it".

Despite the firearm-related deaths of seven people near Margaret River, Australia still remains an example to the world on the necessity of strict gun control, West Australian Premier Mark McGowan said.

Mr Cockman said he still loved Miles for "who Peter was".

Police believe property owners Mr Miles and his wife Cynda, aged 58, are among the dead at the Forever Dreaming Farm in Osmington, northeast of tourist hub Margaret River.

Police officials say seven people including four children were found dead with gunshot wounds at a rural property in southwest Australia in what could be the country's worst mass shooting in 22 years.

"I actually spoke to him the night before the incident", said Richard Dosser, who lives about two kilometres down the road.

It seems FOX has made a decision to do the latter, and Seann William Scott has landed his first-ever network series role. Crawford was recently fired from the series following two on-set incidents related to concerns over working conditions.

Investigators have not revealed the motive behind the shootings, with Mr Cockman only saying he previously enjoyed a close relationship with Ms Miles' parents.

In Osmington and in Margaret River, though, there was little interest in political debates.

In a statement, the extended family said on Saturday they were devastated.

Although police said that they are not searching for a suspect, they would not confirm reports that the incident was likely a murder-suicide.

Overwhelmingly, we are asking ourselves how to set up measures to ensure other farming families in crisis in regional Australia receive real assistance before another tragedy occurs.

The extended family is fully co-operating with police, while the children's father is also getting the support he needs.

Speaking to reporters outside Margaret River police station in Australia, Mr Cockman said his children looked "peaceful in their beds".

Police were called to the harrowing scene at the rural property on Friday morning.

Cockman said Miles did not make a "snap" decision to kill his wife, daughter and grandchildren.

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".

The bodies of two adults were found outside the home and the other five victims were found inside.

"It's a fabulous part of the state that most of us know reasonably well".

Commissioner Dawson said: "Homicide Squad detectives from Perth are assisting local police in investigating the circumstances surrounding this tragedy".

It is expected that the handset may appear with an in-display fingerprint scanner, in-screen earpiece, and a pop-up selfie camera. The antenna lines on the side of the unit also suggest the device would have a metal unibody, rather than a glass rear-housing.
