Seven feared dead in 'mass tragedy' in Western Australia”

Police said the deceased appear to be residents of the property but would not confirm their identity.

Police have confirmed seven people died in the incident, which they described as "horrific".

A major investigation is underway with reports that up to seven people have been found dead in a home overnight just outside of Margaret River.

Two guns were found at the property.

Commissioner Dawson added "two firearms" were located at the scene.

Two adults were found outside the house and the other five bodies were discovered inside. Four of the victims are children.

At a press briefing on Friday, Dawson said police had been called to the outskirts of a rural property at about 5.15am.

"At this point in time we have no information to raise concerns about wider public safety issues".

The police received a phone call shortly before their attendance at the scene, the commissioner confirmed.

Commissioner Dawson announced the discovery at a media conference in Perth, describing the deaths as a tragedy.

Police are not looking for any suspects at this time.

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

Other members of the families are in the process of being located.
