Horror as five people 'including 3 children' found dead at Perth home

Australian police found up to five dead people including a woman and children on Sunday in a suburb of the western city of Perth, a senior officer said.

Assistant commissioner Paul Steel told local media: "Police have located the bodies of a number of deceased people including women and children".

The bodies were discovered in a house in Perth in Western Australia after a man in his 20s went to the regional police station, 9News reported.

Mr Steel said it was expected the crime scene examination could take "a number of days" and would involve specialist forensic police officers.

'I can say there was at least one woman but I can't say more than that I'm afraid, ' he said at a press conference today.

The man is in custody while homicide detectives try to piece together the timeline leading up to the deaths.

Police subsequently attended the home on Coode Street about midday.

"We're all in complete shock".

In July, four children and three adults were found dead at a Western Australia property in Osmington, in Australia's worst mass shooting since the 1996 Port Arthur massacre.

"There are no on-going concerns for public safety as a result of this incident".

"This is a tragic event and it will no doubt have an impact not only on the family and friends of the deceased but for the whole of the community and those first responders who are faced with attending a scene of multiple deceased people", he said.

"The homicide squad now have teams of detectives on the ground, accompanied by specialist forensic police who are meticulously working their way through this crime scene".
