Two-Year-Old Twins Among Victims in Perth Mass Killing

Western Australia police said Monday the "five people killed were twin two-year-old girls, a three and a half-year-old girl, their mother and grandmother".

Assistant commissioner Paul Steel confirmed the victims were both adults and children, but would not clarify their ages or genders.

Homicide detectives and specialist forensic police will on Monday continue to comb the Coode Street home for evidence and clues to what happened after the shocking discovery.

A man in his 20s surrendered himself at a regional WA police station, before officers visited a home on Coode St in the suburb of Bedford.

Maria Manfredini, who lives at the property behind where the incident occurred, said she was shocked by the tragedy.

He did not confirm the exact number of dead, nor did he detail what the relationship was between the man in custody and the deceased.

The bodies of children are among five discovered by police at a house in Western Australia.

Assistant Commissioner Steel said there were "no ongoing safety concerns" at the scene.

Another neighbour told WA Today she didn't know the home's occupants personally, but would often wave and say hello as she walked past.

"It's so calm, so quiet, that something so tragic has taken place is just horrific on every level", she told reporters.

He said forensic teams were on the scene and investigators were trying to piece together a timeline of events. He was questioned, but it's unclear if he's related to the victims and no charges have been laid yet.

"They were a ideal family. this is a attractive neighbourhood, it's quiet", Alfie said.

"It is tragic not only for the family and the friends, it is also tragic for those first responders who are forced to attend such scenes".

"It's taken us by complete shock", she said.

The deaths follow the murder of a mother and her two children in Ellenbrook in July, and the Margaret River mass shooting that left seven people dead in May.

Ms Cambos revealed to Perth Now that the family's father ran a lawnmowing and landscaping business and she had not seen his work ute outside the premises for some days.
