  • 68-Year-Old Father Found Dead After Fatally Shooting His Teenage Children

THE first pictures of the two children shot dead by their father have been released at the request of their grieving mother who returned home for the first since time the tragic event.

Police were called to a house on Hull Road in West Pennant Hills about 5:20pm.

A boy and girl, described by police as "young teenagers" were killed in the incident while a woman in her 30s, who police believe to be their mother, turned up at the scene shortly after police arrived.

New South Wales Police Acting Assistant Commissioner Brett McFadden told reporters the father appeared to have planned the killings, using legally-owned firearms.

Police and emergency services attended the home after reports of shots being fired but McFadden said investigations into whether the children were siblings and who lived at the home were still ongoing.

"You've got a family that is going to struggle to come to terms with it and emergency responders will struggle to come to terms with what they have seen".

NSW Ambulance Inspector Kevin McSweeney said that when paramedics arrived they "were confronted with an extremely distressing and stressful situation". News.com.au has contacted both organisations but spokespersons said they were unable to yet deny or verify the alleged affiliations.

"I couldn't believe it", he said.

Police set up a road block at Dean Street and Hull Road where a group of concerned neighbours gathered. "It's so horrific ... especially for such young people to be the ones killed". Homicide detectives continued doorknocking neighbours late into the night in search of information as to exactly what transpired. It is understood the two teens' bodies were removed just before 6am.
