Reuters – Witnesses have spoken of their fear when a gunman opened fire across various locations in Darwin, killing four people, as the Northern Territory government launched a review on Wednesday (June 5) into the circumstances of the rampage.

The suspect, who had been on parole since January and is in police custody, was believed to have used a shotgun that had been stolen, Police Commissioner, Reece Kershaw told media. The suspect was wearing an electronic monitoring device as part of his parole conditions.

Police have identified eight crime scenes, including pubs, a motel and a convenience store.

Australia has some of the world’s toughest gun control laws, adopted after its worst mass shooting when a gunman killed 35 people at Port Arthur in the island state of Tasmania.
