Shooting probe detectives 'not looking for anyone else'

Detectives have confirmed they are not looking for anyone else in connection with a fatal shooting at a house in Surrey.

Detectives have confirmed they are not looking for anyone else in connection with a fatal shooting at a house in Surrey.

Officers found two children and two adults, who are believed to have been shot this morning at a family home in Heathside, in Camberley.

Concerned neighbours had raised the alarm.

Speaking outside the estate, where the house is situated, Superintendent John Beavis said: "There is no indication to suggest the involvement of anyone else."

He confirmed that police had found a shotgun in the house which was being examined by forensic scientists. Mr Beavis says the bodies were found upstairs and in separate rooms but would not give any more details.

Undertakers are due shortly at the executive-style Heathside Park estate to take away the bodies for post-mortem examinations.

Speaking at the gates of the estate, Mr Beavis said: "This morning we had a call from friends who visited the family who live at the address here.

"They were concerned that there had been no contact or sighting of the family over the weekend. They rightly called us and we came and had to force our entry to the house. We found the bodies of four persons inside, two infants, one male and one female."

Asked if he had any idea of a possible motive for the shootings, he said: "We are open-minded at the moment. We are not looking for anyone else at this time. We are making inquiries of friends and family."

Mr Beavis says there is nothing to suggest that the family was connected with the military. He says the identities of the victims would not be released until tomorrow.
