MACQUARIE NATIONAL NEWS

Police have confirmed four people are dead after a shooting in Darwin.

The gunman allegedly went on an hour-long rampage with a shotgun, shooting people at five different locations on Tuesday night.

Four men have been killed and one woman has been injured.

A 45-year-old man is in custody.

Police have confirmed the man is well-known to them and was released from jail on parole in January.

He was also wearing an electronic monitoring bracelet at the time of the shooting.

Police say the man has links to outlaw bikie gangs.

The motivation for the attack is still unknown, but police say it isn’t terrorism-related.

Northern Territory Police Commissioner Reece Kershaw tells Alan Jones the suspect was part of a respected local family.

“He’s well known to many people and that’s why the ripples in the Territory are very intense when this occurs.”
