Seis mortos em propriedade remota na Austrália
December 13, 2022 - Um cerco de seis horas numa propriedade remota no Queensland acabou com a morte de dois polícias, um elemento do público e três criminosos.
Six people, two of them police officers, have been shot dead after an ambush at a remote Australian property.
Four police officers were searching for missing former school Principal Nathaniel Train in Wieambilla, northwest of Brisbane, when they were fired upon.
Two of the police officers were shot dead, with two others escaping.
The offenders then set fire to the surrounding scrub to try and flush out the two surviving police who were hiding there.
A neighbouring land owner arrived to investigate the fire and gunshots, and was also shot dead in cold blood.
After a six-hour stand-off, specialist police officers returned fire, killing two men, Nathaniel and Gareth Train, and a woman, Stacey Train – bringing the siege to an end.
Investigation into why the events unfolded are ongoing.
