Six dead – including two police officers killed ‘execution-style’ – at remote Australian property

Six people were killed, including two officers from the police, in a gunfight at a Queensland home.

Matthew Arnold (26), and Rachel McCrow (29), were both present at the property to investigate reports about a missing person.

They were then confronted by two heavily-armed offenders , who were apparently wearing camouflage fatigues.

After a six-hour standoff, two suspects and one additional person were finally shot dead by air and back-up support.


One member of the general public, a neighbor who attempted to help the officers, was also killed in that initial attack. Two other officers were also taken to hospital.

Queensland police have not officially revealed the identities, but local media reported that they were Nathaniel Train (46), Gareth Train (46), and an unidentified woman.

‘Lives cruelly shortened’

Anthony Albanese, the Australian Prime Minister, described the incident as “terrible” and “heartbreaking” for the loved ones and friends of Queensland Police officers who died in the line-of-duty.

He stated, “I pay tribute. Their surviving officers are also my tributes… Additionally, I want to pay tribute to Alan Dare (a neighbor driven by the need to help), who was also tragically killed in this tragedy.

“Three lives were tragically cut short. This is a terrible day for all who loved these Australians.
