Three Confirmed Dead After Queensland Triple Shooting

Three people have died in a family-related triple shooting on Queensland's Fraser Coast.

Police confirmed two women, aged 50 and 68, and a 79-year-old man died following the shooting at a Booral home around 6.40am on Thursday.

One woman was found dead in the house, while the other two died in hospital.

"Police have located one deceased person in the house and another two persons suffering severe gunshot wounds," an officer told reporters at the scene.

There have been unconfirmed reports the man called police to report shooting his wife and daughter.

The Morning Show also alleged that the wife was diagnosed with cancer earlier in 2016, while the daughter may have had a disability. 

The shooting is being treated as a "domestic" incident and its believed no one else was involved.

A firearm was seized from the property and a crime scene has been established at the scene.
