Triple murder suspect arrested
A 44-YEAR-old Sydney man was arrested on Sunday after police found him at the scene of what appeared to be a triple murder in a unit in the city's western suburbs.
Fairfield Local Area Commander Peter Lennon told reporters at the scene two men, a woman and two dogs were found dead in a bloody scene at the unit.
Commander Lennon said the 44-year-old man was taken to a hospital for treatment of what may have been self-inflicted injuries.
The man was under police guard and in a stable condition in the hospital on Sunday.
While the three victims were yet to be formally identified, some unconfirmed reports on Saturday said the victims and the 44-year-old man may have been related.
Commander Lennon could not confirm the identity of anyone involved on Sunday.
