Man Found Dead After Sydney Teens Shooting

A man being sought after a teenage girl and boy were killed in a suspected domestic violence-related shooting at a home in Sydney's northwest has been found dead.

The suspect's body was found at another home in Normanhurst, about seven kilometres from the scene of the initial killings, early on Friday morning, NSW Police have confirmed.

It's believed the man was the father of the children and aged in his 50s.

The 15-year-old boy and a 13-year-old girl were found dead in their bedrooms at a house in Hull Road at West Pennant Hills shortly before 5.30pm on Thursday.

Their mother, 36, arrived shortly after police and was treated by paramedics for severe shock.

Det Supt McFadden said it was a "targeted attack".

"We do believe that it may well be domestic violence-related," he told reporters late on Thursday.

NSW Ambulance Inspector Kevin Sweeney said paramedics were faced with an "extremely distressing and stressful situation".

NSW Police will hold a press conference at Parramatta at 10am on Friday.
