What we know so far
WA Police Assistant Commissioner Brad Royce said a family sending their 17-year-old to a party should not have to face such a devastating outcome.
‘The people responsible for this were cowards. There was a number of them and one boy,’ he told reporters.
Mr. Royce said it was becoming common for house parties advertised on social media to become out of control and attract violence.
‘Once you’re on social media the party expands, the numbers expand,’ he said.
‘The people managing the party aren’t always prepared for those numbers and have to shut things down. And a lot of the trouble occurs outside the party.’
