    One of the victims of a fatal family harm incident in Christchurch had been suffering from a serious medical issue

    One of the victims of a fatal family harm incident in Christchurch had been suffering from a serious medical issue


    Police were called to a house on Wairakei Road in Burnside just after four this morning.

    They found the bodies of an elderly man and woman in the bedroom - as well as four handguns.

    Canterbury District Commander Superintendent John Price says they received a 111 call from someone at the address saying they had used a firearm.

    But he says one occupant was receiving regular medical care - which had increased over the last few days.
