Mildura shooting statement

SSAA Victoria was shocked and deeply saddened by reports of a shooting yesterday involving SSAA Mildura President Paul Cohrs.

According to the media and what we have learned, Paul’s brother Ray and his mother Bette were murdered, and Paul is in hospital with a gunshot wound.

We are waiting for the police investigation to be completed to understand the full circumstances of the events that have occurred. We have received conflicting stories.

If the allegations are true, this act is completely out of character with the person we know. Paul has been a respected and valued member of SSAA Victoria and his work to develop the Mildura range has provided an excellent facility.

We also are horrified by these actions and hope the police investigation results in solace for the Cohrs family. We cannot imagine the grief they must be suffering.
