The police apprehended him, and he was treated for burns on his back and buttocks. After the fire, three bodies were discovered in the home. It appeared that the owners, David and Sally Martin, had been killed before the rampage, and the third victim was killed sometime during the negotiations with the police.
On that one deadly day, Bryant had killed 35 people, including a woman and her two young children, and left another 19 injured. Australians were shocked and horrified by the crime and many fought to make changes in the country’s gun laws. Bryant was later tried and convicted; he received 35 life sentences. He is currently housed at Tasmania’s Risdon Prison, where he has attempted suicide six times during his incarceration.
