A murder-suicide victim has been identified as a former Albury worker.
Chris Walters, 32, was shot by Paul Carey, 35, in Devonport in Tasmania on Saturday morning.
Carey also shot a woman in front of her children before turning the gun on himself.
Mr Walters had moved to Albury in March for work and took a job for an earthmoving company.
In a Facebook post when he moved, the 32-year-old said he "needed a change of scenery".
He returned to his home state last month and recently welcomed a child.
The mother of that child is believed to be the woman who was also shot.
Social media posts made by Carey indicated complicated relationships between those involved in the shooting.
The shooter recently wrote the woman "isn't talking to me because of that one person who has come between us and it's not right".

Police are searching for the source of an illegal Winchester shotgun Carey acquired in the past three months which was used in the shooting.
