    2 mass shootings reported at mosques; many killed

    2 mass shootings reported at mosques in New Zealand; many killed, witness says

    by The Associated Press, Updated: 9 minutes ago


    MARK BAKER / AP

    WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — A witness says many people have been killed in a mass shooting at a mosque in the New Zealand city of Christchurch. A second shooting was reported at another Christchuch mosque shortly afterward.

    Police did not describe the scale of the Friday shootings but urged people in central Christchurch to stay indoors.

    “A serious and evolving situation is occurring in Christchurch with an active shooter,” Police Commissioner Mike Bush said in a statement.

    “The risk environment remains extremely high.

    Police recommend that residents across Christchurch remain off the streets and indoors until further notice.”


    Armed police were deployed after the first shooting, about 1:40 p.m. local time on Friday. All Christchurch schools were placed in lockdown.

    Television New Zealand showed pictures of multiple ambulances arriving at Christchurch Hospital, and said Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has canceled all engagements.


    Radio New Zealand reported that shots were fired at a mosque near Hagley Park where hundreds of people were praying. It said an eyewitness saw a man wearing a helmet and glasses and a military-style jacket open fire inside the mosque. One person saw four people lying on the ground and said “there was blood everywhere,” RNZ reported.

    Witness Len Peneha said he saw a man dressed in black enter the Masjid Al Noor mosque in central Christchurch about 1:45 p.m. and then heard dozens of shots, followed by people running from the mosque in terror.

    Peneha, who has lived next door to the mosque for about five years, said the gunman ran out of the mosque, dropped what appeared to be a semiautomatic weapon in Peneha’s driveway, and fled.

    Peneha said he went into the mosque to try and help.

    “I saw dead people everywhere. There were three in the hallway, at the door leading into the mosque, and people inside the mosque,” he said.

    “It’s unbelievable, nutty. I don’t understand how anyone could do this to these people, to anyone. It’s ridiculous.”


    He said the gunman was white and was wearing a helmet with some kind of device on top, giving him a military-type appearance.

    The New Zealand Herald reported there was a second shooting at the Linwood Masjid Mosque.

    Mark Nichols told the Herald that he heard about five gunshots and that a Friday prayer goer returned fire with a rifle or shotgun. Nichols said that he saw two injured people being carried out on stretchers past his automotive shop and that both people appeared to be alive.

    New Zealand historically has had only a handful of mass-shooting events.

    Explosive devices were attached to vehicles

    New Zealand police commissioner Mike Bush told reporters that there were multiple improved explosive devices attached to vehicles as part of the attack.
    Bush said these had been "made safe by the defense force."
    "This goes to the seriousness of the situation," he said.
    He said that police were not assuming the situation was limited to Christchurch at this stage.

    Shooter believed to be an "Australian national": TVNZ

    TVNZ journalist Anna Burns-Francis told CNN at least one of the shooters is believed to be an Australian national.
    The journalist said that emergency services from across New Zealand have been sent to Christchurch to assist in the growing emergency situation.
    She said TVNZ has confirmed nine deaths already although there could be many more in the two attacks. Police have not given any official numbers as yet but said it is "significant."
    "This is a deeply unsettling, disturbing attack, we've never witnessed anything like this before in New Zealand," she said.
    CNN has been unable to verify the nationality of the gunmen or a possible death toll.

      At least 40 dead in New Zealand mosque shootings

      At least 40 people were killed Friday in two separate mosque shootings in Christchurch, New Zealand. The attacks prompted a major police response and four suspects were arrested. The motive was not immediately known but one of the gunmen apparently live-streamed the killings and earlier published a 74-page anti-immigrant manifesto, cops said.
