New Zealand Shooter Planned to Continue Attack When Police Caught Him - PM

New Zealand,New Zealand Massacre,Mass Shooting

Tarrant, 28, was handcuffed and wearing a white prison jumpsuit when he quietly walked into the courtroom.

The victim can not be named by order of the court.

In signs police say show a well-planned attack, army personnel were also called in to dismantle explosive devices found in a stopped vehicle and officers were on Friday evening searching a house in Dunedin, 360 kilometres away, clearing nearby homes for safety.

Gray's speculation was backed up by a rambling, hate-filled, manifesto Tarrant posted to social media ahead of the Christchurch killings.

Tarrant was one of three people arrested in connection with the shootings. Worshippers, possibly dead or wounded, lay on the floor, the video showed. Reuters was unable to confirm the authenticity of the footage.

The prime minister continued by adding that the charged individual was in custody 36 minutes after the police received the first call about the incident. A spokesman said the email didn't describe the specific incident and there was "nothing in the content or timing that would have been able to prevent the attack".

Authorities said 49 people were murdered in the attack.

A 1997 police review of gun laws called for such a ban, but attempts to update the Arms Act since 1992 have stalled in parliament.

Ardern said the main suspect was a licensed gun owner who used five weapons during his rampage, including two semi-automatic weapons and two shotguns.

Australia and New Zealand's leaders have come together to condemn this week's mass shooting in two Christchurch mosques, calling it "an attack against all of us". She asserted that New Zealand "will not and can not be shaken" by this attack.

There was a heavy police presence at the hospital where families of the more than 40 wounded had gathered.

"Thirty-nine people remain in hospital and 11 in ICU [intensive care units]". Funerals were planned on Saturday for some of the victims, several of whom were born overseas.

"I hadn't intended for anybody other than the people at Medina Mosque to know about this", Mr Graystone said.


New Zealand's gun laws are expected to be overhauled in the wake of Friday's mass shooting in Christchurch.

Tarrant is believed to be the author of a 74-age manifesto posted online before the attacks occurred. Ardern said she had spoken to Trump, who had asked how he could help.

Four New Zealand women hugged each other outside the cordon.

I have spoken this evening to the mayor of Christchurch and I intend to speak this evening to the Imam.

The Anglican Diocese of Polynesia extended its "deepest sympathies to the Muslim community as you have once again, been a victim of this senseless act of violence resulting in the loss of life".

Political across Asia and the Middle East voiced concern over the targeting of Muslims.

"This attack has been an enormous shock for all New Zealanders, and I am aware that there is a real sense of fear and concern for personal safety, particularly among our Muslim communities", New Zealand police commissioner Mike Bush said.

"He had a big gun".

Local Muslims attend Friday prayers at the Windsor Mosque. The staff member monitoring the accounts sent it to parliamentary services as soon as they saw it, who sent it to police, the spokesman said.

Clarke Jones, a terrorism expert at Australia National University, says it was "inevitable" that this sort of attack was to take place.

Shaik said the last he heard, his uncle was in surgery and his condition was critical.

"This is a sad day for the Muslim population and all residents of New Zealand", he said in a statement.
