- Jacinda Ardern, New Zealand Prime Minister on shooting at a Mosque in Christchurch: This is one of New Zealand's darkest days. "And a second shot, I ran", the worshipper said.

Scared hostage reports shooter held outside Papanui. There is no official confirmation on casualties. He said anybody who was thinking of going to a mosque anywhere in New Zealand on Friday should stay put. They are us. The person who has perpetuated this violence against us is not.

In one shooting, the shooter live-streamed the attack, but it will not be embedded here on Townhall for obvious reasons.

The video has quickly been shared on both Facebook and Twitter despite pleas not to spread it further from concerned users.

Earlier, an eyewitness told RNZ News that at least 15 police cars along with armed police were near the mosque. "Some are still inside and we have been calling but can't get hold of them", Ibrahim said. "They involve an active shooter and multiple fatalities".

Commissioner Bush said every police resource in the Canterbury region had been mobilised.
