Many people killed in mass shooting at mosque in New Zealand city of Christchurch: Witness


Several people were reported dead when a gunman opened fire at a crowded mosque in the New Zealand city of Christchurch, during afternoon prayers on Friday. Local media reported at least six people were dead and the South Island city was placed in lockdown as police hunted for an “active shooter.”

“A serious and evolving situation is occurring in Christchurch with an active shooter,” police said in a statement. “Police are responding with its full capability to manage the situation, but the risk environment remains extremely high.”

The Masjid al Noor was filled with worshippers, including members of the Bangladesh cricket team. One witness said he was praying in the Deans Ave mosque when he heard shooting and saw his wife lying dead on the footpath outside when he fled.  Read More
