Shooting at Christchurch Mosque

gunman has reportedly opened fire in the Christchurch Mosque near Hagley Park.

The former president of the Muslim Association of Canterbury Mohammed Jama said a man with a gun went into the mosque about 1.40pm on Friday.

He saw about four people injured and two people lying on the ground. He did not know if they were alive or dead.

A Stuff photographer said he could see three seriously injured people on the doorstep of the mosque.

In a statement, police said they were responding to reports of shots fired in central Christchurch.

Police urged anyone in central Christchurch to stay indoors and report any suspicious behaviour immediately to 111.

So you managed to slide away from the crime scene, laughing at the cops going the other way! Very snecky.

This is just down the road from my work. It's not everyday you go to turn left only to be confronted by a man with a M4 telling you to go the other way as quickly as possible.

I may have slightly increased level of adrenaline in my system at the moment. There were about 4 cop cars closing the road and most of the officers had weapons raised in the direction I had intended to turn. 2 more plus the unmarked Armed defenders raced in while I was at the lights. And I saw 5 more vehicles heading full bore in as I was heading out. So I knew something bad was going down.

The team were attending a prayer session at the mosque and most have made their way to safety, with one still unaccounted for, according to ChCh radio.

That's reasonably well away from it so he should be ok.

As in without specifis
No. There are specifics about how many wounded have turned up in accident and emegency. I’m just not putting out a friend of a friends report that is at odds with the official confirmed wounded at 6.

The School's climate strike is on today, kids in town for that :(

Friday is a major day of prayer at the mosques, similar to christian's Sunday service. If the numbers being bandied around are close then it's more than just a bloke going nuts with a .22.

The school protest has been canceled and cleared I think.

I'm about to leave for the west coast. Quite glad to be getting out of it!

It's not hard to get guns in NZ, although I am surprised it is an semi-automatic which is what it sounds like.
