I just saw this on breaking news. Not much being reported here at the moment. Just that there have been multiple deaths at a mosque.

CNN is breaking now also. Isn't Kismet in that general area? Hope all is well with her. The city of Christchurch and the schools are on lock down as it's being reported here.

What a shocker.  New Zealand is such a tolerant country, doesn't deserve this.

So far 9 fatalities, 2 Mosques, 1 shooter arrested. And all schools and hospitals are on lock down. 

It is simply unbelievable.

Sounds like they suspect multiple shooters, which would be very different scenario to a lone lunatic.

CNN is saying the same thing. One is in custody and they think there may be others.

They are playing it safe, but it looks like their where two simultaneous incidents, which, if true, would suggest at least 2 shooters.

and then

It sounds coordinated. Murdering unarmed people while they worship is as disgusting when Muslims are targeted as it is when the dead are of any other faith.   The TV report I just saw said 9 dead between two mosques.   One in custody but looking for more.

It’s actually looking more like a lone gun man. He live streamed the incident to Facebook. Apparently alongside some white genocide bull**** rambling. And then he killed kids. Scumbag.

Four people are in custody - three men and one woman.

A number of bombs were attached to cars, says police commissioner.

Extraordinary that this should happen in NZ.  The earthquakes killed more, but that is much harder to accept.

Fiji news is reporting 27 dead. I saw the video the shooter made as he drove to the mosque on Australian news. It showed his face and stopped as he approached the door. The SOB. He had weapons all over the passenger side floor as well as in the trunk with writing all over them. This link has a picture inside his car but not of him. I'd rather not.

CNN is reporting 9 and that one of the persons in custody is believed to be an Australian national.

New Zealand's Port Arthur. I don't know what gun control measures are in place there.

Sorry to hear that. 

This is indeed horrifying, do we know if the deceased is 9 or 40? There are some wild numbers getting around

This is what talk about "we are war with Islam" leads to. Of regarding all "Mooslims" as one great mass of evil, just waiting to rape pretty white girls.
