At least 50 gunshots were heard around two mosques in Christchurch as a man identified as Brenton Tarrant and several others launched an attack. Police confirmed that he had now been taken into custody.

Harrowing footage shows him taking a gun from the back of his car which is parked around the corner from the Al Noor Mosque.

Identifying himself on Twitter as he broadcast the attack, he then approached the mosque, walking past a couple of people on the road before raising his gun and starting to shoot.

He then walks through the mosque shooting at random as people huddle in the corners of building before being shot again at point blank range.

Tarrant then leaves the mosque, shooting at a woman who is in the grounds of the place of worship.

The Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison confirmed that he was a citizen of his country and described him as an ‘extremist, right-wing, violent terrorist.’

He said: ‘We stand here and condemn, absolutely the attack that occurred today by an extremist, right-wing, violent terrorist.

Mr Scott confirmed media reports that the gunman who mowed down worshippers in the main mosque in the southern New Zealand city of Christchurch was an Australian-born citizen.

New Zealand police said they had detained three men and one woman after attacks on two Christchurch mosques, but they have not provided their identities.
