Anti-Muslim Terrorist Attack in... NZ?

It appears we have an active shooter at mosques in Christchurch, who has killed several people.

I'll keep updating as more is known.

Not only is the shooter still at large, current reports have shots at Christchurch Hospital, where the injured are being taken.

Crikey, the site of the mosque at the centre of the attack is next to Hagley Park.

I hope the cricket's ok for tomorrow.

Update says that the shooting was with an automatic weapon (very rare in NZ) and went on for at least several minutes. The city is fairly well locked down everywhere.

Cop chopper is looking for the perp now - still at large.

Update saying there were 2-300 people in the mosque at prayer, with possibly most of them at least injured.

Truly bizarre, this kind of stuff doesn't happen here.

But if it was going to, it was going to be in Christchurch.

Certainly a lot of ambulances and stretchers going into Christchurch Hospital.

Going by the calmness of the people there I'd say the hospital is safe.

ABC: Christchurch mosque shooting sees armed police deployed and schools in lockdown; up to a dozen injured

BBC: New Zealand mosque shooting: Active shooter reported at Christchurch mosque

CNN: Reported mass shooting at mosque in New Zealand city of Christchurch

What we know so far:

Quote:
At 1:40pm a gunman entered the Masjid Al Noor Mosque in central Christchurch and opened fire
There are reports of casualties with local media are reporting at least six dead, though police have not confirmed the number of those injured or dead.
This is an active shooter situation, with police responding to more gunshots fired at other locations across the city.
The city remains under lockdown, with central Christchurch evacuated, children who were participating in the climate strikes were evacuated, schools are under lockdown.
Police have confirmed to the Guardian that there is a bomb in a car that has crashed on Strickland Street in the city. People are being evacuated from the area.
Police are entering properties in Deyell Crescent, they are telling evacuees “you don’t want to know what is happening”.
Prime minister Jacinda Ardern cancelled all her afternoon activities and is set to address media at 4pm local time (in about half an hour).
source, just now.

I don't know anything about the religious situation in New Zealand. Are there many people there who hate Muslims and want to kill them? If so, are the haters Christians or Jewish, or what?

Not really to speak of.

We are one of the most non religious country's in the world

We have racists like every where. But they all tend to get sheepish when called on it

Hard to tell - the cops have released very little information, but the numbers going to the hospital don't seem to be in the dozens so far.

I heard 20-30 on the ground.

None of the above, usually. We're largely religious-mania free.

Clearly a planned attack at the worst time.

Early reports said automatic. That hasn't been repeated as far as I can see. It would be VERY unusual if that were the case. I think it's far more likely to be semi-auto, but nothing has been confirmed yet.

The #1 reporter at the hospital reckons 20-25 ambulances have arrived at hospital and none in the past half hour or so.

Casualties may hopefully have been overstated.

Was wearing camo gear... (David Gray have any living relatives?)

From Wikipedia...

The main Christian denominations are, by number of adherents, Roman Catholicism (12.6%), Anglicanism (11.8%), Presbyterianism (8.5%) and "Christian not further defined" (i.e. people identifying as Christian but not stating the denomination, 5.5%). The Māori-based Ringatū and Rātana religions (1.4%) are also Christian in origin. Immigration and demographic change in recent decades has contributed to the growth of minority religions, such as Hinduism (2.1%), Buddhism (1.5%), Islam (1.2%) and Sikhism (0.5%). The Auckland Region exhibited the greatest religious diversity.

So, it's 49% Christian and 1.2% Islam.

The gunman shot up one mosque, and then another a few minutes later. The hospital was placed on lockdown but as yet officials haven't said anything about any shooting there, or anywhere else except the two mosques. The hospital lockdown was precautionary perhaps.
