27+ Killed In New Zealand Mass Shooting, Attacker Livestreamed Shooting

An attack at a New Zealand mosque has left dozens dead.

Christchurch, New Zealand - At least one gunman has opened fire at the Masjid Al Noor Mosque at around 1:14 p.m. local time in an apparent terrorist attack.

Local media are reporting at least 27 dead with many more wounded. A witness has said that the gunman spent 20 minutes going from room to room and killing people, including children.

There was then a second shooting at another mosque, possibly committed by the same gunman.

A bomb has been located in a car in the area.

One gunman is in custody, but it's unknown if there are additional suspects.

The gunman who identified himself as 28-year-old Brenton Tarrant uploaded a video online of the shooting while murdering people, along with a 74 page manifesto.

The unconfirmed gunman's social media account posted an image of his semi-automatic rifle before the attack.

The unconfirmed shooter's manifesto makes it appear he is obsessed with "white genocide," a white nationalist conspiracy theory.

Our thoughts and prayers for the victims and their families. One wonders how one person can allow hate to perpetuate his life that he feels he has to commit such a terrible deed as this.

I have 1st hand news about these terrorist attacks on these Mosques. As of this morning there were 49 deaths. There were two car bombs and possible shootings as there was a large catch of weapons and ammo. The last I heard was there were 4 terrorists with only 1 captured

Fragile white ego rears its ugly, mass-shooting head again. Just another feather in the cap of a people who see their human crime karma throughout time starting to kick back.

Good luck.

This guy is sick. Pure evil. I saw the livestream clip where he had some sort of camera on his head while he just went in blasting. I feel for the victims and their families. Nothing like this should ever have to happen. He needs to die.

You're probably right, if you look at the number of killings throughout history. I think that has changed in current times. The fact is every race is capable of genocide.
