A gunman wielding an automatic rifle opened fire on a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, approximately ten minutes after approximately 300 people began afternoon prayers.

At least nine people have been killed with dozens injured, while eyewitnesses report “there was blood everywhere,” according to Stuff.co.nz and Radio NZ.

Another eyewitness who declined to give his name said there were “bodies all over me,” adding that the gunman emptied at least two magazines into the crowd.

The shooter was described as “white skinned, blonde, quite short and wearing a helmet and a bulletproof vest.” according to witness Ahmad Al-Mahmoud, 37, who broke a window in a door to escape from the mosque.

According to journalist Nick Monroe, the shooter – Twitter user “Brenton Tarrant” who joined in February posted his intention to shoot up the mosque on social media, then livestreamed the shooting.

The gunman posted photos of his shooting gear on Twitter prior to the shooting.

Approximately 20 armed police are clearing buildings nearby, while all schools in the area have been placed into lockdown. No students will be released until the police “have advised us that the lockdown is over and it is safe to do so.”

The Christchurch hospital emergency ward has been cleared out and hospital staff are expecting 40 – 50 injured people.

Of note, gun ownership in New Zealand is categorized as “restrictive” – as civilians are not allowed to possess handguns, military-style semi-automatic weapons or fully automatic weapons without a permit and a relevant firearm license endorsement.

    I definitely believe this person is a nut. But, I don’t believe he was “radicalized” by Candace Owens.

      It looks to me like revenge for the lives the Muslims have murdered.

    Humans have been committing “hate” crimes since Cain killed Abel. It will stop when only one human is left on earth.

        I wouldn’t say they started millions of years ago, but certainly before Christ was born. 😀

      Glad to see someone with the balls to say the obvious. They are a cult of death, murdering people on a regular basis in the most barbaric ways. I’m surprised this hasn’t happened before now and won’t be surprised to see more of it. Muslims get away with murder on a daily basis. Generally when you’re up against heartless, soul-less demons like Muslims, the only way to defeat them is to go at them the same way they go at everyone else on the planet. Muslims only understand violence. They definitely had this coming.

        What you say is true, however, it’s the Illuminati (NWO Jews) that are instigating all the hate crimes that we see today. Our Congress is in their pocket and Dems, in particular, do whatever they say to do – like siding with the enemies of America against the people of America.

      You’re absolutely right, Dennis. Their religion teaches them to hate and murder anyone who isn’t a Muslim. They torture women and children before they murder them. They even murder their own women and children – supposedly “honor” killings. BS!!
