Details are still unfolding but it looks like a white nationalist from 8chan committed a mass shooting as a mosque, with many bodies visible
doesn't look like attacker's identity or motive are in doubt, already ID'd as 'Brenton Tarrant', he was posting a manifesto about 'population replacement' and live streamed the shooting on facebook
I'm sure as hell not going to link to any of that inhuman stuff, but suffice to say looked like it was really, really bad, a mass casualty event

Truly horrendous. I saw that elsewhere online people had posted his video. It's stuff like that that display the absolute fragility of human life.

Its not clear if the guy has been stopped yet. There are reports of a second shooting at another mosque, but no confirmation on that yet and 'second shooting' reports often turn out to be confusion. But this guy looked like he was prepared for more than one target

In his video, he drove off to another location (another Mosque, I believe) and opened fire.

> A second shooting has occurred at a mosque in suburb of Linwood
>There are reports of a third active shooting unfolding outside Christchurch Hospital.
>The Guardian is reporting police as saying there is a bomb on Strickland Street in Christchurch.

city is in lockdown. They need to be swarming with SWAT and they need to be doing it an hour ago
if the second mosque is as bad as the first we could be looking at 50-100 dead
