The video linked above has surfaced showing a man entering a Muslim mosque in Christ Church, New Zealand and killing an estimated two dozen worshipers with a rifle. The entire incident was livestreamed by the perpetrator, whose identity has been confirmed as 28 year old Brenton Tarrant, an Australian resident of New South Wales. New Zealand police have confirmed they have arrested three men, including the shooter, and one woman connected to the shooting, as reported by Nine News Queensland.
There have been two shooting incidents: one at the Al Noor Mosque next to Hagley Park, and another at the Linwood Mosque in the suburb of Linwood. New Zealand police have described the attack as “very well planned,” recovering multiple Improvised Explosive Devices from the mosques, as well as the vehicle Tarrant was driving.
The shooter posted his plans, along with his personal manifesto, to 8Chan before beginning the massacre.
He uploaded his manifesto, titled “The Great Replacement,” a reference to the Kalergi Plan. In the manifesto, which first circulated on 8Chan’s /pol/ board, the shooter identifies himself as an “eco-fascist,” and explains his plans to ignite a civil war in the United States through his actions defending white Europeans from “invaders.” This is a developing story, stay tuned for updates as they become available.
