Jacinda Ardern's office received manifesto from Christchurch shooter minutes before attack

New Zealand PM Says Got'Manifesto From Gunman'9 Minutes Before Attack

"While work is being done as to the chain of events that led to both the holding of this gun license and the possession of these weapons, I can tell you one thing right now: Our gun laws will change", she said at a news conference on Saturday.

Tarrant was arrested in a vehicle, which police said was carrying improvised explosive devices, 36 minutes after they were first called.

Brenton Harrison Tarrant, 28, has been charged with murder in relation to the massacre on Friday, in which 49 people were killed and 42 injured.

New Zealanders flocked to memorial sites to lay flowers and mourn the victims of the twin mosque massacres Sunday, March 17 as testimony emerged of epic heroism and harrowing suffering in the gun attack that has claimed 50 lives. A fourth person who was apprehended but has since been released as he "was a member of the public who was in possession of a firearm, but with the intention of assisting police".

Pacific Islands Forum Chair and president of Nauru Baron Waqa expressed his "deepest condolences" to the people and government of New Zealand on what he called a sad day for Christchurch and a sad day for the region.

The Pacific Music Awards organisation in New Zealand also expressed its shock and solidarity over the shootings.

She said: "I was one of more than 30 recipients of a manifesto that was mailed out nine minutes before the attack took place".

Greenhill described "acts of heroism" and "selflessness" by the people attacked on Friday afternoon, including one man who was killed trying to disarm a gunman at the second mosque.

A student, who asked not to be identified, said a friend had been killed.

Thirty-four people were in Christchurch Hospital, with 12 in intensive care, while one child was moved to a dedicated children's hospital in Auckland.

Indonesian-born aeronautical engineer Lilik Abdul Hamid and a refugee from Afghanistan, Daoud Nabi, were among the victims. She said her office sent it to parliamentary security two minutes after getting it.

Aziz said: "He gets into his auto and I just got the gun and threw it on his window like an arrow and blasted his window".

Facebook, Twitter and Google scrambled to take down the gunman's video, which was widely available on social media for hours after the bloodbath.

Ardern said the suspect was a licensed gun owner who bought the five guns used in the crimes legally.

There are an estimated 1.5 million firearms in New Zealand, which has a population of only 5 million, but it has had low levels of gun violence.

At least one of the weapons used by Tarrant was reportedly an AR-15 - the same semi-automatic rifle used in a number of mass shootings in the United States, including the 2012 Sandy Hook school killings in CT.

New Zealand tightened its gun laws to restrict access to semi-automatic rifles in 1992, two years after a mentally ill man shot dead 13 people in the southern town of Aramoana.
