CHRISTCHURCH, NEW ZEALAND (ABC NEWS) – At least 49 people were killed and dozens more injured in mass shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, Friday.
The shootings, carried out by at least one gunman, were categorized as a terrorist attack.
“It’s something that we never expected to have happen here,” Christchurch MP Gerry Brownlee told “Good Morning America.” “We’re a relatively small population, and while we are ethnically quite diverse, we live very peaceable lives. And this, as many have seen, has shattered our innocence.”
Brownlee, who said he lives a short distance from one of the shooting sites, said, “Almost everyone will know someone or have a connection with the families of someone who has been either killed or seriously wounded today.”
“This is one of New Zealand’s darkest days,” New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said in a press conference Friday.
