Multiple fatalities were inflicted at two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch on Friday when at least one gunman opened fire on worshippers, police said.

Country's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has described the Christchurch mass shooting as "one of New Zealand's darkest days".

According to reporters, Mr. Tarrant claimed responsibility in a 37-page manifesto, portions of which were posted on Twitter.

Mr. Tarrant decries "mass immigration" as "white genocide" and says why he commits the attack.

"He had a big gun and a lot of bullets and he came through and started shooting like everyone in the mosque, like everywhere, and they have to smash the door and the glass from the window and from the small door to try and get out", he said.

"This is not who we are". Police said there are a number of causalities but did not specify how many. "It's a very serious and grave situation", Bush said.

Police officials did not immediately comment on whether the incident took place in the mosques or nearby.

The footage is from the helmet camera of a person carrying a semi-automatic weapon and shows the person approaching the main doors of the mosque, firing as he enters.

He said his friends who were at the other mosque in Linwood had called him saying the shooting occurred there at the same time.

"I saw people jumping over the back fence of the mosque into Oakward Close". People in the city are told to stay indoors. "We understand that there will be many anxious people but I can assure New Zealanders that Police is doing all it can to resolve this incident".

Stuff says Carl Pomare a manager for Naki Labour Hire was one of the first people on the scene. "I ran behind the mosque", he told TVNZ.

He told local news outlets: "I'm just heartbroken". Another incident reportedly happened at the Linwood mosque.

Police and ambulance staff help a wounded man from outside a mosque in central Christchurch, New Zealand, Friday, March 15. Nichols said he saw two injured people being carried out on stretchers past his automotive shop and that both people appeared to be alive. He said he was not a member of any organization, but had donated to and interacted with many nationalist groups, though he acted alone and no group ordered the attack. And a third active shooting is being reported outside Christchurch Hospital. It is the second most-populous city in New Zealand behind Auckland and Wellington.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of New Zealand. "On the left there were 10 plus people, some were dead".
