Witness Says Many Dead in New Zealand Mosque Shooting

The Bangladesh cricket team escaped the Christchurch Mosque where a shooting incident took place on Friday afternoon.

"Police are responding with its full capability to manage the situation, but the risk environment remains extremely high", they tweeted.

About 20 armed police are clearing buildings in the suburb of Linwood and police are warning people to stay indoors and to report any suspicious behaviour.

New Zealand Police Commissioner Mike Bush said there was a "serious and evolving situation" involving an active shooter in Christchurch just before 3 p.m. local time.

"They were just outside the mosque about to get off from the bus and go into the mosque when they heard shooting and a lot of people running out and they saw someone wounded in front of them".

Earlier, he helped three people who had been shot at the mosque.

"They ran back through Hagley Park back to the Oval", he tweeted.
