Live video of New Zealand 'shooter Brenton Tarrant' gunning down people in mosque

At least 49 people were killed and over 40 injured after gunmen opened fire in two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch Friday.

The coordinated and unprecedented attack that has shocked the usually peaceful nation.

The shooting happened al Noor mosque on Deans Avenue, and Linwood mosque on Linwood Avenue in Christchurch's city center.

A total of 48 patients, including young children with gunshot wounds, have been admitted to Christchurch hospital for treatment.

One gunman, Brenton Tarrant, live-streamed footage of his rampage, filmed with a head-mounted camera. The footage showed him firing indiscriminately at men and women from close range inside the Al-Noor mosque.

New Zealand Police Commissioner Mike Bush said four people have been taken into custody -- three men and one woman.

Bush said Tarrant has been charged with murder and will appear at the Christchurch court Saturday morning local time.

Tarrant appears to have described himself as an "ordinary white man" who "decided to take a stand".

In a 74-page manifesto, believed to have been written by Tarrant, he describes anti-immigrant motives, saying the victims were a "large group of invaders" who he says "seek to occupy my peoples lands and ethnically replace my own people (sic)".

He said he was inspired by Norwegian shooter Anders Breivik.

The manifesto, posted online, features a series of questions and answers, and opens with one asking: "Who are you?"

The answer says: "Just a ordinary White man, 28 years old. Born in Australia to a working class, low income family.

"My parents are of Scottish, Irish and English stock. I had a regular childhood, without any great issues. I had little interest in education during my schooling, barely achieving a passing grade."

He adds: "I am just a regular White man, from a regular family. Who decided to take a stand to ensure a future for my people."

He describes himself as "a private and mostly introverted person" and admits he is racist, adding that he is an "Eco-fascist by nature".

He said New Zealand was not the original choice for an attack, saying he only came to the country temporarily to plan and train.

On his planning for the attack, he wrote: "I begun planning an attack roughly two years in advance and an attack at the location in Christchurch three months in advance."

Answering whether he supports Brexit, he wrote: "Yes, though not for an official policy made. The truth is that eventually people must face the fact that it wasn't a damn thing to do with the economy.

"That it was the British people firing back at mass immigration, cultural displacement and globalism, and that's a great and wonderful thing."

An archive of a Facebook page thought to belong to Tarrant contained dozens of posts in the last week about multiculturalism in Europe, with several referring directly to the UK.

Tarrant reportedly worked as a personal trainer at Big River Gym in the northern New South Wales city of Grafton.
