saying so just to go back on that second shooting has that now been confirmed that a second mos is not the if it is they had thing and if you can shooting at you can walk across kind is beyond the seat ok and what are the casualty figures from the second shooting at the stage figures are being released we just know that multiple people and and we do know that the we've understood their fatalities but images haven't released the challenge that really is and i'm holding the story and that gun mean that on the in the city and the first shooting that took place at the new the mosque we're hearing of multiple injuries there. do you have any latest figures . as a sign our latest figures you know nobody wants to scrambling around trying to. actually deal with the wounded right now find the gunmen and know if it could have been related to very much because of all the voice telling us go ahead
11:33 am
yeah i just at the hospital they are multiple casualties being brought in we just don't know that that's because he's is it's still an active shooter situation at the allure mosque or has the shooter been apprehended and are you hearing whether there was more than one shooter yet we understand nothing has been confirmed but we understand it was more than one shooter that no one has been at perceived that we are aware of so that's why it is that a lot down situation even being told to stay harmed and keep the door was locked and not go out on the streets i don't know if you can just put this into context for us and tell us whether there had been any warnings that this particular mosque or mosque in the city would be targets. well not only crushed to know it is such a peaceful city i will ask them all must die i've even had a single thought about it being at risk o. people not being cited for these being absolutely no warning it's come completely
11:34 am
out of no even one is stunned and shocked i mean people are in tears and breaking down no one quite knows what to do with themselves are you hearing anything about the shooter himself or themselves where they're from so you think about them. you know we have heard that a man who took and people who that he skank for them all she had the description that di had of the gunman so he was a white man i did in his thirty's or forty's and wearing a uniform but they had been understood. what uniform alone and why is a fan and some of those i see he had a lot of magazines stripped with that so we know about this particular one gun then it sounds to be could be more and driton now what can you tell us about the situation around the mosque presumably as you're saying it's a completely closed off and the security must be extremely tight. yet it is completely shut off through trade all area the roads are blocked off the police
11:35 am
treated a little at the end of things. to training in crime today but they are more of a mystery than normal but everything is still closed and cordoned off people are being helped to stay home and not go out while the city is in lockdown all right rachel das we thank you very much for giving us that update on a developing story thank you so we've been hearing form more witnesses let's listen can you tell us what you've been hearing he was whiting at the cordon on things evan you. heard this stage i don't know where my wife is she was in the ladies' room. after the shooting i tried to go in there to see where there was no ladies in there. i don't know where the ladies were shorter not. the police advised me to quickly get

11:37 am
woman tina i realised that it was really serious and you know a couple of people there say to me that you are a whole chain you could pick it out now so i tried to get out in the push myself the big where my car was parked in i was there behind the car and then from there i was hearing there to a shooting after a shooting of the shooting it went on. six minute or more in. i could hear screaming and the crying and. saw some people you know or drop dead. some people were running away i was in the room. could not go in also i didn't want to because i was afraid what was going to happen to the ladies what was going to be going to a wife so i stayed there were like really short he did his i'm
11:38 am
a circle inside the mosque in he didn't come in the wake of the ways he could have got me. that is an absolutely terrifying account i'm so sorry for everything that you've gone through this afternoon thank you so much for. for your sympathy so what have police been telling you here on the court and about your family inside the mosque are you getting any information about what's happening must be terrifying about what happened you know when some stayed in after about ten minutes i was still in the back in the when i thought that probably the shorter has left then i pushed myself to get inside the mosque in it was unbelievable i saw in the main the room on the right inside there were plenty plus people some of them were dead some of them were. screaming on the left inside. ten plus people
11:39 am
some of them were day and some of them were screaming in there asking me is there any ambulance and the way i said you know be patient in ice so on the flu the bullet shells small mini hundreds hundreds of in then. you know on one maybe a guy was trying to. run out and he was shot he was there there i saw in a from the holy a nerd to the room i was in a guy was trying to come in that room and he was shot from the back he was there there and also a guy who was you know probably trying to get into the ladies room and his this did what it is there. anything in at the big also you know. a couple of people were drop dead in their you know police came and told me you know
11:40 am
must get out in. the graded me to come. in and now here i am so while all this was happening you were whiting in a back room in a wheelchair these terrible sounds and things carrying us being so frightening. i was not in the back room i was you know back of the mosque in the in the car just behind make my car was parked in. here it was. frightening but probably you know my feeling was there weren't you know what would have been would happen i was not frightened but i was really worried about what was happening to other people thank you so much for your ok so this is what we know about the situation in the new zealand city of christ church so far there has been a shooting. at a second mosque about after an earlier attack that according to local media has
11:41 am
left several people dead many injured people from the first shooting at the new the mosque have been taken to nearby hospitals witnesses have described seeing a man and dressed in black entering the mosque before dozens of sauce were fired and people ran out in terror so once again gunshots have been heard near the a newer mosque in christ church a new zealand police are warning off a critical incidence eyewitnesses also reporting people running for their lives we can speak to janine richmond she's a witness to what happened in christchurch new the mosque janine thanks for speaking to us can you tell us what you saw. i didn't actually see anything we just we just two doors away from them up here in the lift and we
11:42 am
just heard the gunshot stashing wasn't even aware of machine gun shots and they kept going quite rapid. and then we realized that they were gunshots sort of a date if it hadn't. got me to read one one one i'm a true faith. and just and that the thing minutes after that. we were put into a stance try to live with this if they put their face. still in the naplan of that place. but i didn't exclude. all right so i understand that then can you tell us describe the scene around the mosque and the area around the mosque. because we're down a long driveway i didn't actually see anything happen when the shooting actually
11:43 am
happened i just fear that we are not aware of the fingers coming down the drive where i sit in the properties important isn't a lot grounds for that thought that dogs and as well. i think the shooter has actually a scratch a track knife that sounds hamel. so that's why we're still here and. i think most a question should actually end up going on and what more are police telling you about the lockdown and how long dos situation will last and what advice are you getting from police. not ok we haven't seen the place probably for about an hour now at one point they decided to get in their car and because they clear the roads and they left kind they can to not we couldn't we had to come back in here and stay in the rooms that away from the windows. so we haven't had any contact
11:44 am
with them for about an hour now. so we're hoping to hear from them and be able to to lave. because this if you siren still going past but apart from it is pretty quiet cars will go right over cars down are you were you so that i think a situation has occurred in christchurch. tosha raising various types a little while raising. we certainly was not something we would expect to happen here. but they were not. properly what might be an act of terrorism. there is very very frightening and try to be unexpected. and what is the reaction from from your from your neighbors and from your friends from people around you what are they telling you. we haven't seen tonight is because we're not allowed to go near the windows or
11:45 am
a fine but we've had lots and lots of fun because everyone has heard about it once very worried because. everybody's safety and just amazed it was hip and i think this news report coming on today run at four o'clock which we can't because we don't have a to be here and that's coming from the prime minister about that time as well. all right jeanine richmond we thank you very much for speaking to us giving us your side of the story from christ church in new zealand where as we're reporting there has been a active gunmen who has gone into a mosque in christ church and he has opened fire on worshipers witnesses are saying there have been several casualties inside the mosque but police are warning people to avoid the area and they have placed the area on lockdown as well the hospital as well as the city's schools have been placed on
