right now at 11:00, terror in new zealand. one of the safest countries in the world, now dealing with immeasurable tragedy. 49 people killed at mosques in what is now new zealand's worst mass shooting ever. thanks so much for joining us this midday. >> marcus and laura are both off. the prime minister is calling it one of new zealand's darkest days. the terror unfolded around 1:30 friday afternoon local time in christchurch. that's the largest city on new zealand's southern island. a man was arrested and charged with murder in what appeared to be a carefully planned terrorist
attack. the last time new zealand saw a mass shooting was 1990. nbc's bill neely rorlts. >> reporter: a stream of wounded begin coming into the hospital. armed police still hunting for gunman still unsure if the attacks are over. and everywhere dazed survivors who had been through unimaginable horror. this man saw the killer. >> he had helmet and giving the glasses and he dressed of the military and he is gun, machine gun of the -- >> reporter: minutes after the shooting, police were filmed arresting a man. they held two other armed men and a woman and found two explosive devices attached to cars. >> so far, one person, a male in his late 20s, had been charged with murder. >> reporter: police say he was not on any new zealand terror watch list. they say the man streamed his
massacre live from a body camera. an enleft a long anti-immigrant document. >> this is one of new zealand's darkest days. clearly, what has happened here is an extraordinary and unprecedented act of violence. >> reporter: police are advising new zealanders to avoid all mosques after an attack that stunned this normally peaceful country. police sources told our partners at australia's channel 7 that the killer is 28-year-old brenton parent and that he calmly reloaded the weapon in the massacre. they're raiding homes right now and investigating a threat to the islamic community. the killer posted on facebook before the attack. it is a terrible irony that many of those killed were refugees from war zones seeking peace in what was one of the world's safest countries. bill neely, nbc news, london.
horrified people around the world seen the video of that attack that the gunman streamed live on facebook. facebook quickly took it down and scrambling to make sure that the video stays off its site. scott mcgrew, facebook had a horribly miserable week. >> horrible week. "the new york times" columnist called it biblically and compared it to the story of job and before what happened with this facebook live. i have a list here. just this week criminal intent or investigation from the feds in new york, a fight with elizabeth warren, you remember that over the ads, warren wants to break up facebook, as well, accusations from great britain about wrongdoing, two executives quit and then you got the facebook live, as well. we have a video of the latest bloomberg business week magazine cover of zuckerberg and you can see computer code on there for apologies.
kris, he has done apologies in the past and gone on apology tour and i think he will have to do it again. >> mark zuckerberg is really the face of facebook so it time to find a new leader, a new face? >> that's a reasonable question. they've dealt with controversies and kept the same ceo. the answer is it can't because zuckerberg has a different class of stock than the rest of us. if you buy facebook stock you have class-a stock. that's great. zuckerberg has class-b stock and for every one of his shares he gets ten votes to your one and impossible for shareholders to suggest he leave because he controls facebook. >> all right. we'll see if he chooses to leave at some point. the mass shooting in knew ze zealand affecting security here in the u.s. and the bay area. >> we want to head to san francisco where we are joined by nbc bay area pete suratos.
pete, you have been in the mosque in the islamic center of san francisco all morning and talked to folks feeling concern. we understand that. >> reporter: yeah. that's right. understandably so. they're sad and frustrated about the events as you just talked about right there in new zealand and they said they're doing their best to keep spirits up. >> i just with a tonight say we're all human beings. we have to take care of each other. we have a different beliefs. we got to respect for each other. >> reporter: now, fridays here at the islamic center in san francisco are the busiest according to syed who you just heard from where he said hundreds attending a prayer service this afternoon. we saw a handful of people heading into the mosque for prayer this morning and as the details of the mosque shooting continue to come in, syed had
this to say about the tragic event. >> this is the act of terrorism. you know? we do not tolerate, whether it's muslims or nonmuslims, my heart broken for those people that died and not 40 people, 40 families we're talking about. you know? i will really condemn that attack and i hopefully the people responsible take some action. >> reporter: back out here live to the islamic center in san francisco. he mentioned this they reached out to san francisco police to patrol the area and saw a police car patrol the area not long ago as they anticipate big crowds for the prayer service this takes place on fridays here at the mosque and they said they're expecting a big crowd of up to 500 people. in san francisco, pete suratos, nbc bay area news. >> all right. we feel for them. thank you, pete. this is a story that's developing by the minute. we will have the latest on air
and of course online. you can just head to nbc bay area.com to see how you can help those affected. all right. we are going to shift gears a little bit. it is game on. the raiders are going to play in oakland for at least one more season. the team and the coliseum have agreed on another year and nbc bay area's bob redell is live at the coliseum with the good news for raider nation. >> reporter: assuming that the city of oakland and the county of alameda approve the deal, they will be here one more season. about 90 minutes ago the commissioners with the oakland alameda county coliseum voted 7-0 to extend the lease with the raiders to allow the team to play in the coliseum this upcoming season and the option to play here during the 2020-2021 season if the new stadium in las vegas isn't ready by then. look to the details of the deal.
the raiders will be paying $7.5 million in rent this season. that's $4 million more than what they paid last season. they optioned to stay the following season, $10.5 million in rent and see that the raiders agreed to pay $750,000 to settle a parking lot dispute about revenues. that money to go to the jpa. the cap on game day expensions for the jpa, joint powers authority, they usually have to pay game day expenses. there's a cap on how much to pay and any naming rights revenue coming in for the new name of the coliseum, all that money goes to the jpa and the raiders they would get to have the training facility for 36 months. that's part of the master agreement they signed 20 years ago. now, the problem has been that the lease with the coliseum ended last season. both sides did have a deal to extend but that fell apart when the city sued the raiders and
nfl in federal court for breach of contract over the planned move to sin city and might recall the raiders looked at levi stadium and oracle park and neither location materialized. mark davis and the raiders back at the negotiating table with the executive director of the coliseum authority. >> we understand you're probably not pleased about a lawsuit. but on the other hand, why don't you go out and take a look at what else is out there? we're keeping our offer on the table. we want to partner with the fan base and the community and if you want to reengage with us, i'm willing to sit down and that's what we did. and they went and did their window shopping and found out that what they had here was a pretty good deal and mark davis and the president were cooperative to put a deal together. it turned out to be a pretty good partnership. >> reporter: he says he hopes the coliseum will have a new
naming rights agreement in a month and the warriors are leaving oracle arena and he's working on a new indoor football team to start playing there in spring of 2020. reporting live here outside the oakland coliseum, bob redell, nbc bay area news. >> sounds good, bob. if you have our app you got this alert. be sure to download the nbc bay area app. always to get breaking news right when it happens and it is free. student walkout in san francisco. it is part of a global call for action on climate change. called the youth climate strike. in the bay area alone, some 20 events are planned. these local students joined young people across the nation in organizing the walkout. they walked from nancy pelosi's office to union square in san francisco where they held a rally. it is a difference of climate and weather. the weather today, though, is beautiful. >> beautiful. look at the golden gate bridge. >> gorgeous. >> clear skies. and everybody's already looking
