Who Is Brenton Tarrant? Facts About The New Zealand Mosque Shooter Suspect

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern speaks to the media

Australian man Brenton Tarrant faced court on Saturday charged with one count of murder in relation to the attacks.

The Christchurch attacker could have killed even more people as he was on the move at the time of his arrest, and had more firearms in his auto, New Zealand's PM said, praising police who responded to the call in just 36 minutes.

New Zealand has previously tried to change its gun laws, with the most recent attempt coming two years ago.

Tarrant was arrested in a auto, which police said was carrying improvised explosive devices, 36 minutes after they were first called.

Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said the country's high commission in New Zealand is in touch with local authorities for more information.

From time to time people outside the cordon came to place flowers under a tree to express their condolences to the victims.

"Many of you may have seen the footage of the arrests, and I can only describe it as an act of bravery on behalf of all New Zealanders, and an act that shows very little regard for their own personal safety", she said.

Mr Bush revealed on Sunday that a 50th victim had been found, while 50 people had been wounded in the shootings sprees at the the Masjid Al Noor mosque on Deans Avenue and Linwood Masjid six kilometres away during Friday prayers.

Whether it was at her media conference in the immediate aftermath of the Christchurch mosque massacre on Friday or comforting the devastated Muslim community in the shaken city yesterday, the 38-year-old leader has displayed the right balance of strength and compassion in the aftermath of the atrocity that killed 49 and injured 39 more.

Hungry for any news, families and friends of the victims gathered at the city's Hagley College, near the hospital.

New Zealand's attorney general, David Parker, took it step farther and vowed to ban semi-automatic guns at a vigil on Saturday, but later backtracked as reported by The New York Times.

The New Zealand Red Cross has published a list of missing persons on its website.

"I still don't know where he is", she said.

In contrast, President Donald Trump has repeatedly told mourning Americans in the wake of shootings that stricter gun control would make the country more unsafe, not less.

Ardern added that the gunman reportedly had five firearms on him when he carried out the assault - two semi-automatic weapons, two shotguns and a lever-action firearm. Police say that this person was a member of the public armed with a gun with the intention of assisting officers.

Questions have been raised about why Tarrant had not appeared on a watchlist of New Zealand or Australian security agencies.

The AR-15 is a semi-automatic version of the United States military M16 rifle.

US President Donald Trump, who condemned the attack as a "horrible massacre", was praised by the accused gunman in a manifesto posted online as "a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose".

Pence also affirmed USA cooperation in ensuring all the perpetrators were brought to justice.
