Number of casualties in each mosque VOICEOVER (in English): "According to the BBC, gunman Brenton Tarrant live-streamed the attack via a head-mounted camera.
Footage shows him driving to Al Noor mosque in Christchurch, and selecting a weapon from the boot of the car." "At around 1:40 p.m., he walked into the mosque through the front entrance and began shooting at people inside, who were there for Friday prayers." "Based on the footage, the BBC reports that Tarrant opened fire inside the women's prayer hall, and then the men's before returning to his car to change weapons.
He then re-entered the mosque and shot at bodies in the men's hall before leaving." "The Washington Post reports that 50-year-old Naeem Rashid had tried to overpower the gunman, but was shot and later died from his wounds." "After leaving the mosque, Tarrant got into his car and drove five kilometers to another mosque in Linwood." "Linwood's acting imam Latef Alabi told Stuff that he was leading prayers for a congregation of over 80 when he heard a voice outside at about 1:55 p.m." "He looked out the window to find a man in a helmet holding a large gun and bodies on the ground, and told everyone to get down." "According to the New York Times, Tarrant was firing through a window when Abdul Aziz, a member of the congregation, ran out and threw a credit card machine at him." "Aziz followed the attacker and picked up a discarded gun.
He later threw the gun at Tarrant's windshield, prompting him to drive away." "Stuff reports that police officers managed to force Tarrant's car from the road soon after.
Video taken by a resident shows officers dragging the suspect out of the vehicle and taking him into custody." "According to the BBC, a total of 42 casualties were reported in the Al Noor Mosque, while eight were killed at the Linwood mosque shooting, including one who died later in the hospital."
