Police are responding to what appears to be a shooting at a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand. One witness reports a man entered the building with an automatic rifle and shot several people.

The shooter entered the mosque 10 minutes after prayers began and let off “dozens, if not hundreds of rounds,” witness Ahmad al-Mahmoud told New Zealand outlet Stuff. He described the man as white-skinned, blond, short, and wearing a helmet and bulletproof vest.
