At least 49 people were killed and dozens injured in the unprecedented attack that stunned the nation and the world.

The suspect identified as Brenton Harrison Tarrant, appeared before district court judge Paul Kellar here on Saturday morning and was charged with one count of murder, The Guardian reported.

Police Commissioner Mike Bush said Friday night that a man had been charged with murder.

Tarrant, 28, was handcuffed and wearing a white prison jumpsuit when he quietly walked into the courtroom. Tarrant, who posted an anti-immigrant manifesto online and apparently used a helmet-mounted camera to broadcast live video of the slaughter in the city of Christchurch, appeared to make a hand sign, similar to an OK sign, that is sometimes associated with white nationalists.

Authorities implemented extra security measures.

The winners of New Zealand's first-class domestic cricket competition, Plunket Shield, has been decided with a round left, in the wake of the terrorist attack at a mosque in Christchurch. Ardern labeled the carnage a terrorist attack and has vowed to change the country's gun laws as a result.

The Herald later quoted one of the witnesses from Lindwood, Syed Mazharuddin, who said that the gunman was confronted by a mosque caretaker, who wrestled one of his guns away but did not shoot because he "couldn't find the trigger".

He said he chose New Zealand because of its location, to show that even the most remote parts of the world were not free of "mass immigration". Ardern said some were from Pakistan, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh, Indonesia and Malaysia.

Two Jordanians were among those killed, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement carried by the state-run Petra news service.

On Facebook, a user named Alta Marie said her husband Zulfirman Syah and her son were both shot at the Linwood Islamic Center in Christchurch. He was shot in the abdomen and the leg. He said he and others escaped by breaking through a glass door. "In New Zealand, only licensed gun owners may lawfully acquire, possess or transfer a firearm or ammunition".

Two semi-automatic weapons, reportedly AR-15s, two shotguns and a lever-action gun were used in the attacks.

Gun control experts told the Guardian such weapons can be easily converted into a military-style semi-automatic rifle using a high-capacity magazine, the sale of which is not regulated in New Zealand.

NZC CEO David White said his organisation endorsed the process and the wishes of the players at such a traumatic time.

One of the four detained after the mass shootings is Australian, said Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

In his screed, the suspected gunman said he had been planning the attack for two years. Police have not yet described the scale of the shooting but urged people in central Christchurch to stay indoors.

"He loves New Zealand". "I convey the message of love and support on behalf of New Zealand to all of you", she said. He had no criminal history in New Zealand or Australia, and had not drawn the attention of the intelligence community for extremist views.

One other man was arrested on Friday for carrying a firearm in his vehicle in order to get to his family home while the city was in lockdown, and was released by police without charge.
