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 a rifle and shot several people.

The shooter entered the Masjid Al Noor 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.

About 20 officers are clearing nearby buildings, while Christchurch schools have been placed on lockdown. Another witness said he saw “a man in handcuffs being led away by police.”

Witnesses, cited by media, have said multiple people were killed, with an unnamed source telling Stuff there were nine fatalities. There has been no official confirmation of the numbers as of yet. Witness Muhammad Alsouzan says “up to 15” were shot inside the mosque.

Christchurch Hospital staff are expecting about 40 to 50 injured people and have cleared out the emergency department in preparation.
