Update 2 - At Least 9 Killed İn New Zealand Mosque Shootings

Witnesses said Al Noor Mosque was hosting 200 worshippers when shooting occurred.

At least nine people were killed in shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, local media reported Friday.

Gunmen attacked the mosques and fired multiple times during Friday prayers, according to the Stuff news outlet.

Residents were advised to stay indoors and notify authorities if they see anything suspicious.

There is no place in New Zealand for such acts of extreme and unprecedented violence, which it is clear this act was," said Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. "It is clear this is one of New Zealand's darkest days."

Police said on Twitter: "We can confirm there have been a number of fatalities. Police are currently at a number of scenes. We understand that there will be many anxious people but I can assure New Zealanders that Police is doing all it can to resolve this incident."

Witnesses claim the Al Noor Mosque was targeted by armed assailants and there were up to 200 people inside for Friday Prayers.

Witnesses Len Peneha told reporters a man dressed in black entered the mosque and fired before running away before security forces arrived.

Peneha said he saw "dead people everywhere" when he entered the Al Noor mosque to help those who were wounded.
