Christchurch attacker intended to continue rampage when arrested: PM Jacinda Ardern

CHRISTCHURCH: The main suspect in New Zealand's worst peacetime mass taking pictures supposed to proceed the rampage before he was caught through police, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said on Saturday.

"The offender was mobile, there were two other firearms in the vehicle that the offender was in, and it absolutely was his intention to continue with his attack," Ardern informed journalists in Christchurch. The suspect, known as Brenton Harrison Tarrant, a 28-year-old Australian citizen, has been charged with homicide, although Ardern added that further charges are most probably.

"I'm not privileged to a full breakdown at this point but it is clear that young children have been caught up in this horrific attack," she said referring to sufferers of the attack.
