49 killed in mass shootings at 2 mosques in 'one of New Zealand's darkest days'
At least 49 people were killed and dozens more injured in mass shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, Friday.
At least one gunman carried out what is now the deadliest shooting in New Zealand history.
"It's something that we never expected to have happen here," Christchurch MP Gerry Brownlee told "Good Morning America." "We're a relatively small population, and while we are ethnically quite diverse, we live very peaceable lives. And this, as many have seen, has shattered our innocence."
