Bangladesh Cricket Board spokesman Jalal Yunus said most of the team were bussed to the mosque and were about to go inside when the incident happened.

Police officials did not immediately comment on whether the incident took place in the mosques or nearby.

"At first we thought it was an electric shock but then all these people started running".

"I have friends at both Islamic centres - it's terrifying and I don't know what to do".

"I am scared for my friends".

"I saw about 20 plus people, some were dead, some were screaming".

There are unconfirmed reports that the people (shooters) are still at large and that there are shootings in multiple locations. Police said there are a number of causalities but did not specify how many. He said one was slightly injured.

Members of the Bangladeshi cricket team were praying in the mosque when shooting broke out.

"If there is one thing I want you to remember from these writings, its that the birthrates must change".

People cowering in corners of a room were all shot as the gunman blocked the hallway, cutting off anyone's attempt to escape.

About 10 to 15 people were seen outside the mosque, "some alive, some dead", said Clarke.

"Police and ambulance are coming from every direction".

"They ran back through Hagley Park back to the Oval", he tweeted.

He said he also saw the gunman flee before emergency services arrived.

Deans Ave has been closed between Moorhouse Avenue and Riccarton Road.

Christchurch Hospital has urged people to avoid the area unless they are seriously injured. Officers also cleared Cathedral Square, where thousands of children were holding a rally for action on climate change, according to BBC news.

"A reader from New Zealand said:" This just hits so close to home.

A person shared this post to a Christchurch parents Facebook page.

The city has been placed in lockdown, with schools and public buildings closed.

St Margaret's College told parents not to contact the school as "the phones are now closed".

The Twitter account, which appears to belong to the gunman, contained images of ammunition magazines with names scrawled across them in white marker, including the names of two mass shooters who targeted migrants and Muslims.

Arden says this is one of New Zealand's darkest day as it is an extraordinary and unprecedented act of violence.
