New Zealand Mosque Shootings Suspect Appears in Court
The main suspect in a mass shooting in at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand that left 49 people dead appeared in court Saturday.
Brenton Tarrant, a 28-year old Australian citizen and self-proclaimed white nationalist, was led by two armed guards into the court in Christchurch where a judge read one charge of murder to him.
After the suspect left the court, the judge said that while “there is one charge of murder brought at the moment, it is reasonable to assume that there will be others.”
Two other suspected accomplices have also been arrested. Police are trying to determine to what extent, if any, they were involved in the attack.
