New Zealand media also said a shooting occurred in a second mosque, Linwood Masjid in the city. I just got on someone's vehicle and just we went near that place and it was very traumatic.

Another witness told stuff.co.nz he was praying in the Deans Ave mosque when he heard shooting and saw his wife lying dead on the footpath outside when he fled. "This is and will be one of New Zealand's darkest days".

The team stayed in their bus when the players saw signs of the attack. The police have warned worshippers not to visit mosques "anywhere in New Zealand".

"Police urge anyone in central Christchurch to stay off the streets", he said in a statement.

International Cricket Council chief executive David Richardson said the sport's governing body 'fully supports the decision to cancel the test match'.

Video footage widely circulated on social media, apparently taken by a gunman and posted online live as the attack unfolded, showed him driving to one mosque, entering it and shooting randomly at people inside.

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

When he was asked whether or not there were any suspicions that the attacker was aware of the presence of the team there and even deliberately targeted them, Isam said that he did not think so. The people who were the subject of this attack today, New Zealand is their home, they should be safe here. However, all the players safely back in the hotel but they are in a shock.
