CHILLING FOOTAGE of the sickening New Zealand shooting was broadcast live on YouTube by the gunman who strapped a GoPro camera to his head.
In the distressing 17-minute footage the man says: “Let’s get this party started,” as he starts his car and begins driving to the Al Noor Mosque in central Christchurch.
He pauses and says: “Remember lads, subscribe to PewDiePie.”
(PewDiePie is one of the most-watched celebrities on YouTube, although the site has cut ties with him over racially-charged language. His videos have attracted more than 20 billion views.)
Wearing camouflage pants with knee pads and brown fingerless gloves, the gunman drives through streets with an arsenal of firearms beside him.
With Serbian music playing in the background, he takes directions from a sat nav that tells him to “turn left in 200 metres”.
One pump action shotgun and two other unidentified long-arms, all covered in white writing with the names of prominent figures who fought or attacked Muslims dating back to the crusades, sit beside him on the front passenger seat.
As he pulls up outside the mosque, the music changes to the traditional marching song of the British military, the British Grenadiers.
He parks his car and removes an assault rifle with a tactical strobe light on barrel. He then collects a semi-automatic shotgun from the boot and walks towards the mosque.
He opens fire semi-auto shotgun as soon as he reaches the door, emptying the chamber and throwing the gun on the floor as he steps inside.
Inside, he walks from room to rom, firing the fully automatic assault rifle at worshippers scrambling for safety. He shoots dozens of people, pause only to reload the magazine, which he does several times.
He steps over bodies as he roams from room to room in the mosque. When no one is left standing he turns his weapon on the wounded.
He then exits the mosque and fires at people on the street as we walks to the car. He retrieves a second assault rifle from the car boot.
The shooter then re-enters the mosque, again shooting at people lying on the ground from close range as he walks around a room.
Once outside, the man shoots again down the street. One woman can be seen lying on the road yelling “help me, help me”.
He returns to the car and drives off, saying, “That did not go as planned,” and chuckles coldly.
Back in the car, he picks up a pump-action shotgun from the passenger seat and tries to shoot through the windscreen. Unsuccessful, he blasts out the side window instead.
“I got in and out too quick, I should have stayed longer. “Shit happens.”
An ambulance siren sounds in the background as he says: “There wasn’t even time to aim due to so many targets.” He then puts another address into his car’s GPS and shoots at several people while driving. (The Sydney Morning Herald)
