Alleged Christchurch gunman identified as former Grafton local

Canberra: Before he became known today as a mass killer, Brenton Tarrant was known within his childhood town of Grafton as someone who was dedicated to fitness and ran free athletic programs for children.

The gunman who killed 49 worshippersin two New Zealand mosques on Friday was a right-wing “terrorist” with Australian citizenship, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said.

The 28-year-old, who attended Grafton High School before getting his qualifications in fitness, listened to 17th-century British military music before opening fire on a mosque in New Zealand’s south Island; write Laura Chung and Sarah Keoghan who spoke to his former boss.
