Eyewitness of Friday's mass shooting Ahmed Wali Khan recalled the moment the shooter entered Linwood Islamic Centre and opened fire, while speaking to the press in Christchurch on Tuesday.
"The first time when I heard, the first thought was it must be someone of the kids or something be fired or something like that and stuff and then, because after the three shots I heard 'Help!,' so that's why I looked through the window and I saw a dead body straight away, it was lying down on the ground," Wali Khan said.
According to Khan, he and his friend, Afghan refugee and local resident Abdul Aziz, decided to distract the gunman and to lead him away from the mosque.
"The brother came down to the car park. And he was talking to him and stuff. And telling him 'come face me here to the car park,'" Wali Khan recalled.
According to media reports, after Aziz went outside, he chased the shooter with a credit card machine. He also grabbed one of the man's guns, but when he saw that it was out of bullets, he hurled it toward the gunman before the attacker sped off.
Seven people died at the Linwood Islamic Centre, which was the second of two mosques targeted by the gunman, with a total of 50 people killed in the both attacks in Christchurch.
The main suspect, 28-year-old Australian Brenton Tarrant, appeared in court on Saturday charged with murder.
