New Zealand Shooter Said 'Subscribe to PewDiePie' Before Mosque Massacre

Norway’s Prime Minister Erna Solberg

YouTube star Pewdiepie made an effort to distance himself from a perpetrator in the fatal Christchurch, New Zealand mosque shootings after the attacker reportedly called out "subscribe to Pewdiepie" during the terror incident.

Police have arrested four people following attacks that took place in two Muslim places of worship in Christchurch on Friday afternoon (local time).

"I can tell you one thing right now: our gun laws will change", said Ardern. In Scotland, the shooting of 16 students and a teacher in March 1996 prompted the banning of private ownership of handguns in the United Kingdom, and after the Port Arthur massacre where 35 people were killed in a series of shootings, Austrailia enacted widespread tightening of gun laws. Forty-one people were killed at one mosque, and seven people were killed at the second mosque.

"Police are responding with its full capability to manage the situation, but the risk environment remains extremely high", he said in a release on Friday.

The suspects' ideology and preparation for the attack - Prime Minister Ardern described them as having "extremist views", but New Zealand's police commissioner said the man charged with murder was not known to intelligence services.

Relief groups like the New Zealand Red Cross are already helping the community register missing persons, connect with loved ones, or mark themselves safe.
