Abdul Aziz: The man who saved lives by running at the Christchurch gunman

Hero Mosque Worker Grabs NZ Attacker’s Gun

The massacre was carried out on Friday across two mosques in the city by a far-right terrorist who filmed the shooting and posted an online anti-Islamic manifesto online before the attack.

"He had army clothes on".

"I'm very sad for what has happened, but I believe this country is a peaceful country and I hope something good will happen after that and the security will become tighter". "When he swore at me, I knew that he was not the good guy", Mr Aziz said in an interview.

Aziz then ran to the front of the mosque, grabbed a credit card machine and hurled it toward the gunman.

He then picked up a gun dropped by the shooter and pulled the trigger, but it was empty: "I was screaming at the guy, come over here, come over here - I just wanted to put his focus on me". "When he saw the gun in my hands, I don't know what happened, he dropped the gun and I chased him with my own gun..."

"He gets into his vehicle and I just got the gun and threw it on his window like an arrow and blasted his window", he said.

"He (Aziz) went after him, and he managed to overpower him, and that's how we were saved".
