First Lady Melania Trump issued a statement on Friday offering her condolensces for the victims of the mass shooting in New Zealand.
At least 49 people were killed and dozens more injured in mass shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, Friday.
At least one gunman carried out what is now the deadliest shooting in New Zealand history.
"It's something that we never expected to have happen here," Christchurch MP Gerry Brownlee told "Good Morning America." "We're a relatively small population, and while we are ethnically quite diverse, we live very peaceable lives. And this, as many have seen, has shattered our innocence."
Brownlee, who said he lives a short distance from one of the shooting sites, said, "Almost everyone will know someone or have a connection with the families of someone who has been either killed or seriously wounded today."
"This is one of New Zealand's darkest days," New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said in a press conference Friday
