The family of the Christchurch mosque shooter Brenton Tarrant say they are “shattered” for the people of New Zealand and those suffering from Tarrant’s actions.

“We are so sorry for the families of the dead and the injured,” Tarrant’s uncle, Terry Fitzgerald, told Australia’s 9 News.

At least 50 people, including nine Pakistanis, were killed in a twin mosque attack on Friday after a gunman sprayed bullets on Muslim worshipers in Christchurch.

The attacker was identified as Brenton Tarrant. Investigators believed that Tarrant had been planning the attacks for the last two years. The family said they first learned about his involvement in the attack through TV.

“It’s just not right… it’s irreparable,” Tarrant’s grandmother said.
