This year just got more incredible.
News broke this afternoon of an attack at Countdown Lynnmall where the assailant was shot and six people injured, three critically. Jacinda Ardern and Police Commissioner have just given a stand up conference and have advised that the assailant was ISIS inspired.
He was a known threat and was under monitoring. He was shot by a police tactical unit who had been following him as a matter of course.
Ardern indicated he had been under surveillance since 2016.
More to follow.
