He was rammed off the road by a police officer driving a car, I don't think it was a gun behind the wheel? just to be pedantic.

That's not the shooter I was talking about.

I was talking about the shooting at the 2nd mosque. The one where an armed worshiper started returning fire...which ended the shooting at the 2nd mosque immediately.

Everything else I've seen and I haven't and will not watch the "video", his car was rammed and the attacker arrested by police, I haven't seen anything about a "shoot-out"?? He wasn't stopped by someone shooting back (I didn't see that and missed it)??

Edited to add to last line.

SO, you are claiming ignorance to support you false supposition?

You do realize there were shootings at two different mosques, correct?

Yeah, I know there where two shootings and I thought he was detained at the second fleeing the scene.

That is being ignorant of the facts. And, that "question" was a loaded supposition on your part. Don't try to deny that now.

I'll bet New Zealand police won't be too happy about being limited to revolvers. Especially their SWAT teams.

There were two separate shootings at two different mosques. Last I heard four people have been detained.

The shooter at the first mosque was detained when police rammed his car and took him into custody following the shooting. The second mosque was attacked by (I believe) a second shooter, which there has been little coverage of. At this location, an armed worshiper intervened and returned fire at the shooter who then fled. He was not captured at this location (that I've heard anyway). The citizen defender intervened and stopped the second shooting, but my understanding is there were several lives lost at this location also. In any case, the loss of life was significantly less than the loss of life where there was no armed defense.

It wasn't "loaded" in the slightest, and excuse me for not knowing all the facts and being here questioning the validity of the story.
You should maybe try coming down of that high horse of yours.

They weren't and they aren't.

SWAT officials I saw were armed with not semi, but fully automatic weapons. There's no shortage of firepower there.

And, to the best of my knowledge, none of them fired a shot (probably never had the chance to engage them).

The latest I heard was there was only one shooter and he was detained by a officer who rammed his car, I thought the others who were arrested elsewhere knew the attacker and haven't been charged yet?

Oh, by the way, where are those question marks in this loaded question? < ---- that is a question mark

All I saw were a set of ellipses, which indicates a snide comment from an unfinished statement. It's typically used to ask a rhetorical question where the answer is a forgone conclusion to setup the recipient.

Then I stand corrected, and send apologies for my mischaracterization.
