Black Caps, Bangladesh in lockdown after Christchurch mass shooting

Both the Black Caps and Bangladesh are in lockdown this afternoon, following the mass shooting at a Christchurch mosque.

Parts of central Christchurch are in lockdown after it is believed at least one gunman opened fire at a mosque in the city. Eyewitnesses said as many as 15 people may been hit at the mosque, the Masjid Al Noor mosque on Deans Ave.

New Zealand Cricket spokesperson Richarch Boock told 1 NEWS that the two teams are both in lockdown.

1 NEWS understands that both teams are currently at the Hagley Oval pavillion, which Mr Boock would neither confirm nor deny.

There has been no word from New Zealand Cricket as to whether or not tomorrow's third Test match between New Zealand and Bangladesh will still go ahead.
