New Zealand PM Says Christchurch Shooter Was Not A Resident Of The Country

According to a report by Reuters, on Friday, New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the suspect in the Christchurch shooting traveled around the world and was not a long-term resident in the country.

At a news conference in the capital Wellington, Ardern said that the man was an Australian citizen 'who traveled sporadically to New Zealand and stayed for varied amount of time." She also reportedly said that he was not on the watch list in either New Zealand or Australia.
