Commissioner Bush said "We are now dealing with an unprecedented situation in New Zealand".
"It is clear that this can only be described as a terrorist attack".
The YouTuber is now the most subscribed to person on the platform and since another channel has been very close to taking that number one spot from him for a while, the words used by Tarrant had become pretty much a meme, as well as a way for people to support the Swedish entertainer.
"I am not going to let this change New Zealand's profile, none of us should".
The suspect has been named as Brenton Tarrant, a 28-year-old Australian.
Australia's prime minister Scott Morrison has since confirmed that one of those arrested was an Australian citizen. One has since been charged with murder.
Video and documents circulating online - but not officially confirmed - suggested the shooter had streamed his attack on Facebook Live.
"My thoughts and solidarity are with New Zealand's Muslim community and all of its people on this dark day. Two explosive devices attached to suspects' vehicles have now been found and they have been disarmed", Ardern said in a televised address. However, at least one report mentioned the possibility that the mention was a way to raise awareness of the controversial PewDiePie, who has been embraced by some on the right for past controversial statements and imagery he has employed.
Reputed Gambino crime boss gunned down in New York City
The Todt Hill neighborhood is known for its mafia history. "Very surprising, but I guess old habits die hard". According to local media in NY , he took the helm of the Gambino family in 2015, replacing Domenico Cefalu.
However, what comes across as a weird part of the terrible act was that in the Facebook live-stream of the shooting, one of the gunmen says: "Remember, lads, subscribe to PewDiePie".
Peneha, who lives next door, said the gunman ran out of the mosque, dropped what appeared to be a semi-automatic weapon in his driveway and fled.
"He had a big gun. he came and started shooting everyone in the mosque, everywhere", said the man, Ahmad Al-Mahmoud. "I saw lots of broken glass and bricks on the backside of the mosque", he said. He said one was slightly injured.
When asked why they weren't on any lists, Ardern said: "It's an indication they had not acted in a way that warranted it". "I just don't understand it".
She added: "Today, at mosques across Scotland and elsewhere, Muslims will attend Friday prayers".
He then walks outside to the street, where he shoots at people on the sidewalk. Children's screams can be heard in the distance as he returns to his auto to get another rifle. Several more people were killed in an attack on a second mosque in the city a short time later. After walking back outside and shooting a woman there, he gets back in his auto, where the song "Fire" by English rock band "The Crazy World of Arthur Brown" can be heard blasting from the speakers. The singer bellows, "I am the god of hellfire!" and the gunman drives off before police even arrive.
The video shows the gunman then driving off at high speed and firing from his vehicle.
Aside from the 49 who were killed, 40 people are now being treated in the Christchurch Hospital for gunshot wounds. In a statement he said: "Our hearts go out to the people of New Zealand following the news of this awful act in Christchurch".

Another two individuals are still in custody as the police continue to determine if they were involved in any way. The victims of Friday's shooting included immigrants from Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Indonesia, and Malaysia.
The two mosques are about five kilometres apart.
Immigrants "have chosen to make New Zealand their home, and it is their home", Ardern said.
His manifesto was a welter of often politically contradictory views, touching on numerous most combustible issues of the day, among them the Second Amendment right to own guns, Muslim immigration, terrorist attacks and the wealthiest 1 percent.
New Zealand is generally considered to be a welcoming country for migrants and refugees.
Home to almost 400,000 people, Christchurch is the largest city on New Zealand's South Island. There will be so many people affected.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh cricket team's tour of New Zealand has been called off in the wake of the attack.
Players and members of the team's coaching staff were reportedly on their bus, approaching the Masjid Al Noor mosque in Hagley Park when the shooting broke out.
