Christchurch shooting suspect pleads guilty to 51 murders

An Australian man accused of killing 51 Muslim worshippers in New Zealand’s worst mass shooting changed his plea to guilty in a surprise move on Thursday in Christchurch High Court. Brenton Tarrant, 29, also admitted the attempted murder of another 40 people, and 1 terrorism charge. He had previously denied the charges and was due to go on trial in June. His sentencing will happen later this year.
