A brave man who was killed after a daring attempt to seize the main suspect’s weapons of tragedy Christchurch’s brutal murder was confirmed as Naeem Rashid.

Rashid was said to have beaten the shooter, Brenton Tarrant, 28, an Australian in the massacre at Al Noor Mosque and Linwood Mosque, on Friday.

Rashid suffered a severe injury after poaching the suspect in an effort to save the lives of dozens of people at the mosque.

Rashid breathed last night during the treatment at the hospital.

Son of Naeem Rashid also died on the spot.

Naeem Rashid was from Abbottabad, near Capital city Islamabad in Pakistan and worked at a private bank before moving to Christchurch to serve as a teacher.

Earlier, a surviving pilgrim said a man dropped the striker and stole an attacker’s weapon before escaping.

Syed Mazharuddin was performing Friday prayers at the Linwood Mosque, where the two locations attacked when he heard gunshots.

He told the New Zealand Herald newspaper, one of his colleagues died at the scene while another was seriously injured when he tried to contact the emergency services.

“I ran out and then the police came, they did not allow me to go back to rescue the injured friends.

“Ambulances take more than an hour to arrive and I think he has died when the ambulance reaches the massacre site,” he said
