I don’t know enough about it yet. They're just learning about the person, and the people involved. But it’s certainly a terrible thing.”</p>  <p>The casualty toll for the attack includes 12 victims who were critically injured and officials are warning that figure could rise.</p>  <p>Forty-two people were injured in the coordinated attacks, Karalyn van Deursen, executive communications director at Christchurch Hospital, told Anadolu Agency.</p>  <p>The dead include a 5-year-old girl and her father, who were chased by a gunman and shot, local Radio New Zealand reported.</p>  <p>The gunman opened fire on worshippers during Friday prayers at the Al Noor and Linwood mosques in and around Christchurch, New Zealand’s third-largest city.</p>  <p>Four suspects -- three men and one woman -- were taken into custody in connection with the massacres. One has reportedly been released.</p>  <p>A 28-year-old prime suspect is scheduled to appear in court Saturday after having been charged with murder. </p>  <p>
