The gun prepared for almost everything. His helmet was cinched tight, his rifle magazines full, and a small cache of firearms was loaded into the car. The only thing he didn't seem to plan was a route. A GPS squawked to gunman as he navigated in quiet Christchurch streets towards Al Noor Mosque.
In a rage that lasted a few minutes, the gunman killed 41 worshipers in the New Zealand mosque on Friday. Seven others were killed in another mosque three kilometers away, the authorities said, and another victim died in a hospital.
The authorities have released few details of the gunman in the video that they said is in his lower 20s. He was caught and will meet in court on murder charges Saturday morning, the authorities said. Two other suspects were also detained.
The stream of life has collided with the rise of manifest-armed mass-shooters, and the gunman seemed to carefully coordinate his massacre to roar across the Internet. He seems to have posted Facebook links that send live video from his helmet-mounted camera.
The Washington Post does not distribute the 17-minute video. It shows in the violent and nightmarish details the perspective of an alleged murderer and highlights the degree of preparation that the gunman undertook – with weapons and ammunition journals inscribed with white-supremacist messages.
In the video, gunman parks placed in an alley facing Deans Avenue and gaze at the passenger seat, where three firearms rest. A semi-automatic rifle covered with white nationalist slogan is thrown on his right shoulder. He activates a strobe light on the weapon, in an apparent attempt to illuminate and disorient his victims.
The shooter takes a semi-automatic shotgun from the trunk where two petrol blocks are rigged with units. He also has knee pads.
A group of men talking in the mosque's entry when the gun approaches and raises his shotgun.
"Hello brother," a man shouts.
The gun burns nine rounds in rapid succession on his first victim, throwing his shotgun on the ground as he exhausts his ammunition and quickly levels his rifle at others.
The rifle-mounted strobe flicks on a group of people shot after they fled towards two corners where they were caught.
A man rushes the shooter, but is cut down by firearms.  The shooter doesn't say anything as he navigates the corridors, shoots people and records magazines he falls into. Some are tied together to revive faster.
Although it is not unclear whether more than one pistols fired in the two separate mosques, it does not seem to communicate with others via radio or telephone. There are no moments that show tactical coordination with others.
A "14" is shown written on his holographic vision, a possible reference to a slogan associated with Adolf Hitler's "Mein Kampf." An inscription deals with Schwarze Sonne or "black sun", a symbol of various father-right-hate groups exploiting, the Associated Press reported.
The pistol educates the mosque before moving to the pavement and the fire on spectators. Then he jumps to the car and takes another rifle before reinstating the mosque. Groans fill the air, and the rifle goes methodically to space and fires to any person who has apparently survived.
In all, he uses a little less than 200 seconds in the mosque and fires many times before he goes outside again to shoot on spectators. For a cruel moment, a wounded woman scans and cries for help after she falls into the road.
Sagittarius jumps back into his car, where an apparently curated playlist blurs "Fire" by Crazy World of Arthur Brown.  He runs a short distance before he opens fire through the windshield with a puzzle shotgun breaking the passenger window with a shot. Smoke swirls through the car.
The gun runs away at high speed. Sirens are crying in the distance, and he criticizes the massacre that just unfolded, perhaps for himself or someone who sees his broadcast.
"There wasn't even time to aim, there were so many goals," he says after commenting on many magazines spilled out during the massacre.
The video ends while the gunman looms in and out of traffic. A yellow air freshener swims from the rear view mirror.
In a press conference on Saturday morning in New Zealand, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said that the gunman was found to have five firearms during the massacre: Two semi-automatic rifles, two shotguns and one "Ardern said he had a pistol license issued in November 2017.  YouTube, Twitter and Facebook struggled to contain the video, which resumed and shared across social media, even after companies intervened and began deleting the content.
Various historical references to conflicts with Muslims are also written on weapons, including the name Charles Martel.
White supremacist credit Martel "to save Europe by defeating an invading Muslim force in the Battle of Tours in 734," According to the Southern Poverty Law Center which monitors such groups.
Also included was the name Ebba Akerlund, an 11-year-old girl who was killed in an April 2017 attack in Stockholm by Rakhmat Akilov, a Uzbek man, report the Associated Press.
