But it's probably a "family dispute" resulting in so far 3 dead and 5 injured following a shooting in a tram.
The suspect's currently in custody. He's also a suspect in a rape case and has a long string of crimes to his name: quoting the NOS: "attempted manslaughter, threat and insulting a woman (stalking), threatening and insulting police and urinating in a police cell."

Homegrown partly evacuated after reports of far-right tattoo

Shapeshifter performing at Wellington's annual Homegrown festival in 2018.

What appeared to be a far-right tattoo was the cause of thousands being evacuated from Wellington's Homegrown festival.

Concert-goers at the dub and roots stage in Waitangi Park were evacuated about 9.20pm on Saturday after security raised concerns about an attendee. They were allowed back in after about 20 minutes.

Police on Sunday morning said fears were raised about a man who appeared to have a far-right tattoo and was thought to be acting suspiciously.

It was this that sparked the evacuation but it turned out the tattoo was traditional and not tied to far-right ideology, police said.

Homegrown spokeswoman Kelly Wright said about 5000 people were evacuated following an incident "deemed enough of a threat to evacuate". However, concert-goers returned shortly before 10pm, Wright said.

The evacuation meant a moment's silence was not held at the planned time at the dub and roots stage.

"It was just completely out of our control, as it's transpired all four other stages kept going," she said.

"It was only interrupted for 20 minutes, which was actually only 10 minutes that wasn't the change over.

"They actually only missed out on 10 minutes."

Wright apologised for the inconvenience, but added safety was of "utmost importance" to the organisers.

Earlier, attendees posted pictures to Twitter showing festival-goers being evacuated, with some social media users speculating a bomb threat had been made.

A Stuff reporter on the ground said he was watching acts at the festival's city stage, where Dave Dobbyn was about to start his set, and no one had been evacuated.

The festival has five stages in total, also including the electronic stage, rock stage and the lab stage.

The concert was to fall silent at 9.25pm, so the 20,000 event-goers could pay respects to those who lost their lives or were injured in the Christchurch terror attacks.

"All artists and bands appearing at Homegrown will stand together on their respective stages for the minute's silence," a statement from the organisers said.

Promoters have dubbed the one day festival "Kiwi music's biggest party".

The story so far

On Friday March 15th, 2019, a gunman walked into two Christchurch mosques and killed 50 people.

It was a shocking, brutal assault, the kind New Zealanders had told themselves happened only in other countries.
But the terror of a hate-filled mass murder had visited our nation now too.
This was the end of our innocence.

Mick Jagger postpones Rolling Stones tour under doctor's orders as he seeks medical treatment for undisclosed illness

Sir Mick Jagger has said he is "devasta'ed" to let down fans after the Rolling Stones were forced to postpone a tour of the US and Canada while the frontman seeks medical treatment.

The singer, 75, has been told by doctors that he cannot go on tour at the moment but have advised that he is expected to make a full recovery.

No further details of his condition were given.

A statement from the group said: "Unfortunately today the Rolling Stones have had to announce the postponement of their upcoming US/Canada tour dates - we apologise for any inconvenience this causes those who have tickets to shows but wish to reassure fans to hold onto these existing tickets, as they will be valid for rescheduled dates, which will be announced shortly.

Jagger said he would be 'working very hard to be back on stage' (AFP/Getty Images) "Mick has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time, as he needs medical treatment.

"The doctors have advised Mick that he is expected to make a complete recovery so that he can get back on stage as soon as possible."

Sir Mick added: "I'm so sorry to all our fans in America & Canada with tickets. I really hate letting you down like this.

"I'm devasta'ed for having to postpone the tour but I will be working very hard to be back on stage as soon as I can. Once again, huge apologies to everyone."

The band were due to kick off the US and Canada leg of their No Filter tour at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida on April 20, finishing at the Burl's Creek Even Grounds in Ontario, Canada, on June 29.

David Seymour hoists himself with his own petard, providing small moment of levity
Henry Cooke 17:25 April 2nd, 2019

Image
ROSS GIBLIN/STUFF
ACT leader David Seymour should be thanked for providing Parliament with a small moment of levity.

ANALYSIS: David Seymour seemed to realise something was wrong just when he was too late to do anything about it.

The sole ACT Party Member of Parliament was standing just outside of the House on Tuesday taking oodles of questions from media about why exactly he was going to stand athwart history and yell "stop".

His stand was against the Government passing its gun control laws in just two weeks, a move supported by everyone in Parliament except Seymour.

While Seymour couldn't stop the Government doing this, he could stop it getting the bill rushed through with the support of all of Parliament, instead forcing them into the messy business of urgency. All he had to do was yell that he objected when Chris Hipkins stood up and sought the leave to abridge the normal process, and he'd get his nice little rhetorical win, perhaps winning the votes of some frustrated gun owners in the process.

But alas, as Seymour stood taking a good five minutes of questions from the humble press gallery, the clock ticked past 2pm and the House got going in earnest. Hipkins, clearly not believing his luck, started to reel off the long point of order to an incredulous House, while MPs across the spectrum craned their necks to check whether Seymour had arrived.

He had not. Despite rushing off from the media when he realised just how late he was - there's a handy clock and bell system to stop MPs being tardy - Seymour did not make it, and the point of order was carried with no objection. Seymour had missed his chance to stop the law being passed quickly because he was too busy talking about stopping the law being passed quickly.

This David had met his Goliath in the form of the boyish Chris Hipkins. And this time Goliath had won.

The Government MPs maintained big smiles throughout Question Time, handing a bucket of lollies passed down the front bench, National MPs - including the man obliged to lose to Seymour every election, Paul Goldsmith - could be seen openly laughing, with Maggie Barry wiping what looked to be tears from her eyes.

The end result, as Seymour noted with a big smile on his face after Question Time, was the same: the bill was always going to pass within two weeks. This position is entirely true, but also happens to invalidate Seymour's original plan.

This is a clear victory for Hipkins' reputation as a manager of the House, which was left somewhat damaged after a mixup voting for the Speaker just as this Government began its term.

It's also provided a tiny sliver of levity to what will be a grim session of Parliament begins to fully reckon with the horror of the Christchurch attacks.

Parliament's proxy system means MPs very rarely actually have to be in the House for important things.


The last time something like this happened was in 2007, when United Future MP Gordan Copeland quit his party thanks to his opposition to the anti-smacking bill. He then missed the third reading debate - and the vote, although he managed to have this corrected later.

Copeland was soon booted from Parliament, winning just 515 electorate votes. A similar future seems unlikely for Seymour, although Epsom voters are not known for their love of guns.

At least Seymour doesn't have to face his caucus and explain himself any time soon - unless he catches himself in the mirror, of course.

Fact of the day...

Hippos can run faster than humans on land.

They can swim faster than humans in water.

Which means the bicycle is your only chance of beating a hippo in a triathlon.

A couple on their honeymoon are just preparing to get into bed together when the wife says to the hubby, "darling I have a confession to make to you, I used to be a hooker."The husband thought for a moment and said, "actually, I find that a bit of a turn on, tell me about it."She replied, "well, my name was Graham and I played for Wigan."

For all you Audi owners having a bad day.

A German guy approaches a prostitute.

"I vish to buy sex viz you."

"OK," says the girl, "I'll charge £80 an hour."

"..ist goot, but I must varn you, I am a little kinky."

"No problem," she replies cautiously, "I can do a little kinky."

So off they go to the girl's flat, where the German produces four large bedsprings and a duck caller.

"I vant you to tie ze springs to each of your hans und knees."

The girl finds this most odd, but complies, fastening the springs as he had said, to her hands and knees.

"Now you vill get on your hans und knees."

She duly does this, balancing precariously on the springs.

"You vill please blow zis kwacker as I make love to you."

She finds it odd, but figures it's harmless (and the guy is paying.) She finds the sex is fantastic, as she
is bounced all over the room by the energetic German, all the time honking on the duck caller.


The climax is the most sensational that she has ever experienced and it is several minutes before she has
enough breath to say:

"That was totally amazing, what do you call that position ?"

"Ach," says the German .. . . "zat is ze"............." Four-sprung Duck Technique."

Naked teens lead police on high-speed chase

WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. - Three women spotted naked at a Florida interstate rest area Wednesday are now wearing jail uniforms.

A custodian at the I-75 rest stop in Wesley Chapel called 911 after finding the women, all naked and applying sunscreen just after 11 a.m. Wednesday.

A Florida Highway Patrol Trooper pulled up to see the three young women **** and standing in the grass. They said they were "air drying" after showering.

They then ran to their car and left. The trooper followed but broke off the chase.

The pursuit resumed when the group were later spotted at a gas station.

Florida Highway Patrol says when they arrived the driver tried to run down a trooper, a passenger came at a trooper with a metal bat, another trooper rammed their car and they sped off again.

Just when you want Cops to use there Body cams :mrgreen:
