10:15 'Heavily monitored' Sri Lankan man with ISIS leanings shot dead

Countdown stores thoughout the rohe - the nation, will open at 10am tomorrow morning following today's attack by a Sri Lankan national described by the Prime Minister as known to be a threat to New Zealand, at Countdown's Lynnmall store in Auckland

The company's general manager of safety, Kiri Hannifin, says staff are in shock and their hearts are heavy, knowing what the team and customers at the Lynnmall store have witnessed and been through. She says Countdown wants a chance to talk to staff and make sure they have any support needed before the stores open.

Six people have been taken to hospital with stab wounds - three of them are intensive care.

The Prime Minister says the man was being heavily monitored for his Islamic State beliefs, and was shot dead by police who surrounded him within a minute of the stabbings.

The Government says the Crown has filed an urgent application seeking that the courts urgently lift suppression orders relating to the man.
