Youngest Victim Of The New Zealand Attack - 3-Year-Old Mucad, Ran
Towards The Gunman.
A 3-year old boy, Mucad Ibrahim was unfortunately part of the 50 victims murdered in the recent New Zealand mosque attack, orchestrated by a gunman.
According to reports, the lively and energetic Mucad was picked up by his father, Adan Ibrahim, about noon to take him to Friday prayers at the mosque, as usual.
When the gunman stormed the mosque about 10 minutes into the sermon and started shooting sporadically, little Mucad appeared to think it was a scene form the kind of video game his older brothers liked to play.
Hence, "he ran towards the gunman," Mohamed Hassan, a 21-year-old member of the Somali community said. Amidst the chaos, Mucad's father and brother ran in different directions.
