Gun City owner David Tipple said alleged gunman Australian Brenton Tarrant bought four weapons and ammunition online from the store.

He stressed the store did not sell Tarrant the high-powered weapon used in the mosque shootings.

A suspected white supremacist, Tarrant was charged with murder on Saturday and is due back in court on April 5.

Fifty people were killed and dozens wounded at two mosques in Christchurch on Friday.
