Meanwhile, the Guardian also named security guard Faraz Tahir as one of the victims. 

He was "a cherished member of our community and a dedicated security guard who tragically lost his life while serving the public during this attack", the outlet quoted the Admadiyya Muslim Community of Australia as saying.

It comes after Ashlee Good, 38, was earlier named as one of the victims. She died trying to save her baby girl, who was also wounded, from the attacker. 

Good's family described her as "a beautiful mother, daughter, sister, partner, friend, all round outstanding human and so much more", saying they were "struggling to come to terms" with the tragedy.

And 25-year-old Dawn Singleton, the daughter of millionaire Australian businessman John Singleton, was also killed in the attack. She worked as an e-commerce assistant at White Fox Boutique. 

White Fox Boutique described Singleton on social media as "a sweet, kind-hearted person", adding it was "truly devastated by this loss".
