Six people were shot dead and eight others were wounded in a “barbaric” massacre at a mosque in Quebec City, Canada, police said.

Police and politicians are calling it a terrorist attack, La Presse reports.

While police earlier said two suspects were arrested, and witnesses reported as many as three shooters, authorities now say the only man charged in the shooting is Alexandre Bissonnette, a 27-year-old Quebec native.

A second man, Mohamed el Khadir, was previously identified by authorities as a suspect. He was taken into custody near the mosque and questioned, but Quebec Provincial Police said in a tweet Monday afternoon that he is no longer considered to be a suspect. He is now being called a witness. It is not clear why he was arrested.

Police said they are still investigating to determine a motive for the attack. Bissonnette was not known to police prior to the shooting, authorities said.

The victims range in age from 35 to 70, police said. They have not yet been identified publicly.

Few details about the Sunday night incident have been released. The shooting occurred about 8 p.m. at the Centre Culturel Islamique de Quebec on Sainte-Foy Street as worshippers gathered for evening prayers, CTV News reports.

“Why is this happening here? This is barbaric,” the mosque’s president, Mohamed Yangui, told reporters. He was not at the mosque at the time of the shooting, but rushed to the scene after calls from members of the community.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Canadians “mourn the victims of the cowardly attack in a mosque in Quebec. My thoughts are with the victims and their families.”

Philippe Couillard, the Premier of Quebec, said on Twitter that the government is mobilized to protect people in the city after the shooting.

He also said, in French, “Quebec categorically rejects this barbaric violence. Our solidarity is with victims, the injured and their families.”

A team of the SQ (Quebec Provincial Police), Quebec City and Royal Canadian Mounted Police, with the SQ leading, are now investigating the January 29 shooting.

This is a breaking news story and will be updated as more information is available. Here is what we know so far:


1. Witnesses Said the Shooter, Armed With an ‘AK-47,’ Opened Fire Upon About 40 Worshippers While Yelling ‘Allahu Akbar’

Witnesses told Reuters that two to three gunmen opened fire on worshippers inside the mosque Sunday night.

But police now say there was only one shooter.

Along with the six killed and eight injured, at least 39 other people survived the attack, police said.

A witness told Radio-Canada the shooter wore a mask, the CBC reports.

“It seemed to me that they had a Quebecois accent. They started to fire, and (while) they shot they yelled, ‘Allahu akbar!’ The bullets hit people that were praying. People who were praying lost their lives. A bullet passed right over my head,” said the witness, who asked not to be named. “There were even kids. There was even a three-year-old who was with his father.”

The mosque’s president said there can be up to 100 in attendance on a Sunday night. According to La Presse, children would have been in the basement, while the men would be on the ground floor and women on the second floor.

The gunman was armed with an “AK-47,” Le Soleil reports.

Hamid Nadji, who spoke to a friend who was inside the mosque, told the Montreal Gazette the scene was a “carnage.”

Nadji told the newspaper, “From what we heard over the phone, one person had a weapon discharged in his face because he had wanted to jump on the man to stop him. And the three others died because they wanted to catch the man.”

The shooter left the mosque to reload and came back. He then ran out of bullets a second time, reloaded and returned for a third round of shooting, Nadji told the Gazette.

After a previous hate crime incident at the mosque, also called Grande Mosque de Québec, its leaders said they had several CCTV cameras on the building. It is not clear if the video shows the shooting or the suspects.

The mosque has about 5,000 members and is one of six in the Quebec City region, the Montreal Gazette reports.

2. The Suspect Is a Student at a Quebec City University & Has No Criminal Record

Two suspects, Alexandre Bissonnette and Mohamed Khadir, were taken into custody after the shooting, police told reporters at the scene.

Khadir was later cleared Monday and released.

Alexandre Bissonnette, 27, is a native of Quebec.

A source told Radio-Canada both Bissonnette and Khadir are students at Université Laval, a French-language, public college in Quebec City. There are about 28,500 undergraduate students and 8,500 graduate students attending the school.

It is not known if the two men know each other.

Bissonnette was arrested about 14 miles away from the mosque, and Khadir was taken into custody nearby, the Washington Post reports.

Police surrounded and captured Bissonnette on the Île d’Orléans bridge over the St. Lawrence River, the newspaper reports.

“The situation is under control, the premises are secure and the occupants were evacuated,” police said on Twitter.

No other details about the suspected shooters has been released. It is not known if they were arrested without incident, or if they were injured.

A search is still ongoing for a possible third suspect, though police do not believe there is a third man involved, at least not directly.

“The investigation has not ended,” Quebec City Police spokesman Étienne Doyon, told the Toronto Star. “We will be trying to verify if there is a third or fourth or any other person involved. We’re not ruling out that there may be other suspects.”

Doyon said the suspects, who have not been identified, will both face murder charges.

The men were being questioned early Monday morning.


3. One of the Suspects Called Police to Turn Himself in Because He Felt Guilty

About 17 minutes after the first call of shots fired at the mosque, Bissonnette called 911 to police he felt guilty about what he had done, La Presse reports.

The 27-year-old man, who is a Quebec native, told the 911 dispatcher he was going to shoot himself. About 8:45 p.m., he told police he wanted to be picked up.

He parked his car, a Mitsubishi, on the Island of Orleans bridge, and officers from the Tactical Intervention Group arrived and took him into custody, the newspaper reports.

A handgun and two rifles that looked like AK-47s were found in his car, according to La Presse.

The bridge remained closed early Monday morning, the newspaper said. Authorities feared the Mitsubishi may have been rigged with explosives.

Police had shut down the entire area around the mosque by the time the suspect called. Another man, Khadir, was taken into custody near the scene.

A video posted to Facebook by the Centre Culturel Islamique de Quebec shows a heavy police presence at the scene.

Witnesses said at least 20 police vehicles responded, along with several ambulances.

Le Soleil also reported a large police presence at the mosque.

A large perimeter had been set up around the mosque, witnesses said.

In the live video, one of the men recording can be heard saying in Arabic, “he’s escaped. He was on his feet, he’s escaped,” the Huffington Post reports.

A second man starts to name people inside the mosque, but stops after concerns about worrying those watching the video.

According to the Huffington Post, one of the men can also be heard saying in Arabic, “This is the result of Trump.”

Police have not released a motive for the shooting, which occurred in a low-crime community, according to the Montreal Gazette.

Ben Abdallah, who often prays at the mosque but was not there during the shooting, told the newspaper “we never thought” such a “catastrophic” incident would happen there.

“But given the hateful speeches all around the planet, it can happen,” he said.

4. A Pig’s Head Was Left Outside the Mosque in June & a Video of a Man Threatening to Kill Quebec Muslims Was Posted Online in 2015

Muslims in Quebec have been the targets of threats in recent years.

In June 2016, a pig’s head was left outside the Centre Culturel Islamique de Quebec, the same mosque where the shooting occurred Sunday, along with the note “Bon appétit,” the CBC reported at the time.

The pig’s head was left during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. The consumption of pork is banned by the Qu’ran.

No one was ever arrested in that incident.

Mohamed Yangui, the mosque’s president, referenced the incident after the shooting.

In an interview with Le Soleil , he said police told them it was an “isolated act,” at the time, but “today we have deaths.” He said they had not received threats in recent days.

An Islamophobic letter entitled, “What is the most serious: a pig’s head or a genocide,” was distributed in the area around the mosque about three weeks after the pig’s head was found, the Montreal Gazette reports.

In 2015, a video threatening Quebec Muslims surfaced online, the Montreal Gazette reported.

The video, posted to Youtube in November 2015, showed a man in a Joker mask expressing frustration with Muslims in Quebec and saying if the government won’t do anything about them, he would, the newspaper reported. The man in the video also said he had a group of people with him who would help carry out the threat.

He can be seen holding a pistol in the video, and threatened to kill one Muslim every week, according to the Gazette.

Like in the pig’s head incident, no one was arrested in connection to the video.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau issued a statement saying he was filled with “shock, anger and sadness” after the shooting Sunday night:

It was with tremendous shock, sadness and anger that I heard of this evening’s tragic and fatal shooting at the Centre culturel islamique de Québec located in the Ste-Foy neighbourhood of the city of Québec. We condemn this terrorist attack on Muslims in a centre of worship and refuge. On behalf of all Canadians, Sophie and I offer our deepest condolences to the family and friends of all those who have died, and we wish a speedy recovery to those who have been injured. While authorities are still investigating and details continue to be confirmed, it is heart-wrenching to see such senseless violence. Diversity is our strength, and religious tolerance is a value that we, as Canadians, hold dear. Muslim-Canadians are an important part of our national fabric, and these senseless acts have no place in our communities, cities and country. Canadian law enforcement agencies will protect the rights of all Canadians, and will make every effort to apprehend the perpetrators of this act and all acts of intolerance. Tonight, we grieve with the people of Ste-Foy and all Canadians.

Quebec City Mayor Regis Labeaume said in a statement the city is “in shock” following the shooting.

“My first thoughts go to the victims and their affected families as they gathered for prayer,” Labeaume said. “Quebec City is an open city where everyone must be able to live together in safety and respect. I invite all the people to unite and to be in solidarity. Québec is strong, Québec is proud, Québec is open to the world.”

Mohammed Qudghiri, who normally attends prayers at the mosque but was not there Sunday night, told Reuters, “We are not safe here.”

He said he has lived in Quebec for 42 years, but is now considering returning home to Morocco.

“It’s a sad day for all Quebecers and Canadians to see a terrorist attack happen in peaceful Quebec City,” Mohamed Yacoub, co-chairman of an Islamic community centre in a Montreal suburb, told Reuters. “I hope it’s an isolated incident.”

Other politicians joined Trudeau in expressing support for the Muslim community.

“We know little at the moment, but one or two people have assumed the right to kill our fellow Muslim Québec citizens. When intolerance goes from debate to murder, solidarity is essential,” local politician Manon Massé told The Guardian.

An anti-Islamophobia group based in Quebec City said it has been urging authorities for years to address the anti-Muslim issue in the region, but nothing was done. It said the attack was preventable.

Francis Deschamps, an organizer of a refugee support-group in Quebec City told the Associated Press he is “not very surprised” about the shooting, saying he has personally received death threats after starting a refugee support group on Facebook.

He said right-wing groups are “very organized” in Quebec City and distribute fliers at the university and plaster stickers around the region. According to the AP, the French-speaking areas of Canada are less welcoming to immigrants and other religions than other parts of the country, which has brought in thousands of refugees from war-torn Syria and elsewhere in the Middle East since Trudeau took office in 2015.

Another group, the Islamic Centre of Quebec, told the Gazette, “This attack on a sanctuary where innocent people, including children, gather has shaken us deeply. It runs against the core values we hold as Canadians.”

And urged “the Muslim community to remain calm, united and know that the Canadian people stand with us in solidarity. We have faith that the great people of this country will stand and work together during this difficult time.”

Yangui, the mosque’s leader, said he was stunned by the attack.

“We have a very good relationship with the neighbors, with the community,” he told the Montreal Gazette. “There’s mutual respect – and now today we have this dramatic event.”

Vigils have been planned for Monday in Quebec City and Montreal, according to reports.

5. The Shooting Comes As Prime Minister Trudeau Says Canada Will Welcome Muslim Immigrants Turned Away by the U.S.

The shooting comes on the same day as thousands of protesters have taken to the streets in the United States to fight back against an order banning refugees and visa-holders from seven Muslim-majority countries.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has put out messages supporting Muslim immigrants and has said his country would welcome those turned away by the U.S.

Canada did not denounce Trump’s order, the CBC reported on Sunday, prior to the shooting.

“Every country has the right to determine their policies. I can only tell you that we will continue our long-standing tradition of being open to those who seek sanctuary,” Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen told the CBC.

Hussen did say that Canada would not be raising the number of refugees it will accept in 2017, despite speculation after Trudeau’s tweet that it would bring in more people, according to the CBC. Canada plans to bring in about 25,000 refugees this year.

There is no evidence to connect the attack in Quebec to the U.S. immigration debate.

  1. The press is calling Trump’s immigration ban a ban on muslims but what about the 46 countries with muslim majorities that AREN’T banned in his order? It is NOT a ban on muslims (although I wouldn’t mind if it was), it is a ban on ANYONE coming from 7 well known terrorist supporting nations. A list of 7 nations that barrack hussein obama himself came up with.

    • I take it you haven’t seen Rudy Giuliani’s comments on this topic. Trump asked for a Muslim ban, and they set it up this way to stay within the fringes of what’s legal.

    • No one should be surprised that most people view Trump’s executive order banning travel from 7 countries – all of which have Muslims as the majority of the population – as an ‘anti-Muslim ban’.
      Trump signed a document calling for a complete ban against all Muslims entering the country. He then back tracked a bit and changed it to ‘extreme vetting’ for Muslims.
      When he signed the executive order he cited two major acts of terrorism – 9/11 and the Sacramento shootings – both committed by Muslims, all but one who were born outside of the U.S.
      .
      Given that information, why would one not assume that this is a Muslim ban by another name?

    • As for the comment that the 7 countries were selected first by the Obama administration, that is true.
      The 7 countries are named in a law banning entry from anyone who was from or visited them after 2011 and did not have a visa for the U.S.
      The Trump ban just banned everybody. Maybe. No one really knows since it appears that the White House didn’t bother to plan the implementation of the executive order. Green card holders and Visa holders have had conflicting messages whether they can return or not. All what the order was to add needless confusion to the country when there was a law that certainly would have been sufficient for the 3 or 4 months to review the U.S. procedures

    • I agree. I wish people would stop using the word “ban on Muslims”.It is NOT a ban on Muslims and it is a TEMPORARY restriction on refugees from certain countries with terrorist ties At least until the govt has “extreme vetting” in place for the immigration from these particular countries. Most believe it is a 90 day restriction on these immigrants untill the vetting is in place.

    • Hmmmm, why would anyone think that Trump wants to ban all Muslims? Oh, that’s right, I remember now, because while campaigning for office in December of 2015 he said he wanted a “total and complete shutdown of all Muslims entering the country” and “folks we need to know what’s going on in there (speaking of mosques), there’s great anger in there and we need to know” Well, turns out he was kinda right, the “great anger” inside the mosque was some French-Canadian white kid shooting innocent people.

      • What the hell does a shooting in Canada have to do with a supposed ban in the U.S???? They are two different country’s dumbass!

    • Stay in your limits,first see garbage of terror in your country then blame others,Pakistan being the worst victim of terrorism be cos your RAW,stop throwing up your mess on others.

    • 9/11 hijackers were also from Saudi Arabia but the two countries where US terrorist came from are not banned.Why? Because Donald and Rudy do private business with them!! No US attacks by ANYONE from a country on the banned list. How is that keeping us safe?

      • Trump did not put pakistan or Saudi Arabia on the list because OBAMA did not have pakistan on the list. OBAMA and his administration compiled the list and since Trump has been in office such a short time, he used that list. Blame OBAMA for the list – or is Obama still blaming BUsh?

        • How very ignorant to think Trump can not come up with his own list. He has reasons for not putting the true threats on the list, and I am sure they are financial…

  2. This is the result of giving so much attention to liberals and celebrities that purposely try to make everything about hating Muslims.

    • Just to clarify. Are you saying that 6 innocent people are dead because too much attention is being given to people who are worried that Muslims are being targeted by hate groups?

  3. As for the Protesters across America, those people are just paid for Protesters /rioters by George Soros (a crazy liberal DemonRat whack0)! Those paid protesters/rioters will run out and protest /riot for anything that their group tells them too. Soros is just doing this to try to cause problems for President Trump! But, that won’t happen, too many people are onto this and Soros, and his nonsense!
    We have too many people across America pretending to be Far Left Loons and joining these Paid for Soros Protesters/rioters…..everyday we are getting the Truth and the Dirt on these Lunatic Lying Racist Race Baiting Liberal WhackJobs! They’re so full of it, and totally Brainwashed! They need to go get Real Jobs!! They wait by the phone to go Protest/riot and be good little robots….and he pays them too. Lmao!
    Notice how All these so called Protester/rioters all show up to things they dislike all at once! It is Never done Organically….it is more than obvious even without all the proof!

  4. The Shia and Sunni are bringing their war against each other on our shores now?!
    “Witnesses Said Gunmen, Armed With an ‘AK-47,’ Opened Fire Upon About 40 Worshippers While Yelling ‘Allahu Akbar’”

        • Unless you have inside information from the police, I don’t see how your statement is any less of a fantasy.
          I admit it may be possible, but that doesn’t mean that it is true.
          And the previous event – a pig’s head being left on the Mosque’s door step last summer – really doesn’t point to a different Muslim sect.
          Once again, that assumes that both were done by the same people.
          My point is that right now, we members of the general public DO NOT KNOW THE DETAILS.

  5. According to the Huffington Post, one of the men can also be heard saying in Arabic, “This is the result of Trump.”

    Wow, we know who is behind this now. Libtards in line with fake news media Huffpost are already planting “quotes” blaming Trump. They know no bounds.

  6. tHESE ARE NT MUSLIMS AND THEY KILL EACH OTHER

    BROWNSVILLE, Tenn. — Authorities say 10 people in western Tennessee were injured in a shooting at a party at a National Guard Armory.

    Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Susan Niland says the shooting in Brownsville occurred before midnight Friday when a fight broke out at the armory. Initial reports indicate that the armory was being used for a high school party, CBS affiliate WREG reports.

    Niland says the victims, including two juveniles and eight adults, were transported to Jackson General Hospital. Two are expected to be transported to The Med in Memphis with non-life threatening injuries.

    Niland says seven others were treated for injuries and have been released, or are in the process of being released. The scene at the armory has been cleared.

    The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the Brownsville Police Department are still investigating the shooting.

  7. First : people on that mosque were Shia or Suni ? Is secret or media assume everyone should know…
    Second : the criminal spoke Arabic with Quebecois accent ? Latest 2 terrorist attacks in Canada were comited by converts… they said is a religion of peace but required slain of infidels and new converts need to proof themselves like in criminal gang.
    Fourth : we don’t know who they are the victims. When someone enter a place, mathematically can shoot anywhere but most likely is possible to hit those who Usually are always there and, because are between first there, usually on the same spot (normal human behavior in a comfortable habitual routine)
    If the shorter new this was sure of the kill and media diversion with the association of this tragic event can perfectly hide the real reason for this crime designed to fit the “day major outrageous decision of a new president”
    Fifth : cameras, suspect calling to surrender… too much open simple and uncomplicated to really be so.
    I think the day when this crime was committed was just a window of opportunity to hide a message or activity

    • My guess is Sunni Arab and French Canadian convert too. Mosque must have been Shia or moderate Sunni?- this isn’t something Shia would normally do. I’d guess the convert gave himself up when he realised what he’d got involved in

      • I’m gambling that as well and hoping that is the case. Tragedy as it is, it sure would illustrate the need for the temporary ban. I think people protesting would do a 180! Maybe not though since they’re morons.

    • I think that most ‘lone wolf’ terrorists are no more committed to any given cause than school shooters are.
      They are people who have no purpose in life just pick up the first one that comes along that has any resonance, no matter how small, with them.
      Whether that is true in this case or not I don’t know.

  8. Well this is not good but last month I am 2 times beaten up by immigrants and my wife almost raped she was getting help from other ppl lucky so I totally understand it when you hate isalm

  9. Well, as Eastern European living in Western Europe, well, after all countries will have the next elections, you will see Nationalist, Fascist, Nazi, WHite supremacist governments rise, Europe getting militarized, maybe even accepting Russia, and in the end might even go to war with arab world, putting muslims in filtration camps and so on. There is a huge possibility for that. Just watch whats happening in France, Germany, Austria, Italy, Greece, Hungary, Finland at the moment, in all countries white-supremacist and nationalist parties are getting huge support, Poland and Denmark have already forbidden muslims to enter their countries for ove a year, some 5 to 10 years, and EU might have military budget that of USA.

    • They aren’t rising, they are just coming out of the wood works. Everyone accepts them as extremists, but they are in contest with left, communist extremist groups. I doubt it’ll get too bad, now especially, since we don’t have Governments afraid to say “Islamic Terrorism” anymore. I can’t speak for Europe, but in America we have checks and balances that will insure that we don’t do anything the people see as morally wrong– the UK seems to be in the same boat. The EU is too shaky right now to worry about a military budget, they have to worry about filling the gap the UK filled prior to Brexit.

  10. Go back. No one wants you racist Arabs in North America. You treat your women like trash, then you demand respect? That is comical.

  11. It would not break my heart if Trump did ban all Muslims. While most are fine, moderate folks, a religion rooted and based in death to infidels and death penalty for homosexuality is detrimental to the interests of the United States. Any moderate human being who expects inclusion by distancing themselves from the fundamental beliefs of Islam should be willing to disavow their religion altogether, or else they are essentially B.S.ing us and themselves by clinging to their belief that their God is an omniscient being who wrote a poorly crafted book and allows these religious travesties to happen. Our world is unraveling under the hands of the God theists worship.

  12. Did any of you actually read the facts presented above?? The shooter supposedly shouted ALahAkbar. Sounds like a muslim on muslim shooting, which is common with the fighting muslim sects. OR — maybe it was one of those nasty Christians who are always praising Alah.

  13. Can someone help me understand what could be the motive behind this attack? Why would two ‘muslims’ go into a mosque shouting ‘Allahu akbar’ and killing numerous fellow muslims? How would this help their ’cause’? Just trying to understand.

  14. There’s literally a muslim terrorist attack daily in the world. How does this make heavy.com and those do not? Has this become another pro muslim propoganda page set to take over our country?

  15. If you want to prevent this type of terrorism, then the only solution is to bad Islam. ISIS kills other Moslems because their victims are not “true” Moslems. All true Islamists strictly adhere to the vile words of the psychopath and self-styled “prophet” Muhammad. Islam has been a plague upon civilization for 14 centuries and it’s long past time to put an end to it.

  16. Hmmm… Three shooters. No – wait … TWO. Oh no wait, just one – and he’s WHITE. Yes, in the middle of this alleged “Islamophobia crisis” we have to make sure all violence associated with Muslims is non-Muslims against Muslims and sparked by “Systemic Islamophobia”. Nothing to see here… we have our WHITE shooter… I suppose the next time we have an honor killing in Canada we can blame Islamophobia for that too…

  17. Also interesting… comments sections on pretty much all Canadian newspaper sites are disabled for all articles on this incident…

  18. Precise comparison with the Charleston church shooting …pure hate crime and nothing to do with anything except that.

  19. Factors to Remember – Before you enter a dating website, make sure to read
    and view the foibles in the site you’re enter. The wrong ones could have plenty
    of fake profiles and use every trick within the book to part you along with your money.
    Throughout the 90’s gay online social media flourished to this kind of extent that it is now rare in order to meet a man without no less than one social network profile.
