Alexandre Bissonnette Photos: Pictures of Quebec City Mosque Shooting Suspect

Two men were arrested after Canadian police say they opened fire on attendees of a Quebec City mosque Sunday night during prayers, killing six people and wounding eight others. They have been identified in local media reports as Alexandre Bissonnette, a 27-year-old Quebec native, and Mohamed Khadir, who police later cleared as a suspect and released. Little is known about the two men, who are both students at a Quebec City university, but more information has emerged so far about Bissonnette, through his now-deleted Facebook page. Police say they are still investigating to determine a motive for the shooting. A witness said the gunmen, who were wearing masks, yelled "Allahu Akbar," a phrase that means "God is great," in Arabic. They entered the Centre Culturel Islamique de Quebec about 8 p.m., and were caught less than an hour later. Police and politicians are calling it a terrorist attack, La Presse reports. The victims range in age from 39 to 70, police said. They have not yet been identified publicly. "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. The terror case is being led by the Quebec Provincial Police, along with Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Quebec City Police.

Right! You wish! The French-language newspaper Le Journal de Quebec reports. “He really liked Trump and had a permanent discontent with the left.”

He looks pretty young for a 27 year old. Something in common with other mass shooters.

The common thread among many of the mass shooters seems to be that they are in the liberal controlled education system. There is absolutely no question that these liberal teachers’ constant and relentless indoctrination techniques lead to violence.

I love that you say “absolutely no question” yet post no evidence whatsoever to back up your rather bizarre claim of correlation. As a scientist, with some understanding of psychology I’d love to see it.

BTM

No, I’m sorry it doesn’t work that way. He made an outlandish claim and I want sensible people that read it to know that he’s unable to produce credible peer reviewed data support his claim of correlation. And to be clear, some dudes website isn’t credible peer reviewed data.

“YOU LOOK IT UP” doesn’t cut it I’m afraid.

He made the claim, he can produce the citation.

Liberal controlled? Indoctrination techniques? Your not even a proper troll as that is the definition of right wing controlled education systems, and if it were any other time, they and you would be laughable.

Libtards are having libgasms that it’s a white guy

Funny when the Muslim was also a suspect, you didn’t hear a peep out of the media, somewhat like they didnt want to touch it, as soon as he was cleared, shabang!!
