Quebec mosque shooter identified

550

UPDATE: CNN

Quebec City (CNN)The suspect charged with murder in Sunday’s shooting that left six people dead at a Quebec City mosque was a “lone wolf,” Canadian Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said Monday.

Alexandre Bissonnette was identified as the person who opened fire at the Quebec Islamic Cultural Center, according to a source with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and a Quebec City court clerk.
Bissonnette faces six counts of first-degree murder and five attempted murder charges, according to the verified Twitter account of the Quebec Royal Canadian Mounted Police. He was a student at Laval University in Quebec City, according to the school.

The Canadian police states that they only consider one of the detained men as a suspect, while the other is considered a witness:

One of two gunmen who shouted “Allahu akbar!” as they opened fire at a mosque in Quebec City was of Moroccan origin, a witness and local media reported Monday, revealing the first details about the attackers in the massacre that killed six men. Was it Sunni versus Shia? Or disgruntled mosque attendees?

The Islamic supremacists and their leftist lapdog apologists who blamed Trump and “islamophobia” are further revealed for the liars and dissembling that they are.

Suspect in Quebec mosque terror attack was of Moroccan origin, reports show

FOX News, January 30, 2017:
“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 Quebec located in the Ste-Foy neighborhood of the city of Quebec,” Trudeau said in a statement. “Muslim-Canadians are an important part of our national fabric, and these senseless acts have no place in our communities, cities and country.”

The gunfire started at the Islamic center at around 8 p.m., Le Journal de Quebec reported. More than 50 people were attending prayer service at the time of the shooting. The center’s president Mohamed Yangui said the shooters reloaded at least three times.

Police ramped up security at mosques across the country after the massacre.

An unidentified man looking for his friends, who were regular attendees of evening prayers, told Le Journal de Quebec, “I’ve tried to reach them, but I cannot. It’s terrible.”

The French-speaking province of Quebec has been embroiled in a lengthy debate about race and religious accommodation. The previous separatist government of the province called for a ban on ostentatious religious symbols such as the hijab in public institutions.

The CBC reported that someone left a pig’s head on the mosque’s doorstep this past June, during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. Islam’s holy book, the Koran, forbids them from consuming pork.

“We were told that it was an isolated act, but today we have deaths,” Yangui told reporters. “It is minutes and hours of terror and anguish.”

In the U.S., the NYPD said in a statement that officers have been told to give “special attention” to mosques in the area. Police said they were monitoring the situation in Quebec.
