Multiple deaths reported in shooting at Canadian mosque

T Mail reported that the person suspected of shooting up a mosque in Quebec City on Sunday night is Alexandre Bissonnette, a 27-year-old alleged Trump supporter with white nationalist leanings who would often troll a refugee assistance Facebook page.

Both police and witnesses had initially described two masked men opening fire inside the mosque, where worshippers were gathered for evening prayer.

"I strongly denounce the horrendous terrorist attack on a mosque in Quebec that left six people dead and many more injured", French President Francois Hollande posted on his Twitter account. Another 12 people sustained minor wounds, according to a local hospital spokesperson.

"We will grieve with you, we will defend you, we will love you, and we will stand with you, and over the coming days take solace in one another", the prime minister said. "This is barbaric", said Mohamed Yangui, the mosque's president who confirmed the deaths of five individuals.

"It hit us like a freight train".

"We are all Quebeckers. We are called to say again that, whatever our beliefs are, as human beings we are all brothers and sisters, all equal in dignity".

"Muslim-Canadians are an important part of our national fabric, and these senseless acts have no place in our communities, cities and country", he added.

"We've had an overwhelming support from Canadians wanting to help in whatever way they can".

"It is a domestic investigation at this time", said Royal Canadian Mounted Police Inspector Martin Plante, while shedding no light on the suspects' motives.

Classmates and activists who knew Bissonnette said he was an active supporter of far-right movements, who have targeted Muslim communities. "We are urgently waiting for answers as to how and why such a tragedy could occur". He was a father of three and worked in information technology for the provincial government.
