Six Fatally Shot At Québec Mosque

Last night, news broke of a shooting at a mosque in Québec City, Canada.  Six people were killed and eight others injured when two gunmen opened fire at the Grande Mosquée de Québec, while worshipers were conducting Sunday night prayers.  Shortly afterwards, the two suspected shooters were arrested, and have been identified as Alexandre Bissonnet and Mohamed Khadir, both students at Université Laval.  They reportedly shouted "Allahu akbar" during the shooting.

UPDATE:  Bissonnet is now called the sole suspect.  Khadir apparently has been called a "witness".
