Suspects In Quebec Mosque Shooting Identified

The two suspects arrested by Canadian authorities for the mass shooting at a mosque in Quebec have been identified by Canadian news outlets as Alexandre Bissonnette and Mohamed Khadir.

Mediaite provides the following details of their arrests:

Police arrested one of the suspects at the scene of the shooting. Per local media reports, the second was apprehended shortly afterwards when he called authorities distraught about what he had done and contemplating suicide. It isn’t entirely clear which suspect is which. Contrary to initial reports that perhaps three shooters were involved, police say all suspects are in custody.

Details about the shooters and their motive are still sparse, but authorities believe it was an act of terror. According to Fox News, Khadir is of Moroccan ancestry. One witness described at least one of the shooters shouting “Allahu Ackbar”– Arabic for “God is great”– and said that both had Quebecois accents.
