White_student_is_sole_suspect_2017-01-30_16-06-33.pngAttentat à Québec: la SQ confirme un seul suspect | Jean-François Néron, Guillaume Piedboeuf | Justice et faits divers – L’homme qui a lui-même appelé la police pour dénoncer son crime alors qu’il se dirigeait en automobile vers le pont de l’Île d’Orléans est Alexandre Bissonnette, un jeune homme qui a grandi à Cap-Rouge. D’ailleurs, les policiers ont visité dans la nuit de dimanche à lundi la résidence de ses parents, située rue du Tracel. Ils y sont retournés lundi matin.

Selon le bottin de l’Université Laval, Bissonnette était inscrit en sciences politiques. Il était auparavant en anthropologie. «Il était pratiquement dans tous mes cours. C’est un solitaire. Il n’a pas vraiment d’amis», raconte un collègue étudiant.

François Deschamps, membre du comité Bienvenue aux réfugiés, créé il y a un an lors de l’arrivée massive de Syriens au Canada, a reconnu la photo d’Alexandre Bissonnette publiée par Le Soleil. «J’ai fait le saut quand je l’ai vu», lance-t-il au bout du fil.

A second man, Mohamed el Khadir, was previously identified by authorities as a suspect. He was taken into custody near the mosque and questioned, but Quebec Provincial Police said in a tweet Monday afternoon that he is no longer considered to be a suspect. He is now being called a witness.

 

Police and politicians are calling the shooting a terrorist attack, La Presse reports.

The victims range in age from 39 to 70, police said. Only one, Azzedine Soufiane, has been identified publicly so far. A friend told the Montreal Gazette that Soufiane was a father of three young children and was well known in the community.


French-Canadian man is now sole suspect in Quebec City mosque shooting — Bangor Daily News — BDN Maine – QUEBEC CITY — University student Alexandre Bissonnette is the sole suspect in a mass shooting at a Quebec City mosque that killed six worshippers on Sunday night, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters.

A second person being held in connection with the shooting is now considered a witness and not a suspect, the source said.

Police said they were confident there were no other suspects involved in the attack.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau earlier called the shooting “a terrorist attack on Muslims.”

The shooting came over the weekend that Trudeau said Canada would welcome refugees, after U.S. President Donald Trump halted the U.S. refugee program and temporarily barred citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States on national security grounds.

Trump’s action was widely condemned in the United States and abroad as targeting Muslims.
