It’s not a Muslim after all……….
“It seemed to me that they had a Québécois accent. They started to fire, and as they shot they yelled, ‘Allahu akbar!’ The bullets hit people that were praying. People who were praying lost their lives. A bullet passed right over my head,” said the witness.

Quebec provincial police say six people are dead and eight were wounded after shots were fired inside a mosque on Sunday night during evening prayers.
Sûreté du Québec Sgt. Christine Coulombe says the victims range in age from 35 to 70. Some of the wounded are considered to be in critical condition.
Thirty-nine people escaped the Islamic cultural centre of Quebec in the Sainte-Foy neighbourhood without injuries, according to Coulombe.
Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard said it was obvious that the shooting should be treated as an act of terrorism.
“It’s an murderous act directed at a specific community,” he said at a press conference just after 1:30 a.m.
“I think the majority of citizens, not just in Quebec but elsewhere, would describe it that way.”
