Quebec City's Terrorist Attack Shooting That Killed 6 People (15 Photos)

On Sunday night, six people were killed and eight were wounded, after a shooting in a mosque in Sainte-Foy, Quebec.

The shooting has been called a terrorist attack by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who released this official statement about the incident:

“On behalf of all Canadians, Sophie and I offer our deepest condolences to the family and friends of all those who have died, and we wish a speedy recovery to those who have been injured.

“While authorities are still investigating and details continue to be confirmed, it is heart-wrenching to see such senseless violence. Diversity is our strength, and religious tolerance is a value that we, as Canadians, hold dear.

“Muslim-Canadians are an important part of our national fabric, and these senseless acts have no place in our communities, cities and country. Canadian law enforcement agencies will protect the rights of all Canadians, and will make every effort to apprehend the perpetrators of this act and all acts of intolerance.

“Tonight, we grieve with the people of Ste-Foy and all Canadians.” - Justin Trudeau
