He added he was unsure of the number of victims because they’ve have been taken to different hospitals in the city.

Police have set up a perimeter around the mosque and a number of ambulances are outside the Islamic cultural centre of Quebec in the Sainte-Foy neighbourhood as paramedics try to help the wounded.

A witness claimed there were about 40 people inside the mosque at the time of the shooting.

Maged El Makssoud lost friends in the gun attack, he said: “We are shocked, I hope that it is an isolated attack. It is a shame for the town, for the country, for the citizens and not just the Muslims because we love our town. We share the same values and we have a good life here.”



Police have closed roads around the city and claim they have arrested two suspects.

They do not believe anyone else was involved in the attack.
