Quebec Mosque Shooting: One Suspect Identified As French-Canadian, One Of Moroccan Heritage

Update: according to Canadian authorities, Mohamed Khadir has been cleared of suspicion and is now considered a witness. This leaves Bissonnette as the only suspect in the shooting.
Following last night’s deadly shooting at a Quebec City mosque which killed six people and wounded eight, two suspects were under arrest and according to press reports have been identified: one is a French-Canadian and the other was of Moroccan heritage. One suspect was identified as Alexandre Bissonnette, a French-Canadian, the other as Mohamed Khadir, who is of Moroccan heritage although his nationality was not immediately known.
Reuters adds that at least one of the suspects in the attack by two gunmen was a student at nearby Universit Laval. Universit Laval is the oldest French-language university in North America, with 42,500 students.
