The Worshipers were inside the Quebec City's mosque for the evening prayers when witnesses say two gunmen dressed in black and wearing ski masks walked into the mosque and started shooting. Frantic worshippers started calling 911 at 7:55 p.m., according to police.

A man known as Ali Hamadi revealed how he had left the mosque prior to the attacked, and how he was called on phone and being informed of the doom he had left behind  which claimed the life of his friend.

One of the alleged gunmen called police and turned himself in several kilometers form the mosque. Neither suspect was harmed in the arrests.

Quebec’s Integrated National Security Enforcement Team, consisting of investigators from the RCMP, the Sûreté du Québec and the Montreal police service, took over the investigation around 10 p.m. Sunday, when the shooting was determined to be an act of terror.
