Update on Quebec City Mosque Shooting

The Jezebel main page article needs a massive update, so I thought I would fill people in on developments.

Police now say there was only 1 shooter, not 3 as the main page is reporting. A suspect is in custody. Apparently he has openly admitted to police that he did it. He is 27 year old Alexandre Bissonnette.

A second man who was arrested is now considered a witness.

The Prime Minister and the leaders of the Opposition parties will be in Quebec City tonight for a vigil.

Update: Also, it would appear that the suspect was not particularly political until he saw Marine LePen on her visit to Quebec City last year. She seems to have radicalized him.
