    OK guys.

    Your splinter discussion could be hived off into another thread, thanks JoePa and Skypilot for effectively hijacking things.

    Update on the situation at hand. One suspect, one witness apparently.

    "Camo" is perfectly acceptable as a favorite colour.

    I just saw that too, I think we all need to cool down and let the investigation come out first.

    Sorry for helping the tangent.

    I have been hearing reported foreign origin and local origin wrt to the two involved. I'll hold the foreign country until official publication one way or the other.

    This is a deplorable act. This mosque was also targeted by someone placing a pig's head at the entrance.

    I would define a terrorist attack as a calculated use of violence against civilians in order to attain a goal which is political/religious/ideological in nature by instilling fear/coercion/intimidation. I would argue that this is a terrorist attack even without having the shooter's motive known. The shooter targeted the people inside a mosque during Ramadan. He has made a point to the Muslims in that mosque that they should live in fear (which will have far reaching reverberations across the country). If this was an Arab person attacking a Catholic Church during Lent, would people not be labeling it a terrorist attack? Both actions must be tested using the same litmus test.

    They now are saying that it is one suspect and one witness, CBC has pulled the names but the one person who was stopped on the bridge getting out of dodge was a a quebec born francophone, we shall see when they officially release the name.

    Yes, the public reporting has had the incorrect names. Or at least different from the names and origins I heard.

    True, we shall see what the official word is, I hope.

    If it is truly an AK47, it would take only a few seconds to determine that, the factory and country from the fire selector marks and the factory marks on the upper and lower.

    I find it odd that the type of rifle used hasn't been identified. The fact that it hasn't, almost suggests that it could be a prohib like the AK47, or 74. Subject to a secondary investigation as to how it was procured, and likely suspect questioning and follow up.

    Then again, not much data to go on either....

    Pretty easy for a cop, just look at the areas I mentioned.

    Maybe they have and simply are keeping the info close. It would be a legal liability to misidentify the murder weapon. That mistake would permeates all the way thru the investigation to the autopsy Mode of and Cause of Death.

    My money is they know, they just rightfully won't release that info early into an investigation.

    I just spoke with my brother in St-Foy and the word now is it was one "white guy" who did the shooting. He lives about 3 blocks from University Laval and the Police went through a house at the top of his street. Lots of students in his neighbourhood.

    Iím suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.
