QUEBEC CITY- Quebec City Police say several people are dead after 3 gunmen attacked a Quebec City mosque on Sunday night.
Unconfirmed reports say at least 5 have died, some say as many as 15.
Many others are also feared wounded, according to CBC’s French-language service Radio-Canada.
No conditions have been reported at this time.
A few dozen people were inside the Islamic cultural centre of Quebec in the Sainte-Foy neighbourhood when the shooting began just after 8 p.m.
Quebec City Police Constable Étienne Doyon said mostly men were gathered at the mosque for evening prayers.
Tonight, Canadians grieve for those killed in a cowardly attack on a mosque in Quebec City. My thoughts are with victims & their families.

Two suspects have been arrested according to authorities.
A large perimeter has been set up around the mosque.
CBC says in June, during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, a pig’s head was left on the doorstep of the mosque.
