In wake of Quebec City shooting, Muslim leaders in Southern California come together

A gunman on Sunday night opened fire in a mosque in Quebec City, Canada, killing six people and critically wounded many more.

The suspect was later identified as Alexandre Bissonnette, a French Canadian with far-right, nationalist views. Bissonnette was charged with six counts of first-degree murder and five counts of attempted murder.

The shooting capped a frantic weekend for Muslims around the globe that saw the signing of an executive order by President Donald Trump to ban travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S.
