Bissonnette was on both the Sainte-Foy and Université Laval chess club with his twin brother, said Université Laval professor Jean Sévigny, who said he knew Bissonnette and his brother through the club.

QUEBEC CITY— The police investigation into a shooting rampage at a mosque in the community of Ste-Foy Quebec that killed six people and injured 19 is now focused on one suspect.

Alexandre Bissonnette, 27, is the lone person police now have in custody.

The second man they had considered to have carried out the deadly assault is now a witness, Surete du Quebec said in a tweet Monday afternoon.

After initially saying they had two people in custody in connection with the shooting rampage, Quebec police — in a surprising reversal from their morning press conference— now say there is only one suspect.
