The 27-year old suspect in a terrorist attack in Muslims at Quebec City during evening prayers was charged on Monday with six counts of first degree murder and five counts of attempted murder.
Condemning the Sunday evening attack on Muslims praying, Canadian Prime Minister Justin said attack was cowardly.
The attack left six people killed, five in critical condition while 12 worshippers managed to escape the chaos with minor injuries.
Police initially apprehended two men but later said one identified as Alexandre Bissonnette, remained a key suspect.
A handgun and at least two assault rifles were also recovered, according to Canadian media reports.
According to local news website TVA, Bissonnette is a French-Canadian student.
Authorities are considering this a lone wolf situation, a Canadian source familiar with the situation reported.
