US President Donald Trump telephoned Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Monday to offer condolences after Sunday's shooting in a Quebec city mosque that left six people dead and several injured, Trudeau's office said.
"President Trump expressed his condolences to the prime minister and people of Canada following the tragic shooting at the Centre culturel islamique de Quebec," said a statement.
Trump also "offered to provide any assistance as needed."
Both police and witnesses initially described two masked men open fire inside the mosque, where about 50 worshippers were gathered for evening prayer, killing six people and wounding eight.
It was unclear whether police still believed two assailants were involved.
One detainee was arrested near the mosque, while a second surrendered himself to police and confessed to taking part in the killing, said Quebec police inspector Denis Turcotte.
Trudeau called the shooting a "terrorist attack."
"It is heart-wrenching to see such senseless violence," he said in a statement. "Diversity is our strength, and religious tolerance is a value that we, as Canadians, hold dear."
His office said he would travel to Quebec City in the afternoon, for a vigil.
