David Aurine & Mathieu Fornier Are NOT the Quebec City Mosque Shooting Suspects
A tweet appearing to be from a Reuters breaking news account identified the gunmen in a terrorist attack on a Quebec City mosque as two white supremacists, named David Aurine and Mathieu Fornier.
But the account is fake. Its profile says it is a “Parody that’s not actually affiliated with Reuters in any way.”
The Daily Beast is among the news outlets to say Reuters was reporting Aurine and Fornier as the suspects. Its report links to the CBC, but it is not clear if the CBC also fell for the hoax.
Police have not released the names of any of the suspects in the Quebec City shooting. Two men were taken into custody and a third is possibly at large. At least five people were killed and several others were wounded when gunmen opened fire during evening prayers at the mosque, in what officials have called a “barbaric” attack.
