Dearborn community holds vigil to honor victims of Quebec City mosque attack

DEARBORN, Mich. – Days after a terroristic gunman walked into a mosque in Quebec City and fatally shot six people, communities in Michigan came together to honor those who died in the attack.

The United Network of Islam invited the community to a candlelight vigil in Dearborn on Friday in memory of those who lost their lives. The attendees prayed and discussed the challenges different races and religions face.

Alexandre Bissonnette, a French-Canadian, was charged with six counts of first-degree murder and five counts of attempted murder in the mosque shooting.
