QUEBEC — A Quebec City hospital says two people shot in a mass attack on a local mosque Sunday night remain in critical condition while another three are now considered stable.

A spokesman for the Centre hospitalier universitaire de Quebec says the two most seriously hurt have “significant injuries mainly to the abdomen” but also have injuries on their arms and legs.

In a news conference Monday morning, the hospital said further surgeries are planned for those patients.

It also said the remaining three are doing “good” and are expected to be discharged shortly.

Nineteen people — all male — were injured in the attack.

The six people killed were between the ages of 35 and 60. Their identities have not been released.

Police have arrested two suspects, who are identified as Alexandre Bissonnette and Mohamed El Khadir.
