A suspect in Sunday's mosque shooting in Quebec City that left six people dead has called police "to talk about his surrender," a senior police official said Monday.

Quebec police inspector Denis Turcottee said the young man called the emergency services line 15 minutes after the shooting Sunday night to say where he would meet with police.

The caller was believed to be one of two assailants who opened fire during evening prayers at the Islamic Cultural Center in Quebec City at around 7:30 pm Sunday (0030 GMT Monday).

The other suspect in the shooting was arrested at the scene.
