The NYPD increased security at mosques in the city, following a shooting at a mosque in Quebec City that killed six people and wounded 19 on Sunday, police said.
“Critical Response Command personnel have been assigned to extended tour coverage at certain mosque locations,” the NYPD said in a statement. The agency added it is monitoring the situation in Quebec while working with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, AMNewYork reports.
"As of now, there is no specific credible threat to New York City. The NYPD continues to patrol sensitive locations throughout NYC," the NYPD said in a statement Monday afternoon.
