The man's friend, Nour Tavis, who was also at the Mosque, said they had been praying in the Al Noor Mosque when they heard shots and fled the building. He said: "When she heard the noise she wanted to go and make sure her husband was safe. "She got the bullet, her husband got away. She was gone, she was no more."
He added: "There was shooting and shooting and shooting.
"People were running and all of a sudden you saw them fall."
