Police say a 17-year-old has been charged with four counts of first-degree murder and seven counts of attempted murder in a mass shooting at a school and home in northern Saskatchewan.
The male can’t be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
Police say they were called to the high school in La Loche shortly after the lunch hour on Friday for reports of a shooting.
They say they were able to arrest an armed suspect after a chase through the halls.
Officers found nine staff and students had been shot -one woman, who was a teachers aide, died at the scene while a male teacher died in hospital.
They have been identified as 21 year old Marie Janvier of La Loche, and 35 year old Adam Wood of Uxbridge, Ontario, who had just started teaching at the school in September.
Police then went to a home in La Loche where they found 17-year-old Dayne Fontaine and 13-year-old Drayden Fontaine dead.
