Teen Charged Over Canada Shootings

A 17-year-old boy has been charged with four counts of first-degree murder after shootings in Canada’s western Saskatchewan province, police say. The boy, who cannot be named because of his age, is also charged with seven counts of attempted murder. Four people were killed and several injured after the shootings at La Loche Community School and another location, BBC reported. Friday’s attack in the remote community was “every parent’s worst nightmare”, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said. At a news conference on Saturday, Grant St Germaine from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said it’s a sad and difficult time, and no words will take away the pain and sorrow of what has happened. The RCMP said Dayne Fontaine, 17, and his brother Drayden, 13, were shot dead in a house. The gunmen then went to the school, killing teacher Adam Wood, 35, and 21-year-old teaching assistant Marie Janvier, the daughter of acting mayor Kevin Janvier. The suspect was later disarmed and arrested. The motive behind the shootings is unclear.
