La Loche school shooting: Teen charged with 4 murders

A 17-year-old boy has been charged with four counts of first-degree murder over a shooting at a school and nearby house in Canada, police say.

The boy is accused of killing two people and injuring several others at a remote community school of about 900 students in the province of Saskatchewan.

It took place on Friday (local time) at the school in La Loche, a mainly aboriginal community, 600 kilometres from the regional capital Saskatoon.

Two other bodies were also found by police in a La Loche home after the boy was arrested, police said.

La Loche acting Mayor Kevin Janvier said one of the victims was his 23-year-old daughter Marie, a school teacher.
