LA LOCHE, Sask. — Leaders in a remote Saskatchewan community will speak today about the recovery from a deadly school shooting that happened almost a year ago.
A young gunman killed two teen brothers at a home in La Loche and then went to the school where he continued shooting.
He killed a male teacher and a female aide and wounded seven others before he was apprehended by the RCMP.
The boy, who was 17 at the time, pleaded guilty in October to two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of second-degree murder and seven counts of attempted murder.
His sentencing hearing is set for May.
A news release from the community that was forwarded by the province says a day of observance is planned on the anniversary.
The release says students won’t be in the school during today’s event.
