taxi Posted January 22, 2016 Share Posted January 22, 2016 Quote LA LOCHE, Sask. - A government source tells The Canadian Press at least two people have been killed in a mid-day shooting at a remote northern Saskatchewan school. RCMP did not release any details about what they called a "serious incident." The source was not authorized to speak on the record and requested anonymity. Premier Brad Wall issued a statement expressing shock and sorrow at what he called "the horrific events" in La Loche. He also thanked RCMP and emergency personnel who responded quickly. The shooting happened at the La Loche Community School's junior and senior high school building, which was put in lockdown. Mounties asked parents and residents to stay away. "We are in the preliminary stages of investigation," the RCMP say in a release. The Ducharme Elementary School a few blocks away was also locked down as a precaution. "Saskatchewan Education and Social Services will be available to provide all necessary crisis support and counselling services to the school and the community," Wall said. La Loche is a remote Dene community of about 3,000 people on the eastern shore of Lac La Loche in the northern boreal forest. http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/canada/cp-newsalert-northern-saskatchewan-school-in-lockdown-after-shooting-366237331.html Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
