    Canada - Four killed, 7 injured in shottings, La Loche, Sask, 22 Jan 2016

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/saskat...an22-1.3416143

    School shooting reported in a community school in La Loche. Apparently reports of multiple shootings, and people in hospital for gunshot wounds. Reports of screaming, gunfire, on social media. An elementary school nearby is also on lockdown, but mainly due to precaution rather than shooting in that school.

    Story is new, information is just coming in.

    Official statement from Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall:

    "Words cannot express my shock and sorrow at the horrific events today in La Loche. My thoughts and prayers are with all the victims, their families and friends and all the people of the community.

    Thank you to the RCMP and all the emergency personnel who responded quickly to the shootings. Saskatchewan Education and Social Services will be available to provide all necessary crisis support and counselling services to the school and the community."

    On Twitter I am seeing multiple reports of "two dead" but I cannot find a verifiable news source, so I won't post until I find that information. Edit: I found at least one news source stating that two individuals are deceased:

    At least two dead, suspect held in Canada school shooting: report


    At least two people were killed in a shooting at a school in remote La Loche, Saskatchewan, on Friday and a suspect is in custody, the Star Phoenix newspaper reported, citing a local aboriginal chief.

    Canadian police declined to confirm to Reuters that there was a shooting, but said they were on scene for a serious incident.

    A hospital nurse said a number of people were being treated for gunshot wounds, CBC News reported. The La Loche Health Centre and Hospital declined to comment when contacted by Reuters.

    La Loche population only around 2600+ .. hope their hospital is able to deal with an incident of this nature.

    reporter says "that number could change" (but not sure if that's his own opinion or due to inside knowledge)

    Reportedly the suspect is in custody.

    About the school: "The school provides a prekindergarten to grade 12 education and houses about 900 students in two buildings."

    The incident started in a place called the "Dene Building." The way articles have been worded imply that perhaps the shooter never moved from the Dene Building.

    Weird re the suspect in custody .. they're still saying school is on lockdown.

    CBC reporting that PM Trudeau in Switzerland but will be speaking on the matter momentarily.

    Just wanted to add, many people on social media are saying that this is a rare and unexpected event for Canada, and I agree. This is highly unusual for Canada and for this region of Canada, as well. Gun laws are strict here, and there seems to be less 'rampage' incidents here for a variety of reasons. So an event like this stands out, and is incredibly shocking.

    Yes PM Trudeau said five are dead. I can't find another source. I can only hope he misspoke and it remains two.

    ETA: dotr posted a source below. I think the number of fatalities may indeed be five now. This is very sad, especially for such a small community.
