    Not trying to be flippant, Also being Canadian and having moved to SK 10 years ago it surprises that this has not happened here before.

    The school would however have at least a couple of communities plus the children from the reserve attending would it not. A town of 3000 people would not have a school with 900 children.

    Reports just a few minutes ago on CTV that two of the shooter's siblings were killed at home.

    La Loche acting Mayor Kevin Janvier told The Associated Press that his 23-year old daughter Marie, a teacher, was shot dead by the alleged gunman. He said RCMP told him that the gunman is alleged to have first shot two of his siblings before killing Janvier’s daughter. Kevin Janvier said he did not know if the alleged shooter knew his daughter.

    “He shot two of his brothers at his home and made his way to the school,” said Janvier, adding that Marie was his only child. “I’m just so sad.”

    Sadly I knew this was coming.

    Now the total is higher than before the original 5 victims (but now we have two crime scenes).

    These situations are fluid, and I'm willing to allow officials leeway here. It's unfortunate it occurred this way, but entirely understandable

    Just so tragic!

    'Run, bro, run!' Teen describes moments after shots fired at La Loche school

    "We were going back to gym class, that's when I heard the first shot," he explained. "I looked back. He didn't see me, that's why I ran to the gym class, closed the door, and I ran in the dressing room. We stayed there for, like, three hours."

    Desjarlais-Thomas forwarded to The Canadian Press a screenshot of a chilling exchange that had taken place on social media a short time before the shooting between a young man and his friends.

    "Just killed 2 ppl," wrote the young man. "Bout to shoot ip the school."

    "Why?" asked a friend. "Why?"

    Many residents of the small community hunt and fish to support their families. Desjarlais-Thomas said it is not the kind of place where kids would expect something so terrible.

    "What I saw today was something un-ordinary," said the teen. "I just thought it was going to be a normal Friday and then, yeah, that happened."

    My understanding is that four people were killed (two bothers, one teacher, one assistant teacher) and two people were critically injured at two locations. I don’t think the total will be higher. But the details are so sketchy that it’s hard to be sure of anything in this case.

    Saskatchewan teacher named as one of four killed in Canada school shooting

    sorry I didn't see this earlier.... unfortunately, I would have to agree. It's such a remote community and it has had some issues before, just not to this degree. I cannot even imagine how they were able to handle this situation today, do they even have enough medical staff? Thank goodness for STAR's.

    You have been here for 10 years..... are you a Rider fan yet? lol

    That is possible, and I think probably not uncommon. That would be about two adults to every child. Unfortunately poor people tend to have a lot of children. It wouldn’t surprise me of some communities might have two children to every adult.

    “Her smile will light up the room on the darkest day,” said Sandie Janvier in a Facebook message, calling her the “sweetest caring person … We lost a loving sister today.”
    La Loche Community School is for pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12, and houses approximately 900 students in two buildings
    The annual suicide rate in the Keewatin Yatthe Regional Health Authority is the highest of any health authority in Saskatchewan. The area, which includes La Loche, Buffalo Narrows, Ile a la Crosse and other communities in the province’s northwest, averaged 43.4 suicide deaths per 100,000 people between 2008 and 2012. That’s more than triple the average annual provincial rate of 12.7 suicide deaths per 100,000
