APTN National News
OTTAWA—On Friday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will visit the Dene community of La Loche, Sask., which is still grieving from a shooting that left four people dead.

A 17-year-old youth has been charged in connection with the killings which occurred at two separate locations—a residence and the school—in the community on Jan. 22.

Two of the dead, Dayne Fontaine, 17, and Drayden Fontaine, 13, were found dead at the residence. Teacher Adam Wood, 35, and school assistant Marie Janvier, 21, were shot at the school.

The shooting also left at least seven people injured.

Trudeau’s office announced Thursday morning the prime minister would be visiting the community, but provided no other details.

La Loche is a remote Dene community of about 3,000 people and sits on the eastern shore of Lac La Loche in the northern boreal forest of Saskatchewan.
