A teen has pleaded guilty to killing four people at La Loche high school and a home in northern Saskatchewan late January.
The boy, who cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, was charged with first-degree murder in the shooting deaths of two teachers, including Adam Wood of Uxbridge, Ontario.
He also pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the deaths of two teenage brothers at house in the area and guilty to attempted murder for wounding seven others at the school.
Mounties had arrested the 17-year old shooter at the school on January 22nd after he had been inside for about eight minutes.
RCMP say the building’s main doors had been blasted with holes. Students were hiding or fleeing the school and several had contacted police in a state of panic.
A noticed served by the Crown earlier this year asks for the killer, who is now 18, to be sentenced as an adult.
The maximum youth sentence for first-degree murder is 10 years in custody.
Adults receive automatic life sentences, and under a new provision for multiple murders, can receive consecutive periods of parole ineligibility of up to 25 years for each victim.
