    Jan 24, Saskatchewan: A 17-year-old boy has been charged with four counts of first-degree murder after shootings in Canada's western Saskatchewan province, media reports said.

    According to police, the boy - who cannot be named because of his age - is also charged with seven counts of attempted murder.

    Four people were killed and several injured after the shootings at La Loche Community School and another location on Friday.

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said that the attack in the remote community was "every parent's worst nightmare."

    At a news conference on Saturday, Grant St Germaine from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) said the suspect would appear in court next week.

    He said that the days and weeks were going to be difficult as we come to terms with the impact of what has happened in our community.
