MEADOW LAKE, Sask. — The Crown says it will apply to have a teen accused in a deadly shooting in northern Saskatchewan sentenced as an adult if he is found guilty.

A 17-year-old boy charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder appeared in court this afternoon in Meadow Lake, Sask.

Teacher Adam Wood and teacher's aide Marie Janvier were killed and seven other people were wounded at the high school in La Loche, while teenage brothers Dayne and Drayden Fontaine were found dead in a nearby home on Jan. 22.

The teen's case was put over to April 12 in La Loche.

Teachers returned to the high school today, but the front entrance to the building remains boarded up.

Education Minister Don Morgan says the doors through which a shooter entered the school are sealed off and a different entrance when students return soon.
