Saskatchewan judge to decide whether La Loche shooter will be sentenced as adult or youth



The young man was just shy of his 18th birthday when he shot and killed four people at a school early 2016.

LA LOCHE, SASK.—A provincial court judge is expected to decide today whether a young man who shot and killed four people at a school and a home in northern Saskatchewan should be sentenced as an adult or a youth.

Judge Janet McIvor has been considering all the testimony and evidence that was presented to her during a sentencing hearing for the shooter last year.

The hearing was held in Meadow Lake, Sask., but McIvor is to make her ruling in La Loche where the shootings occurred.
