Some early reports have indicated that the shooter was motivated by media coverage of previous mass shootings. I wonder how much he would have been un-motivated by the idea of meeting immediate, trained, armed resistance from the teachers and staff?
Royal Canadian Mounted Police said a 17-year-old boy walked into the school Friday afternoon with a gun and started shooting. They would not identify the suspect because of his age.
Police arrived, chased the shooter through the school and arrested him at gunpoint, said RCMP Superintendent Grant St. Germaine.
Police found nine people shot. One person died at the scene and another was taken to the local hospital, where he was pronounced dead, St. Germaine said. Seven others were wounded and taken to the local hospital or University Hospital in Saskatoon for treatment.
