Teen gunman in La Loche school shooting had regrets
A teen gunman who killed four people at a home and in a school in northern Saskatchewan told police he had regrets about the shooting.
Dayne and Drayden Fontaine were killed at their house in La Loche in January 2016 before the shooter went to the high school, where he killed a teacher and a teacher’s aide.
The teen was asked in a videotaped police interview, which was played at his sentencing hearing Thursday, how he felt when he thought about killing the two brothers.
“I didn’t plan to shoot them, man. I already told you. They weren’t part of the plan,” he said, crying, in the video.
The officer asked him what the plan was.
He replied to go to the school and shoot the kids.
The teen was also asked what he would say to Dayne and Drayden now.
“Tell them that I’m sorry, man.” The teen has pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of second-degree murder and seven counts of attempted murder.
The sentencing hearing is to determine if the teen, who can’t be named because he was just shy of his 18th birthday at the time, should be sentenced as a youth or an adult.
Court has heard that Dayne Fontaine was shot 11 times – twice in the head – and Drayden was shot twice, including in the back of the head.
