Sentencing hearing scheduled for Saskatchewan school shooter who killed four

A sentencing hearing is scheduled today for a young man who killed four people and injured seven others in shootings at a home and a school in northern Saskatchewan.

He was weeks away from his 18th birthday when he killed two teenage brothers, a teacher and a teacher's aide in La Loche, Sask., in January 2016.

A judge ruled in February that the young man, who is now 20, will be sentenced as an adult.

He faces the prospect of life in prison with no chance at parole for at least 10 years.

The shooter pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of second-degree murder and seven counts of attempted murder.

His name remains under a publication ban.
