LA LOCHE, Sask. – The father of a 17-year-old boy killed in a mass shooting in northern Saskatchewan says his son was a good kid. Gerald Moise’s son, Dayne Fontaine, was one of four people who died in the shooting Friday in the remote community of La Loche.

Dayne and his brother, who had the same mother, were found dead in a home; the two other victims were staff members at the local high school.

Moise says Dayne liked to go up north, hunting with his grandparents, and he liked to ride quads.

Moise says it’s hard dealing with Dayne’s death, but he’s trying to stay strong for the sake of his two other children.

Moise was at the cemetery where he poured gasoline on logs, which will burn to thaw the frozen ground and then the grave will be dug.
