RCMP officers have detained a suspect after reports of a gunman inside a school in northern Saskatchewan.
A source told The Canadian Press that at least two people were killed.

A STARS air ambulance from Saskatoon was dispatched to the La Loche area, according to the organization's Twitter account.
RCMP have not released details, but Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall posted a statement on Facebook about “horrific events.”
NDP Leader Tom Mulcair expressed condolences for those “affected by the shooting.”
My thoughts are with those affected by the shooting at La Loche Community School and @GeorginaNDP whose family members are at the school.— Tom Mulcair (@ThomasMulcair) January 22, 2016
