TORONTO (AP) — Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says five shot dead, two others injured in a school in an aboriginal community in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan.

The grade 7 through 12 La Loche Community School in the northern Saskatchewan community of La Loche is in lockdown.

Brad Wall, the premier of the Canadian province of Saskatchewan, confirmed the shooting at the aboriginal community in the province. He said there are victims but did not say how many or release any other details.

The school's Facebook page says it will remain on lockdown until the Royal Canadian Police resolve the matter. It is asking the public to stay away.
