Teen Sentenced to Jail for Canadian High School Shooting



A 16-year-old boy was sentenced to three years in jail for an April 1999

shooting at a high school in Taber, Alberta, Reuters reported Nov. 17.

The teen, whose name was not released, shot to death one student and wounded

another just eight days after the Columbine, Colo., shooting.


The youth pleaded guilty to one count of murder and two counts of attempted

murder in connection with the shooting at W.R. Myers High School. He will

serve his time in a youth detention center. After the teen is released, he

will be under supervision for seven years.
