Dayne Fontaine (pictured) , 17, and his brother Draden, 13, were found in a home in La Loche, Sask., the victims of a shooting, allegedly by an teen from the community.


Alicia Fontaine's heart is broken.

Ms. Fontaine's two teenage sons, Dayne and Drayden, were shot and killed at a La Loche home Friday. Police say the alleged gunman was arrested after he killed two others at a nearby school, and injured seven more.

Ms. Fontaine, in a Facebook post, said her "heart shattered into a million pieces."

"So sad I don't have no more babies."

Brittney Lemaigre, a friend of Dayne's, said she had only gotten to know him over the past couple of weeks but felt as if it had been a lifetime. She described Dayne, 17, as caring and thoughtful. She said he could make anyone laugh.

"Why do the good die young?" she asked on Facebook. "Why does God only take the best? I bet you guys made heaven an even more beautiful place since you guys arrived."

Ms. Lemaigre said she will forever miss her friend and it wasn't supposed to be his time to go.

Norman Fontaine, the grandfather of Dayne and Drayden, 13, said he was close with both boys.

"Those two, I don't know, they were my best friends," Mr. Fontaine told the Saskatoon StarPhoenix.

Loren Lemaigre, calling himself a family friend, posted on Facebook: "So young and for nothing."
