Meadow Lake - A teen charged with killing four people in a shooting at a school and a home in Western Canada stared at the floor for much of his first court appearance.

The tall, thin 17-year-old wore an orange jumpsuit and had his legs and hands shackled as he was brought into a packed courtroom in Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan - a community about 350km south of La Loche, where Friday's shooting took place.

A teacher and an aide were among those killed in the shooting. Seven people were wounded. 

Two brothers were also shot to death at a home prior to the school shooting.

The teen, who can't be named under Canada's Youth Criminal Justice Act, is charged with four counts of first-degree murder and seven counts of attempted murder.

His next court appearance is on February 22.
