Yesterday, three people, all of whom had previous criminal offenses, appeared in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada court accused of first degree murder; they allegedly killed two Mac's convenience store clerks during robberies at two different stores on Friday.

According to police, the victims were alone in their respective stores when the gunmen arrived. The clerks were shot dead, both within a short period of time, and the suspects left with a small amount of money. Karanpal Bhandu, one of the victims, was sent to hospital and died, while another, Ricky Cenabre, was found dead in the store’s storage room.

One 13 year old boy briefly appeared in court yesterday, crying as the proceeding went through. His name cannot be disclosed. The court is set to begin with his case on January 4 next year. The boy has previously been charged with illegally carrying weapons, including nunchucks and bear spray, and robbery.

Another man accused, 27-year-old Colton Steinhauer, is supposed to appear again in court on the 11th. He has allegedly violated his probation orders, and has been convicted of multiple crimes, including assault causing bodily harm.

The third man, 24-year-old Laylin Delorme, has repeatedly been convicted of crimes in recent years. For assault with a weapon he received six month prison sentences twice, once in 2010 and once in 2014, losing his right to own firearms. He has also previously been jailed for two years after being convicted of possessing drugs for trafficking. Delorme has previously posted images featuring firearms onto social media, including one captioned "ski mask on I'm coming for your ice, bare face I'm coming for your life"; Steinhauer has also posted similar posts onto his social media accounts. Delorme is also expected to appear court on January 11.

Edmonton Police Chief Rod Knecht said the murders were "absolutely unnecessary", "gratuitous", and "evil."
