4 die, 2 injured in shooting at tribal HQ

ALTURAS, Calif. — Police said four people are dead and two others are wounded in a shooting Thursday inside an American Indian tribal headquarters in Northern California.
Alturas Police Chief Ken Barnes said that 44-year-old Sherrie Rhoades is in custody in Modoc County Jail after allegedly opening fire around 3:30 p.m. at the Cedarville Rancheria Tribal Office and Community Center
Barnes said in a report carried by KRCR-TV that the four dead included a 19-year-old woman, a 30-year-old man, a 45-year-old woman and a 50-year-old man. The police chief said one of the victims is the tribe's leader.
According to Barnes, members were holding a meeting on evicting Rhoades and her son from the Rancheria, which, according to its website, is a federally recognized tribe with 35 members.
The station said that after running out of ammunition, Rhoades grabbed a butcher knife and stabbed another person.
The two wounded people are being treated at a local hospital.
