(MENAFN -Arab News) ALTURAS, California: An eviction hearing at a Native American headquarters in Northern California turned deadly as a woman who once served as a tribal leader allegedly opened fire, killing four people and critically wounding two others in a gun and knife attack, authorities said

Cherie Lash Rhoades, a former chairwoman of Cedarville Rancheria, was taken into custody after the bloody attack at the tribal office Thursday afternoon, Alturas police chief Ken Barnes said in area media reports

Barnes said in a story carried by KRCR-TV that the four dead are 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 victim is the tribe?s leader

Police said tribal members were meeting about evicting Rhoades and her son from her home at the Rancheria which, according to its website, is a federally recognized tribe with 35 members

The station?s report said that Rhoades allegedly pulled out a gun and shot four people in the Cedarville Rancheria Tribal Office and a fifth person who tried to flee. After running out of bullets, authorities said, Rhoades grabbed a butcher knife and stabbed a person



One person escaped the building, covered in victims? blood, and ran to the Alturas police station to alert the authorities, the station reported

When officers arrived, Barnes said, the suspect was outside the building, running and clutching a knife in her hands, but a Rancheria employee helped tackle her and she was quickly subdued and brought into custody

Authorities said she faces murder and attempted murder charges

Police declined further comment in several calls from The Associated Press, saying they will issue a statement later

The stabbing victim and one of the shooting victims ? both women ? were taken to a Redding hospital where they were in critical condition, the Redding Record-Searchlight reported

Investigators said they found two guns but Barnes said he didn?t know whether both had been used in the shooting, the Record-Searchlight said

A person who answered the phone at a residence listed for Rhoades declined to comment Thursday evening.
