    A woman opened fire at an eviction hearing Thursday in northern California, killing four people and critically wounding two others, authorities said.

    Sherie Rhoades, 44, was held on suspicion of murder and attempted murder after the shootings Thursday afternoon at the Cedarville Rancheria Tribal Office in Alturas, Alturas Police Chief Ken Barnes said.


    The shootings occurred during a hearing at which Rhoades was being evicted from the Rancheria along with her son, the Redding Record Searchlight newspaper reported Thursday night, citing Alturas police. Alturas a town of about 2,800 in sparsely populated Modoc County, near the Oregon border.

    ALTURAS, Calif. (AP) — 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.

    One of the people she killed was her brother, the tribal chairman:

    "Though police have said they are still working on a motive, a nephew who lived with her, Jacob Penn, said she snapped under the pressure of her brother trying to evict her. The brother, Rurik Davis, who lived down the street on the Rancheria, had apparently taken over as tribal chairman and was among the dead."
