Police say four people are dead and two are wounded in a shooting at an American Indian tribal headquarters in California.

Alturas Police Chief Ken Barnes says 44-year-old Sherrie Rhoades is in custody after allegedly opening fire Thursday afternoon at the Cedarville Rancheria Tribal Office and Community Center

Barnes says in a report carried by KRCR-TV that the four dead include a 19-year-old woman, a 30-year-old man, a 45-year-old woman and a 50-year-old man. The police chief says one victim is the tribe's leader.

Barnes says members were meeting about evicting Rhoades and her son from the Rancheria which, according to its website, is a federally recognized tribe with 35 members.

The station says that after running out of ammunition, Rhoades grabbed a butcher knife and stabbed another person.
