A 44-year-old woman was in custody Thursday night in connection with a shooting rampage that left four people dead and two others wounded after a dispute broke out at a hearing for a small Native American tribe in Northern California, law enforcement authorities said.
Police said the two victims who survived the rampage were airlifted to hospitals
Rhoades was a formal tribal leader and allegedly used a butcher knife to attack one of her victims after she ran out of ammunition, according to a KRCR-TV report.
The rancheria is a federally recognized tribe of 35 Northern Paiute members, according to its website.
Most of the members live on the 26-acre rancheria in Cedarville, about 20 miles east of the tribal office in Alturas.
