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.
