Four killed on reservationAn eviction hearing at an American Indian headquarters in North California turned bloody when a former tribal leader went berserk, killing four people and wounding two others, cops said.

Cherie Lash Rhoades, former chairwoman of Cedarville Rancheria, allegedly shot four people in the tribal office and a fifth person who tried to escape the mayhem. After running out of bullets the bloodthirsty woman allegedly grabbed a butcher knife and stabbed a person.

The suspect was “systematically shooting individuals,” Barnes said.

“This is like nothing I have had to deal with in my 25 years of being with the city of Alturas. It's just tragic.”

The two victims who survived the attack were in critical condition.

One victim, who had been shot at least four or five times and possibly stabbed, was out of surgery and in an intensive care unit, Barnes said. The other victim, who was shot once, was recovering after surgery.

The bloodshed began during a tribal meeting about evicting Rhoades and her son from her home at the Rancheria, which is in remote northeastern California, about 30 miles south of the Oregon border.
