COTTONWOOD, Calif. >> Authorities say a man with a rifle killed two people outside a Northern California store and a stray bullet wounded a customer.

Tehama County sheriff’s deputies arrested 32-year-old John Noonkester on Thursday. He remains jailed.

Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston says a woman called 911 shortly after 4 p.m. and said she’d been battered before the call disconnected.

Moments later, a shooting was reported in the gated Lake California community, 130 miles north of Sacramento.

Deputies found a 29-year-old woman and a 53-year-old man dead outside the store.

Johnson says a bullet hit a man inside, who was treated at a hospital.

Witness David Lewis tells the Redding Record Searchlight the gunman apparently argued with his ex-wife and her father.

Johnson only says the victims were related and knew the gunman.
