The Red Lake County (MN) Sheriff’s Department says a Red Lake Falls man is dead and a woman injured in what is being billed as a case of domestic violence. Authorities say they were called to a Red Lake Falls home Saturday afternoon by a female who said she was assaulted by a known male. When deputies arrived they found 38-year old Heather Altendorf at a neighbor’s home. Altendorf was transported toSanford in Thief River Falls with non-life threatening injuries. The woman told deputies that 53-year old Kevin Salveson forced his way into her home and hit her in the face with the stock of a rifle – she fled to escape the attack. Law enforcement went to the woman’s home where they discovered Salveson dead of an apparent self-inflicted gun shot .308 caliber rifle at the scene. The case is still under investigation.
