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.
