A domestic disturbance in Alexandria Monday led to gunshots and an arrest.

At about 3:15 p.m., the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office responded to 700 Janes Circle Drive in Alexandria in reference to a domestic disturbance between a husband and wife.


Upon arrival, deputies learned that the husband had already left the residence.

It was determined that the wife was still inside the home and had allegedly brandished a firearm in the husband’s presence and at some point actually discharged the firearm multiple times in the home, according to the sheriff’s office.

Law enforcement agencies set up a perimeter around the house and started talking with the wife, telling her to come outside to speak with deputies.

A short time later, Angie Mae Rustand, 46, came out of the house and was arrested for domestic assault and reckless discharge of a firearm.

The sheriff’s office is continuing to investigate.

Assisting with the initial response were the Alexandria Police Department and the Minnesota State Patrol.
