Domestic disturbance in Alexandria leads to gunshots, arrest
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.
