The woman found dead in a downtown Detroit Lakes apartment died of "arrow injuries to the chest," according to the Ramsey County Medical Examiner.

The Associated Press reports the woman is identified as 69-year-old Geraldine Kading of rural Dent.

Around 3 p.m. Wednesday, police responded to the apartment on the 900 block of Washington Avenue for a welfare check when officers found Kading dead and a man injured.

David Lee Stensrud, 56, of Detroit Lakes, was taken by ambulance to Essentia Health St. Mary’s Hospital, Forum Communications says.

Authorities say the relationship between Kading and Stensrud is unclear.

Police Chief Tim Eggebraaten said there's no public threat and investigators aren't looking for suspects in the case. Sources tell WDAY that the incident was a murder-attempted suicide.

Forum reports Stensrud is a convicted sex offender and served 11 years in prison for criminal sexual conduct charges.
