The Beltrami County, Minnesota, Sheriff's Office says one person is dead and are two seriously injured after a huge fight in a township east of Bemidji.

Deputies say they found a large group of extremely intoxicated people who were bleeding and in various states of distress Thursday night just after 6:30. They were at a residence in Ten Lakes Township, about 13 miles east of Bemidji, Minnesota.

Police say 44-year-old Leslie Headbird was beaten to death. Emergency efforts were undertaken in an attempt to revive Headbird, but he was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at the Cass Lake Hospital. Two other victims, a male and female, were also taken to the hospital with possible life threatening injuries.

A short time later, a suspect identified as 18-year-old Damion John Gullickson, Jr., of Cass Lake, was arrested after he attempted to break into a house, then tried to carjack a driver. A second suspect, Dora Jean Keezer, 29, of Cass Lake, was also arrested. Both suspects are in the Beltrami County Jail on 2nd degree murder and assault charges.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension Crime Scene Team responded to process the scene for evidence.
