A Grand Ledge, MI, man who stabbed an elderly man outside a Quality Dairy store Tuesday after being refused service for not wearing a mask was shot and killed by an Eaton County deputy several miles away, Michigan State Police said.
An Eaton County deputy located Sean Ernest Ruis' vehicle at about 7:13 a.m. in a neighborhood several miles away on Jerryson Drive in Delta Township, MSP Lt. Brian Oleksyk told the Lansing State Journal. When the deputy made a traffic stop, Ruis got out of his vehicle and approached the deputy with a knife, Oleksyk said.
Oleksyk said the deputy retreated, ordered Ruis to drop the knife, and when he approached again she shot him. Ruis died in surgery at a Lansing area hospital, Oleksyk said.
