One man has been shot dead and another hospitalized with a serious stab wound over a dispute about a mask. This is only two days in Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s social distancing order.
43-year-old Sean Ernest Ruis was confronted by a 77-year-old man who complained Ruis wasn’t wearing a mask at a Quality Dairy store outside of Lansing, police said.
During the argument, Sean Ernest Ruis allegedly stabbed the 77-year-old man and fled the scene.
Michigan State Police has released video from a female deputy’s bodycam when she later attempted to pull over Ruis and he rushed her with a knife, leading to the 43-year-old being shot dead.
“Very unfortunate she had to use her weapon, but she saved her life,” said Eaton County Sheriff Tom Reich, according to USA Today.
“I mean, that’s the most important thing right here,” he added. “She had to use deadly force, and she did it properly, and I’m glad she wasn’t harmed in any way.”
The 77-year-old elderly victim was hospitalized with a serious injury and is currently in a stable condition.
The deputy – who is a 22-year-old veteran of the force – involved in the shooting has been placed on administrative leave as the Michigan State Police investigate the incident.
