Michigan Man Accused Of Stabbing Man In Mask Dispute – Sean Ruis was identified as the Michigan state worker who is accused of stabbing an elderly man in a dispute over masks in Dimondale. Ruis was then shot and killed by a sheriff’s deputy.
Ruis fled the scene and was shot and killed by the female sheriff’s deputy after police say he advanced on her with weapons.
“Sean Ernest Ruis, a 43 year white male from Grand Ledge. The stabbing victim from Quaily Dairy was transported to a local hospital for his injuries…The female deputy is a 22 1/2 year veteran with Eaton County Sheriff’s Department and was not injured,” Michigan state police wrote in a news release.
Police say Ruis was not wearing a mask when he got into an argument with the victim, who has not yet been identified. Conflicts have erupted over mask-wearing throughout the country as COVID-19 numbers spike in some states. The stabbing victim is in stable condition at the hospital, AP reported.
We express our sympathy and deepest condolences to Ruis’s family today and in the days, weeks, months, and years that are to come as they cope with his passing. May his soul rest in peace.
