A man walked in a Quality Dairy convenience store without a mask and was told that he had to wear one. An argument broke out between the man and other customers in the store, police said, and the maskless man — Sean Ernest Ruis — was refused service by store employees. Ruis allegedly pulled out a knife and stabbed a 77-year-old Lansing man and fled. He was pulled over by a deputy. The deputy approached the car, and he approached her with a knife, and she shot and killed him.
