Grandledge, Michigan – A man was fatally shot on Tuesday by a Michigan sheriff’s deputy after stabbing another man who had challenged him about not wearing a mask at a convenience store, police said.

The shooting occurred in Eaton County, south-west of Lansing, about 30 minutes after the stabbing outside a Quality Dairy store, the state police’s Lieutenant Brian Oleksyk said.

A sheriff’s deputy spotted the man’s vehicle and shot him when he tried to attack her with his knife, Oleksyk said. The 43-year-old man died at a hospital.

The man had earlier stabbed a 77-year-old man outside the Quality Dairy when he was confronted about not wearing a mask. The older man was in stable condition at a hospital, Oleksyk said.
