Early Tuesday morning an Eaton County Deputy was involved in a shooting.

The deputy observed the suspect in Delta township driving north and made a traffic stop. Suspect 43 year old Sean Ruis left his vehicle and violently attack the deputy with a knife. The deputy backed away repeatedly telling Ruis to drop the knive, but he continued his attack and she then acted in self defense.
