(CBS DETROIT) – An Eaton County Sheriff’s Deputy will not be charged in the fatal shooting of a stabbing suspect.

Prosecutors say the deputy was justified in using deadly force during a traffic stop after the suspect lunged at the officer with a knife and two screwdrivers.

Back in July police say 43-year-old Sean Ruis stabbed a 77-year-old man at a store over a mask dispute.

The man died after spending one month in the hospital.
