DETROIT (AP) — Police say a Michigan sheriff’s deputy fatally shot a man suspected of stabbing another man who had challenged him about not wearing a mask inside a store. The shooting occurred in Eaton County, near Lansing, Michigan, about 30 minutes after the stabbing inside a Quality Dairy store. State police say a sheriff’s deputy spotted the man’s vehicle and shot 43-year-old Sean Ruis when he tried to attack her. He was holding a screwdriver and knives. Ruis died at a hospital. The 77-year-old stabbing victim is stable. Michigan’s governor has ordered people to wear masks in stores to reduce the risk of spreading the coronavirus.
NOVI, Mich. (AP) — The first female to publicly say she was sexually abused by a team doctor at the University of Michigan says she hopes to inspire other women and men to come forward. Cathy Kalahar played tennis for the Wolverines in the 1970s. She has joined hundreds of Michigan graduates who allege doctor Robert Anderson molested them. Anderson died in 2008. Kalahar told The Associated Press on Monday that Anderson assaulted her during an exam when she was a freshman in 1973. She says a school counselor dismissed her complaint about the assault as a “sexual fantasy.”
EASTPOINTE, Mich. (AP) — A man in suburban Detroit was given the wrong lottery ticket. But there was no mistake about the result: a $2 million winner. The Michigan Lottery says the man stopped at a gas station in Eastpointe to put air in a tire. The man needed change for the air machine and also asked for a $10 Lucky 7′s scratch-off ticket. The clerk mistakenly gave him a $20 ticket but quickly offered to exchange it. The 57-year-old man decided to keep it— and won. He decided to take a lump sum of about $1.3 million instead of $2 million spread over many years
LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has extended Michigan’s coronavirus emergency declaration through Aug. 11, citing an uptick in new cases over the past three weeks. The move Tuesday allows the governor to keep in place orders designed to curb COVID-19, including certain business closures, limits on gatherings, a mask requirement and longer unemployment benefits. She points to Michigan’s death toll — 6,236 confirmed and probable deaths. Whitmer first issued an emergency declaration in March. Sheriff’s deputies in Michigan’s third-largest county, meanwhile, will respond to business complaints about customers not wearing masks but will not be actively enforcing the governor’s new, tougher order.
