RussFirst arriving deputies encountered Aaron Russ, age 40, of 2945 Pre-emption Street. Russ, a parolee, had allegedly just removed his electronic ankle monitoring device and was acting aggressively, appearing to want a confrontation with police. A uniformed Sheriff’s Deputy attempted to calm Russ down, but he became more agitated and attacked the deputy. The Deputy deployed a less lethal taser which had no effect on the subject. Russ began repeatedly striking the deputy in the face with a closed fist. The deputy drew his service weapon and fired two rounds.
