Thank you, deputy, for saving a man’s lif

To the Fayette County Sheriff’s deputy who shot dead a man with a knife threatening to kill a victim he had already cut, thank you.

According to The Citizen’s reporting, quoting an unnamed first-hand witness, the head was the only portion of the assailant visible, and it was close to the victim.

Deputy, thank you for practicing at the range, making the hard shot, and saving the victim’s life.
