Parolee accused of attacking deputy before being shot returns to jail
Waterloo (WSYR-TV) – A Waterloo man on parole who was shot after allegedly attacking a Seneca County Sheriff’s Deputy has been released from a hospital and returned to jail.
40-year-old Aaron Russ was treated and released from Geneva General Hospital and taken into custody on a violation of parole warrant and returned to Ontario County Jail.
According to the Seneca County Sheriff's Office, deputies responded to a call of an out of control man at a home on Premption Street on Thursday night.
They say Russ had removed an electronic ankle monitoring bracelet he was wearing as part of his parole agreement.
The deputy attempted to calm Russ down but Russ attacked him instead, forcing the deputy to use his taser, the sheriff's office said.
They say Russ then repeatedly struck the deputy in the face with a closed-fist.
The deputy drew his gun and fired two shots at Russ, striking him in his right arm. He was then taken to the hospital.
The deputy has been placed on administrative leave pending the completion of the investigation.
The Sheriff’s Office says they expect to file new charges in Seneca County against Russ.
