Oklahoma deputy shot, suspect believed in stolen vehicle

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a sheriff's deputy shot while serving an eviction notice has died and that a suspect has been arrested.

Logan County Sheriff's Deputy David Wade was a married father of three, Logan County Sheriff Damon Devereaux said, addressing a crowd of reporters at OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City Tuesday afternoon.

The vehicle was later found and the suspect eventually taken into custody.

The gunman was identified by officials with the FBI's Oklahoma City division as Nathan Aaron Leforce, 45.

Authorities say an Oklahoma deputy has been shot following an altercation on Tuesday morning.

Logan County Sheriff's Sgt. Greg Valencia says the deputy was responding to a call in Mulhall, about 50 miles north of Oklahoma City, when he was shot in the face Tuesday morning.

He appeared to be stable, and he was flown to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Authorities across Oklahoma were alerted to Leforce's flight and instituted measures like checkpoints and search perimeters.

A manhunt is now underway for LeForce, who allegedly stole a vehicle and fled the scene in a gray 2010 Mazda with Oklahoma license plate AEN-616.

The injured deputy's name was not immediately released, nor was his condition.
