Sheriff's deputy shot in Oklahoma; suspect at large


Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. John Vincent said Tuesday that Logan County Sheriff's David Wade died after being taken to a hospital for his wounds. The stolen vehicle is a gray 2010 Mazda with an Oklahoma tag AEN-616.

According to reports out of Oklahoma City, the deputy was serving an eviction notice at around 9:15 in the morning when he was shot multiple times.

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

Oklahoma Highway Patrol, along with Sheriff's deputies and other law enforcement, were positioned near County Road 76 and Post Road believing they were close to finding LeForce in the area.

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

Wade was able to fire, Devereaux said, then radioed in to headquarters to say that he had been shot.

Oklahoma City Police Department's helicopter assisted in the search, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation's office out of Oklahoma City provided assistance at the scene of the shooting.

Nathan Aaron LeForce is described as a white man wearing a black shirt with tattoos on his neck.

The deputy's name and condition have not been released.
