Deputy shot, killed in Logan County

Oklahoma police are on the hunt for a man who took a shot at a law enforcement officer

Deputy shot, killed in Logan County

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

Wade was able to return fire, but Devereaux didn't say whether LeForce was hit.

The sheriff believes the suspect, identified as 45-year-old Nathan Aaron Leforce, may have carjacked two more vehicles since then.

Wade was taken to a hospital for treatment, but died from his injuries. LeForce is the suspect in the Tuesday, April 18, 2017 fatal shooting of Logan County Sheriff's Deputy David Wade. LeForce is accused of shooting Wade, who was standing in the front yard of the home, Devereaux said.

Deveraux said: 'He gave his life serving his community, and I don't think you can have a bigger honor than that'. The suspect then shot the deputy and stole the deputy's vehicle.

Langston, Mulhall and Coyle Schools were placed on lockdown as a precaution.

The manhunt for Leforce launched not long after OH authorities wrapped up a high-profile search for Steve W. Stephens, a man accused of killing a 74-year-old man on the street and posting a video of the homicide to Facebook.

LeForce was found in a nearby outbuilding, where he surrendered to authorities, Vincent said.

It wasn't immediately clear what charges LeForce might face.

A deputy was shot and killed in the Oklahoma City area Tuesday.

Emergency crews and law enforcement responded to the scene near I-35 and Mulhall in Logan County, north of Oklahoma City.
