Oklahoma deputy shot, suspect believed in stolen vehicle

Posted April 19, 2017

A Logan County Sheriff's deputy serving an eviction notice at 9:22 a.m. Tuesday was shot at least twice near Mulhall Road, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. Wade was taken to OU Medical's trauma center by helicopter, but later died of his injuries.

Logan County Sheriff Damon Devereaux told NBC affiliate KFOR that the deputy was able to radio for help and gave investigators important details about the suspect.

Officials told our affiliates KFOR that deputy was shot multiple times near I-35 and Mulhall Road in Logan County, Oklahoma.

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

The Oklahoma City Police Department said on Twitter that they offered their "deepest condolences" to Wade's family.

Devereaux said Wade had served in the U.S. Army and described him as personable and amusing. Deputy David Wade was shot multiple times in the chest and face. Wade was married with three children and had worked for the sheriff's office about three years. There he stole another vehicle, which has since been found near Guthrie.

Devereaux said LeForce would now be interviewed to get his version of events.

Oklahoma City Police and OHP swarmed the area with helicopters.
