Sheriff's deputy shot in Oklahoma, suspect at large

Sheriff's deputy shot in Oklahoma, suspect at largeā€

Authorities are searching for a suspect who shot a Logan County deputy and stole two vehicles Tuesday morning. He was taken to OU Medical Center, where he underwent surgery and later died.

Logan County Sheriff Damon Devereaux says the deputy was serving an eviction notice at a home along Mulhall Rd., near I-35.

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

Kera Philippi said she had heard earlier in the day that Wade was still alive, but she did not know his condition. Wade was an Army veteran, Devereaux said.

Leforce then allegedly stole the deputy's patrol auto, before driving it to a gas station and stealing another vehicle from a woman, the OHP said. Officials said he was shot multiple times.

LeForce was found in a nearby outbuilding, where he surrendered to authorities, Oklahoma Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. John Vincent said. Wade was married with three children and had worked for the sheriff's office about three years. It wasn't immediately clear what charges he might face.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is aiding in the search and Oklahoma City police have lent an air unit to the manhunt.
