Oklahoma deputy dies after shooting, suspect arrested

Officials say an Oklahoma deputy who was shot multiple times while serving an eviction notice has died from his injuries.

Officials with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol told KOKH that a deputy was shot in the face and body around 8:40 a.m. while he was serving an eviction notice near Interstate 35 and Mulhall Road.

Authorities in Logan County believe the suspect is 45-year-old Nathan Aaron LeForce.

Devereaux said earlier Tuesday that Wade was coherent and appeared stable before being taken to a hospital.

"Deputy Wade lived like a warrior and he died like one".

Devereaux said Wade had served in the U.S. Army and described him as personable and amusing.

LeForce was found in a nearby outbuilding, where he surrendered to authorities, Oklahoma Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. John Vincent said.

A friend of Wade's who responded an Oklahoman reporter via Facebook said she once worked with him at Guthrie Job Corps.

The condition of the sheriff's deputy was not immediately clear.

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.
