Oklahoma sheriff's deputy dies after being shot while serving eviction notice

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. Wade was taken to OU Medical's trauma center by helicopter, but later died of his injuries.

Authorities in Oklahoma are searching for a man after he shot a Logan County sheriff's deputy on Tuesday morning, stole a vehicle and fled from police.

Wade's Facebook page shows a beaming Wade standing with his son and wearing a T-shirt that says "My son is a Marine".

He says Wade was coherent enough after the shooting to give investigators information about the gunman. "I don't think you could have a bigger honor than that".

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, Vincent said.

A manhunt is now underway for LeForce, who allegedly stole a vehicle and fled the scene in a gray 2010 Mazda with Oklahoma license plate AEN-616. It wasn't immediately clear what charges he might face. Wade was married with three children and had worked for the sheriff's office about three years.

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