Deputy shot, killed in Logan County

Posted April 19, 2017

A manhunt involving the Oklahoma Highway Patrol and Logan County Sheriff's Office ensued, with LeForce's capture occurring just before 2:30 p.m.

Authorities say 45-year-old Nathan Aaron LeForce shot Wade in Mulhall and then drove his patrol vehicle about 25 miles to a convenience store near the town of Coyle.

"So I ask that everybody come together and pray for everybody involved", Logan County Sheriff Damon Devereaux said.

The vehicle was later found and the suspect eventually taken into custody.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers also said they are assisting on a report of a deputy shot.

When back up officers arrived on the scene, Sheriff Devereaux says that the deputy was coherent and was able to give investigators information on the alleged shooter.

Neil Gorsuch was confirmed by the senate to the Supreme Court today, ending a bruising political fight that has lasted weeks. And in many ways the showdown had been pre-ordained, the final chapter in years of partisan warfare over judicial nominees.

Logan County Sheriff's Sgt. Greg Valencia says the deputy was responding to a call in Mulhall, about 50 miles north of Oklahoma City, when he was shot in the face Tuesday morning.

Oklahoma City Police and OHP swarmed the area with helicopters.

Nathan Aaron LeForce is described as a white man wearing a black shirt with tattoos on his neck.

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

The deputy's name and condition have not been released.
