Suspect arrested in deputy’s shooting death

The Associated Press - April 19, 2017 9:31 am

Nathan LeForce

MULHALL, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a sheriff’s deputy shot while serving an eviction notice has died and that a suspect has been arrested.
Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. John Vincent said Tuesday that Logan County Sheriff’s David Wade died after being taken to a hospital for his wounds.
Authorities say 45-year-old Nathan Aaron LeForce shot Wade in Mulhall and then drove his patrol car about 25 miles to a convenience store near the town of Coyle. There he stole another vehicle, which has since been found near Guthrie.
Vincent said LeForce was found in a nearby outbuilding, where he surrendered to authorities.
Mulhall is about 50 miles north of Oklahoma City.
