The Latest: Police: Officer wounded in shootout with Vance
LEEDEY, Okla. (AP) – A Dewey County officer was wounded during a shootout with an Oklahoma man accused of a string of crimes.
Federal and local police say that the officer was responding to a report that Michael Dale Vance Jr. was in the area when the officer was shot and wounded.
Dave Turk, spokesman for the U.S. Marshals Service in Washington, D.C., says the officer’s injuries were in the shoulder and elbow but were not life threatening.
Vance fled in a car after shooting the officer and was later shot and killed by a highway patrolman near Leedey, Oklahoma.
A massive manhunt for Vance began on Oct. 23 after he allegedly killed two relatives and shot two police officers.
