A 45-year-old man is in custody after he shot a Logan County Sheriff's Deputy, who later died from his injuries, on Tuesday morning in Mulhall.

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.

Kera Philippi said she had heard earlier in the day that Wade was still alive, but she did not know his condition. He was taken to a hospital, where he died.

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

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

Vincent said LeForce was found in a nearby outbuilding, where he surrendered to authorities.

Authorities say LeForce drove the deputy's patrol auto to a convenience store near the town of Coyle about 25 miles away where he stole another vehicle, which has since been found near Guthrie, but LeForce remains at large. It wasn't immediately clear what charges he might face.

A deputy was shot and killed in the Oklahoma City area Tuesday.
