Sheriff's deputy shot, killed while serving eviction notice in Oklahoma

Sheriff's deputy shot, killed while serving eviction notice in Oklahoma

Devereaux, who took office as Logan County's sheriff January 1, said it is common for one deputy to handle evictions, but also said "it takes once incidence to change the way we do business".

Authorities are searching for a suspect who shot a Logan County deputy and stole two vehicles Tuesday morning. Logan County Sheriff Damon Devereaux told reporters Wade was shot several times, including in the face. Wade was taken to OU Medical's trauma center by helicopter, but later died of his injuries.

He appeared to be stable, and he was flown to a nearby hospital for treatment. "You know, he gave his life serving his community and I don't think you can have a bigger honor than that", Devereaux said, choking back tears.

While serving that eviction notice, officials say the deputy was shot multiple times in the body and face by Nathan LeForce.

The gunman was identified by officials with the FBI's Oklahoma City division as Nathan Aaron Leforce, 45.
