LOGAN COUNTY, OK (KSWO) —  A Logan County Sheriff's deputy died after being shot by a suspect Tuesday morning.

Authorities said Deputy David Wade was serving an eviction notice, when he was shot by the suspect, 45-year-old Nathan Aaron LeForce. LeForce is now in police custody.

LeForce then drove away in the deputy's vehicle. Authorities said he may have carjacked two more vehicles. LeForce reportedly drove the deputy's car to Smitty's Gas Station near Coyle, where he carjacked a woman.

The deputy was shot at least three times, once in the face, authorities said. He was taken to OU Medical Center, where he later died from his injuries.

MULHALL, Okla. (AP) - Authorities say an Oklahoma deputy sheriff was shot and wounded by a suspect who then escaped in the deputy's patrol car.

Logan County Sheriff Damon Devereaux told reporters the deputy was shot several times, including in the face, while serving an eviction notice Tuesday morning near Mulhall, about 50 miles north of Oklahoma City.

The sheriff said authorities are searching for 45-year-old Nathan Aaron LeForce as the suspect.

The deputy's name and condition have not been released, but Devereaux said he was coherent and appeared stable before being taken to a hospital.

Authorities say LeForce drove the deputy's patrol car 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.
