Oklahoma deputies fatally shoot armed man at vigil for slain Deputy David Wade

GUTHRIE, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma deputies who had been attending a prayer vigil for a slain deputy, fatally shot a man who allegedly started to point a gun at them.

Sheriff's Sgt. Greg Valencia says Logan County deputies shot 64-year-old Marion Lee Holliday on Thursday southeast of Guthrie.

The names of the deputies have not been released.

Valencia says the deputies were responding to a report of a man carrying a shotgun when they found Holliday in a wooded area. Valencia says Holliday appeared "irate" when deputies tried to talk to him, and he was shot when he raised the shotgun to point it at the officers.

The report came while the officers attended a prayer service in Guthrie for deputy David Wade, who was fatally shot Tuesday while serving an eviction notice.

    Budget cuts have left many state agencies in crisis mode, including those who provide meals for many elderly people in Oklahoma county. The director of the non-profit Areawide Aging Agency says that before, they were able to absorb those cuts through furloughs, job cuts, fundraisers and even planting a garden with donated labor and materials. But now they say there's simply nothing left to cut except who gets food and who doesn't.

    Oklahoma Highway Patrol closed one lane in both directions temporarily on Highway 62 after a semi rolled over near Snyder. The highway is still closed at this time. 7News viewers David Navarro and Janell Rouse Holmes sent us these photos. OHP says this is happening between mile marker 65 and 66 about five miles east of Snyder. Right now, it's not clear why the truck rolled, if anybody was hurt or what the driver was hauling.
