LOGAN COUNTY, Okla. — A deputy was shot and killed in the Oklahoma City area Tuesday.

The Logan County Sheriff’s Office said deputy David Wade was serving an eviction notice at a home when Nathan Aaron LeForce shot him multiple times in the body and face.

He said Wade was coherent enough after the shooting to give investigators information about the gunman. Wade was taken to a hospital for treatment, but died from his injuries.

Oklahoma City police said the suspect stole a vehicle and took off. The vehicle was later found and the suspect eventually taken into custody.

The Denver Police Department sent a message expressing its sadness over the deadly shooting.

Last year in Colorado, three Park County Sheriff’s Office deputies were shot while serving an eviction notice in Bailey. Cpl. Nate Carrigan, a 13-year veteran with the sheriff’s office, died at the scene.
