Sheriff Damon Devereaux told NewsOK.com that Wade was an Army veteran. The deputy was serving an eviction notice at a home along Mulhall Rd., near I-35.

During that time, officials say the deputy was shot multiple times in the body and face by Nathan LeForce.

An Oklahoma sheriff's deputy was shot and killed while serving an eviction notice on Tuesday morning, leading law enforcement on an hours-long manhunt for the suspect before he was caught, authorities said.

LeForce was found in a nearby outbuilding, where he surrendered to authorities, Oklahoma Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. John Vincent said.

He was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon, FBI Oklahoma City confirmed in a tweet.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers also said they are assisting on a report of a deputy shot.

Oklahoma City police say LeForce allegedly stole a vehicle and fled the scene in a gray 2010 Mazda with Oklahoma license plate AEN-616.

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

He says Wade was coherent enough after the shooting to give investigators information about the gunman.

The injured deputy's name was not immediately released, nor was his condition.
