"He was loved. not just by our staff, but by the community", Sheriff Damon Devereaux said during a press conference. "I don't think you could have a bigger honor than that". Wade was an Army veteran, Devereaux said. The stolen vehicle is a gray 2010 Mazda with an Oklahoma tag AEN-616.
Authorities said Nathan Aaron LeForce, 45, shot Wade in Mulhall and then drove his patrol auto about 25 miles to a convenience store near the town of Coyle.
Vincent said LeForce was found in a nearby outbuilding, where he surrendered to authorities. It wasn't immediately clear what charges he might face.
Police say a "person of interest" has been identified in the death of a newborn whose body was found in a trash bin in north-central Oklahoma.
