Deputy Sheriff David Wade was shot and killed at approximately 8:30 am as he attempted to serve an eviction notice at a residence near the intersection of CR 66 and Midwest Boulevard, outside of Mulhall, Oklahoma.

He encountered three subjects at the residence and began checking their identifications. One of the subjects opened fire on Deputy Wade, striking him multiple times. The man then stole Deputy Wade's patrol truck and fled the scene. He then abandoned the vehicle and carjacked a citizen in a nearby town. The subject was taken into custody several hours later.

Deputy Wade was able to radio for backup after he was shot. He was flown to a hospital in Oklahoma City where he passed away several hours later while in surgery.

Deputy Wade was a U.S. Army veteran. He is survived by his wife and three children.

My condolences to his wife and the children. Many law enforcement officers are very brave and do a thankless job . Deputy Sheriff David Wade was one of those men. He look fear in the eye and did his job. We all wish that we are as brave as him. He is in God's hands now and all we can do is thank Officer Wade for his service and take care of his family that he left behind. 10-42 sir and may God Bless
