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 and had served with the Logan County Sheriff's Office for three years. He is survived by his wife and three children.

While I'm sure you don't know me, I feel compelled to leave this message. Once I saw this incident I was shocked! Deputy Wade was the 1st responding officer during a major traffic accident. A severely intoxicated woman hit our car. We did 360 spin, in the air, hit another car and a pole. Our 8yr old daughter took the impact rendering her lifeless. Deputy Wade came to my husband as he was performing CPR on my little girl. Fortunately my husband was able to revive her. When paramedics arrived and placed both of girls in a helicopter, Deputy Wade stayed with me. He was a godsend and did all he could to assist my family. I'll always remember that night and Deputy Wade.

Coming from a line of family in the justice system, we all share your loss. Our utmost respect, to your family. Hopefully you'll find comfort knowing that Deputy Wade's watch ended here in a physical capacity, but he will forever be watching and protecting your family from above.

We all wish you well and thank you for sharing his life with us. Just know that I'll never forget what Deputy Wade did the that day. May he rest in peace and may your family be comforted during this tough time.

Deepest condolences,
