In Memoriam Deputy Sheriff David Wade
Sheriff Damon Devereaux of the Logan County Sheriff’s Department in Oklahoma, sadly reports the death of Deputy Sheriff David Wade.
Deputy Wade was shot as he was serving an eviction notice on a male individual. Wade was struck in his chest and face. He was able to call for assistance and advise that he had been shot. When additional deputies arrived, he was able to provide a description of the suspect and the direction of travel as the suspect had stolen his patrol truck and fled the scene.
The suspect abandoned the patrol truck behind a gas station in a grocery store parking lot. He then carjacked a citizen and fled again. That vehicle was also located abandoned. Several hours later the suspect was taken into custody by troopers from the Oklahoma State Highway Patrol.
Wade was flown via Mediflight to Oklahoma University Medical Center in Oklahoma City where he succumbed to his gunshot wounds several hours later.
Deputy Sheriff David Wade is gone, but never forgotten. EOW: Tuesday, April 18, 2017.
