It’s always sad to hear about any murder, but it especially hits many harder when it is a law enforcement officer killed in the line of duty. So many liberal Americans today have a such a negative feeling toward law enforcement that they fail to realize that these men and women never know if they will come back home to their families after a day of serving the community. I’ve had friends and family serve as law enforcement officers and every time they walk out the door, their spouses and kids never really know if they’ll see them alive again.
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.
Nathan Aaron Leforce, 45, was captured and in custody Tuesday afternoon after authorities say he fatally shot Logan County sheriff’s deputy David Wade and fled in a stolen vehicle, according to Oklahoma City Police and the FBI.
Wade was serving an eviction notice at a home in Logan County at around 9:22 a.m. local time (10:22 a.m. ET) Tuesday morning when he was shot multiple times in the face and body, allegedly by Leforce, Oklahoma Highway Patrol said in a statement on Facebook.
Our hearts are saddened to learn of the death of Logan County Sheriff’s Deputy David Wade. We pray for his family and fellow officers as they try to cope with this needless tragedy. Thankfully, the man who killed Deputy Wade was captured soon after and hopefully, he will be sentenced to death for his senseless crime.
