A sheriff’s deputy was shot in the head by a man who was at a residence where he was sent to serve an eviction notice. David Wade, a deputy sheriff in Logan County, Oklahoma was shot several times including once in the face by Nathan Aaron LeForce, who Wade was serving an eviction notice to. LeForce fled but was picked up later by police. LeForce was not the subject of the eviction notice police say.
The video shows Wade getting out of his vehicle and walking toward the home to deliver the eviction notice.
As he approaches the home, LeForce is seen removing a shotgun from his waist and aiming it at Wade.
It is at this point that the video clip ends.
The sheriff’s deputy was there to give an eviction notice to another individual, not LeForce, according to News 9.
The eviction notice that Wade delivered was actually intended for a woman who lives at the property with LeForce, according to KFOR-TV.
Wade was able to fire, Logan County Sheriff Damon Devereaux said, then radioed in to headquarters to say that he had been shot. The sheriff said Wade was ‘a warrior’.
Deveraux said: ‘He gave his life serving his community, and I don’t think you can have a bigger honor than that.’
Devereaux said Wade had served in the US Army and described him as personable and funny. Wade was married with three children and had worked for the sheriff’s office about three years.
Criminals no longer fear shooting a cop and for that you can thank Barack Obama, Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch.
