The Logan County deputy was identified as David Wade.

After the shooting, officials say, Leforce, 45, stole the deputy's vehicle and fled.

Jackie Robinson broke Major League Baseball color barrier 70 years ago today
Since 2004, every player and coach in the major leagues wears No. 42 on April 15 in honor of Robinson breaking the color barrier. Now 94, Rachel Robinson is traveling from the East Coast to attend the unveiling, along with daughter Sharon and son David.

The auto stolen from the convenience store was located Tuesday morning near Jaxton Road and County Road 77. Wade was taken to OU Medical's trauma center by helicopter, but later died of his injuries.

Robbins, who met Wade when he began attending Bible Baptist Church around the age of 10, said it surprised no one when Wade made a decision to go into law enforcement. There he stole another vehicle, which has since been found near Guthrie.

Law officers set up an area to search about 5 miles west of Langston between Midwest Boulevard and Post Road between east-west county roads 77 and 76, said trooper John Vincent, Oklahoma Highway Patrol spokesman.

It wasn't immediately clear what charges LeForce might face.

The Oklahoma City Police Department shared their "deepest condolences" to Wade's family on Twitter.
