Wade was transported by Mediflight to OU Medical Center where he was treated, according to information from the Guthrie News Leader, but later died from his gunshot wounds. Wade was married with three children and had worked for the sheriff's office about three years.

Devereaux confirmed that Nathan Aaron LeForce, 45, the suspect in the fatal shooting, was taken into custody.

Nathan Aaron LeForce is described as a white man wearing a black shirt with tattoos on his neck. Vincent said police used technology to track LeForce, but he did not give details of the search.
