Manhunt for decapitation, shooting suspect continues
Authorities have been hunting for more than 24 hours for an Oklahoma man they say posted live videos to social media while running from police during a violent rampage that included shooting two police officers, armed car thefts and killing his aunt and uncle, apparently attempting to cut off their heads.
Michael Dale Vance Jr., a 38-yearold man from Chandler, Oklahoma, is wanted on multiple charges, including two counts of first-degree murder. Police say he was last seen early Monday about 30 miles from the Texas border in western Oklahoma — 165 miles away from where the manhunt began Sunday night in Wellston.
The two police officers were shot and wounded as they responded to shots fired Sunday evening in Wellston. The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office said one person was arrested, but Vance fled in a patrol vehicle. The officers’ injuries weren’t life-threatening.
