Oklahoma sheriff's deputies shot while serving eviction notice; suspect surrenders at Air Force base

Two deputies from the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office were shot and seriously wounded while servicing evictions papers on Monday, Sheriff Tommie Johnson said.

A suspect shot two deputies from the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office while they were serving eviction papers on Monday, then fled in a truck before surrendering at the entrance to Tinker Air Force Base, officials said. 

Oklahoma County Sheriff Tommie Johnson told reporters that the deputies first made contact with an individual at the front door.

"They went around to the back door and that's when the shooting began, shot the first deputy. The second deputy tried to get that deputy out of the way… of gunfire, and then he was struck as well," Johnson said. 


Both deputies were rushed to local hospitals for treatment and suffered serious injuries. 

The suspect fled the residence in a truck before dropping a rifle out of his window and surrendering at the entrance to Tinker Air Force Base, roughly 10 miles east of where the original shooting took place. 

Footage from a helicopter following the chase showed the shirtless suspect get out of the truck with his hands up before being taken into custody by several officers. 

The deputies were serving lock-out papers when they were shot, official said. 

"This was about as routine as it gets. These guys, what they do is they do lockouts and serve papers and that's pretty much all they do, and they do it extraordinarily well," Sheriff’s Office spokesman Aaron Brilbeck told reporters.
