OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Latest on the search for an Oklahoma man suspected of killing of his aunt and uncle, shooting two police officers and armed vehicle thefts (all times local):
Few details are emerging about the search for an Oklahoma man wanted in connection with the killing of two people and shooting of two police officers during a violent rampage that stretched across multiple counties.
Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Dwight Durant says the search for 38-year-old Michael Dale Vance Jr. is now being coordinated by the FBI.
FBI spokesman Terry Weber says his agency, the U.S. Marshals and state and local agencies all are pursuing leads, but that the early release of any information about the manhunt could jeopardize their efforts.
Messages were being delivered on electronic billboards across the state for motorists to be on the lookout for Vance, who was last seen driving a 2007 silver Mitsubishi Eclipse with an Oklahoma license plate of 943LQQ.
An Oklahoma man on the run in Oklahoma who is accused of killing two people and shooting two police officers is scheduled to appear in court in two weeks on charges that he sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl.
Michael Dale Vance, Jr., is facing a felony charge in Lincoln County of child sexual abuse after former conviction of a felony.
An arrest affidavit in that case says the teenager told Chandler police in July that Vance began rubbing her back and then put his hands inside her underwear, sexually assaulted her and started kissing her.
Court documents don't indicate whether Vance has retained an attorney, but he was ordered to appear on Nov. 7 with a lawyer.
Vance denied the allegations in an interview with police. He has been on the run since Sunday evening.
Authorities say an Oklahoma man who killed his aunt and uncle and is still on the run may have been shot during an earlier confrontation with police that left two officers wounded.
Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office spokesman Mark Opgrande says investigators believe 38-year-old Michael Dale Vance, Jr., was shot at least once by Wellston police on Sunday evening.
In a video that authorities believe Vance posted to Facebook Live after the shootout with police, he says "it hurts" and is wearing a shirt that appears to be covered in blood.
Oklahoma County investigators say they believe they found the same bloodied shirt at a mobile home in Luther where Vance's aunt and uncle were found dead, both nearly decapitated, later Sunday.
Oklahoma authorities are still looking for a man who they say posted live videos to social media during a violent rampage that included the shooting of two police officers, armed car thefts and the killing of his aunt and uncle.
An arrest warrant including two counts of first-degree murder has been issued for 38-year-old Michael Dale Vance Jr. of Chandler, Oklahoma. He's been wanted for more than 24 hours.
Oklahoma County authorities say they believe Vance shot and wounded two police officers Sunday night and then posted Facebook Live videos documenting his run from police. Police say he then drove to the home of his aunt and uncle and killed them.
In one of the videos, a man wearing a blood-stained shirt pans to a long gun and says: "This is real."
