EXCLUSIVE: Suspect In Homicides, Shooting Of Wellston Officers Posts Facebook Live Videos

Posted: Updated:
LINCOLN COUNTY, Oklahoma -

A man, wanted in connection to the shooting of two Wellston police officers and two homicides in Luther, Oklahoma, posted Facebook Live videos during the manhunt. 

The missing suspect, 38-year-old Michael Vance, is accused of shooting two Wellston police officers Sunday evening. Both officers suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Vance, who was at least shot twice, got into a patrol pickup and drove to a nearby mobile home park, where he carjacked a woman and shot her. The woman refused treatment at the scene.

Investigators think the suspect still has an AK-47.

Authorities said they found two bodies in a home near the Redbud Energy Facility in Luther. They later confirmed the two were Vance's family members. Vance is considered a suspect in this case, according to the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s office.

Early Monday morning, Beckham County Sheriff's Office responded to a reported shooting at the Flying J just off of I-40 in Sayre. 

The victim was hit in the thigh and taken to the hospital. The shooter, believed to be Vance, drove away a gray/silver 2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse with an Oklahoma tag 943LQQ. He was heading east or west on I-40, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. 

As authorities from multiple agencies searched the Vance, Vance posted two Facebook Live videos. We have attached those videos to this story.

Authorities also confirmed that Vance has AIDS and is willing the spread the virus. 

Law enforcement officials have established a hotline to deal specifically with tips regarding the search for Vance. That hotline number is (405) 246-9205 and will be manned 24/7 by U.S. Marshals.
