News Minute: Here is the latest Oklahoma news from The Associated Press at 11:40 a.m. CDT
LAWTON, Okla. (AP) - Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is on tap to address the largest annual gathering of the Comanche Nation in the state where one of his main rivals, Elizabeth Warren, was born. The 28th annual Comanche Nation Fair Powwow is set for Sunday evening in Lawton, Oklahoma. Sanders' appearance at the event may remind some of a touchy subject for Warren. She's been criticized for claiming Native American heritage, and the issue has continued to haunt her despite an apology last month.
ADA, Okla. (AP) - The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says a 29-year-old man is dead following an officer-involved shooting in southeastern Oklahoma. Investigators say the shooting occurred on Saturday during a domestic dispute in Ada, about 67 miles (108 kilometers) southeast of Oklahoma City. The OSBI says an altercation occurred and that shots were fired about 10 a.m., but it wasn't immediately clear if the suspect was armed.
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma kicker Calum Sutherland has been arrested on a public intoxication charge. Records from the Cleveland County Sheriff's Office in Norman indicate the 19-year-old Sutherland was booked shortly before 5 a.m. Saturday and released about three hours later. The fifth-ranked Sooners were off Saturday. Messages left with team officials and Norman police for comment weren't immediately returned. Sutherland, from Keller, Texas, hit two field goals last Saturday as the Sooners beat UCLA 48-14.
GUTHRIE, Okla. (AP) - A man who narrowly avoided the death penalty for the shooting death of an Oklahoma sheriff's deputy has been formally sentenced to life in prison without parole. A judge on Friday sentenced Nathan LeForce to life in prison without parole for the 2017 killing of Logan County Deputy David Wade. Prosecutors had sought the death penalty. But District Attorney Laura Thomas said one of the 12 jurors in the case refused to agree to a death sentence.
