LINCOLN COUNTY, Oklahoma (KFOR) – A subject accused of killing two people and shooting two Oklahoma officers has a medical condition and may try to spread disease, an Oklahoma Highway Patrol wanted poster states.
Around 6:30 p.m. Sunday, officers were called to reports of shots fired in the Wellston area.
Officials say, when authorities arrived to the scene, Michael Vance opened fire with an AK-47, injuring two Wellston police officers. The weapon had a 100 round magazine.
Fortunately, the officers’ injuries are non-life-threatening according to a report by KFOR.
The officers have been identified as Officer Shawn Stewart and Officer Jim Hampton. They were shot in the lower extremities.
Vance allegedly stole a Wellston police vehicle left the scene.
After ditching the stolen police vehicle, Vance allegedly shot a woman after carjacking a man at a trailer park.
“A man just came off 66, pulled in front of some people, made them get out of their car. I mean, he had the gun drawn and everything and then, after he stole their car and was driving out, he shot a couple shots toward us, and I just so happened to get hit,” said Hollie Ahearn.
The bullet is still lodged in her left upper thigh.
Ahearn also sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
That stolen car was reportedly found at Triple X Rd. and Covell, where two people were found shot to death just before midnight.
Around 10:45 a.m., authorities identified the victims who were killed as 55-year-old Ronald Wilkson and 54-year-old Kay Wilkson.
Vance is the Wilksons’ nephew, officials say.
