Michael Vance, Accused Killer, Live-Streams Escape From Cops
A man suspected of double homicide is on the run after allegedly shooting two police officers and a woman in Oklahoma.
Michael Vance, 38, posted chilling Facebook Live videos in which in he brandished a rifle as he drove away from cops after a shootout near Wellston, Oklahoma.
Police have issued an urgent wanted notice, explaining Vance is armed and dangerous and has a "disease" that he may "try to spread." News 9 reports this disease as HIV/AIDS.
In one of the videos, Vance said,
This is more intense than I thought it was going to be, to say the least. [...] I'm about to steal another car, like right now. This shit's gonna be intense. [...] Letting y'all know, look, this is real. See? That's a motherfucking gun. That's the real deal. This ain't a joke. This ain't a prank.
He said, "Everything that was said, it was all a setup," before acknowledging a woman in a bid to shift blame away from her. He continued,
She knew I would flip out, that's why she was worried about me getting out of jail. That's why she freaked out. I love you for supporting me and believing in me, and I know you didn't know nothing about this or knew that this was coming. [Woman's name], thank you for trying to help. I appreciate that.
Vance then warns, "This is the interesting part. This is where it gets interesting."
Lincoln County Sheriff Charlie Dougherty said Vance is accused of child sexual assault.
Police responded to an incident on Sunday evening that led to a shootout with Vance.
He injured two cops and sped off in a car. He then carjacked and shot a woman.
All three shooting victims are recovering in hospitals.
Vance is believed to have ditched the white Lincoln he carjacked for the gray Mitsubishi.
Two bodies were discovered early on Monday morning and are believed to be in connection with the manhunt, reports 9 News.
There are conflicting reports as to where these bodies were found, and further details surrounding their deaths have yet to be confirmed.
