Police: Man accused of killing 2, shooting 4 others in Oklahoma rampage may ‘try to spread disease’

LINCOLN COUNTY, Okla. -  A man accused of killing two people and shooting four others – including two Oklahoma officers – has a medical condition and may try to spread disease, an Oklahoma Highway Patrol poster states.

Around 6:30 p.m. Sunday, officers were called to reports of shots fired in the small area of Wellston, outside Oklahoma City.

Officials say when authorities arrived to the scene, Michael Vance opened fire with an AK-47, injuring two Wellston police officers.

The officers, identified as Officer Shaun Stewart and Officer Jim Hampton, suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

After the shooting, Vance allegedly stole a Wellston police vehicle and left the scene.

While inside the WPD vehicle, Vance went live on his personal Facebook page, saying that he was going to steal another car and it was “going to be intense.”

Vance later posted another video that shows him inside a different car.

After ditching the stolen police vehicle, Vance allegedly shot and carjacked a woman. She also sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

That woman's car was reportedly found at Triple X Rd. and Covell – where two of his relatives were found shot to death just before midnight.

Around 10:45 a.m., authorities found the bodies of 55-year-old Ronald Wilkson and 54-year-old Kay Wilkson.  Vance is the Wilksons' nephew, officials say.

According to court documents, Ronald Wilkson was shot with an AK-47.

He also reportedly had a large cut on his neck that officials say is consistent with an attempt to sever his head.

Kay Wilkson suffered similar injuries, authorities say. She also had a large cut on her shoulder area. Police believe Vance attempted to remove her arm.

Vance then allegedly stole the Wilksons' silver 2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse with an Oklahoma license plate, 943-LQQ.

Vance is either driving the silver Mitsubishi Eclipse or a 2014 white Chevrolet Sonic with the Oklahoma plate, 327-LIH, authorities told KFOR.

It is unclear how Vance would have obtained the Chevrolet Sonic.

Around 2:30 a.m., a man was reportedly shot at a gas station in Sayre, Oklahoma.

The shooting suspect matches Vance's description.

Police say the suspect attempted to carjack another victim, but was unsuccessful.

The 54-year-old man injured in the shooting was transported to a local hospital where he underwent surgery.

He is currently in good condition.

Authorities are still searching for Vance.

They believe he may have returned to Oklahoma County or Lincoln County.
