Vance, 38, was blown away by an Oklahoma state trooper near the sleepy town of Leedy, in the western part of the state. Vance had shot and wounded a Dewey County officer then escaped in a car earlier in the day, U.S. Marshals Service spokesman Dave Turk said.
A resident saw Vance's Mitsubishi Eclipse "partially concealed by tumbleweeds," near Hammon, Oklahoma. A Highway Patrol Capt. Paul Timmons said that he believed Vance had been living at a makeshift campsite near the town, which is about 100 miles from Oklahoma City, as the crow flies.
The wounded officer from Dewey suffered non-life threatening injuries and is expected to make a full recovery.
The police pursued Vance in a 30-minute chase when he was approached by the state trooper. "There was an exchange of gunfire between the state trooper and the subject, and the subject was killed," the young Turk said.
Vance, who will not be missed by many, was wanted on multiple charges, including two counts of first-degree murder. A search began after he shot and wounded two police officers with an Ak-47 on October 23rd in Wellston.
Liberals went crazy after the shooting, attacking the "assault weapon" and the Second Amendment with Dianne Feinstein saying "This wouldn't have happened if they made that military-style weapon illegal."
Sen. Feinstein prefers the Glock 19 and owns two such pieces.
Vance had HIV/AIDS and may have intended to spread the disease. He also recorded two live Facebook videos documenting his run from the law before going to the Wilksons' mobile home, investigators said.
After he was killed, the Oklahoma State Police unfriended him on Facebook but his page remains open.
Mark Zuckerberg said, "You just can't kick a guy with AIDS off of Facebook. It isn't right.
