LINCOLN COUNTY, Okla. (KFOR) – Authorities are still searching for a man accused of shooting two Oklahoma police officers.

Around 6:30 p.m. Sunday, officers were called to reports of a 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.

Vance then 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 Covel, where two people were found dead just after midnight.

Police believe that is where Vance stole a silver 2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse with an Oklahoma license plate.

Authorities also believe Vance is also connected to a shooting in Beckham County.

He was last reported to be driving westbound on I-40 near Sayre, Oklahoma, around 2:30 a.m.

If you know of his whereabouts, call police immediately.

Do not approach the suspect.

He is considered armed and dangerous.

Police say Vance has been shot at least twice.

He was recently released from jail after being arrested for sexually assaulting a child.
