Federal and local police say an Oklahoma man accused in a string of violent crimes has been shot and killed.
 
Michael Dale Vance Jr. was killed in a shootout with a local deputy in Dewey County, Oklahoma, according to Dave Turk, spokesman for the U.S. Marshall's Service in Washington, D.C.
 
Oklahoma County Sheriff's office spokesman Mark Opgrande says Vance was killed near the town of Leedey, Oklahoma, 130 miles northwest of Oklahoma City.
 
Oklahoma Highway Patrol Capt. Paul Timmons told The Oklahoman newspaper that a deputy from Dewey County was shot about 10:15 p.m., but his injuries were not known.
 
Vance was wanted on multiple charges, including two counts of first-degree murder. A massive manhunt for the 38-year-old Vance began Oct. 23 after, authorities say, he shot and wounded two police officers in a town 35 miles northeast of Oklahoma City.
