Carjacking Victim Speak Out As Manhunt Continues For Double Homicide Suspect
LINCOLN COUNTY, Oklahoma - The statewide manhunt for a man accused of killing two people and injuring at least four others, including two Wellston police officers, continues.
News 9 getting more details about what Michael Vance did in the minutes after shooting two police officers and just before law enforcement officers said he killed his aunt and uncle.
Police said after Vance shot the Wellston officers with a high powered AK 47, he took their patrol vehicle and drove it to the Bear Creek mobile home park, all while broadcasting this actions on Facebook Live.
That's where he carjacked a pregnant woman and her husband and shot another woman.
In the video, Vance said he did what he did because he was arrested for allegedly molesting a 15-year-old girl.
He talked about stealing another car, and cuts off the broadcast just before carjacking Jonathan Chouinard and his wife.
News 9 showed Chouinard the video for the first time.
"He's pulling out right here. Yup, I see the white gate. He's pulling us over," Chouinard said.
At first, he thought Vance was a police officer.
“We pulled in and we literally stopped right here," Chouinard said, pointing to a spot in front of his house. “We seen his truck. By the time we get right here, he's already in front of us and he just gets up with the assault rifle that you see in the video."
Chouinard and his wife ran away as Vance drove off. That's when Vance spotted neighbors and opened fire on them, hitting Hollie Ahern in the leg and just missing her fiancé Thomas.
"Thomas told me get down get down. I got down, and then he said 'OK, we can get up' and I said 'Thomas, something hit me I think I got shot,'" Ahern said.
Police think Vance drove the Chouinards' stolen car to the home of Ronald and Valerie Kay Wilkson. They were his aunt and uncle.
Court records state the pair were brutally killed and Vance stole their car.
Valerie, who went by the name Kay, used to work as a waitress at Josephine's cafe. Longtime customer Steve Huddleston is devastated by the news.
"Gosh I…It just blows my mind that something like this happened," he said.
"The could easily that could've been her so we're lucky and blessed,” Chouinard said. “God was on our side and everything you say I just seen a video and it gives me chills."
