Rep. Cynthia Roe, R-Lindsay, today released the following statement praising local, state and federal law enforcement for their work in finding the suspect wanted for shooting Cleveland County Deputy Sean Steadman and a bystander. The suspect, identified by police as Kameron Jenkins, was found dead Tuesday after a nearly weeklong manhunt. 

"I'd like to add my thanks and praise to the many that have already been expressed," Roe said. "I am so grateful for the swift actions of all law enforcement agencies who worked to identify the suspect and then participated in a massive manhunt. Their actions no doubt kept others from being killed or wounded. Their commitment to protecting Oklahomans and maintaining public safety is deeply appreciated, and their hard work and dedication is a standard to which we should all hold ourselves.

"I also want to thank local residents for their patience over the past week and their willingness to assist however they could, whether that was calling in tips or allowing law enforcement to use their property as a command post. Watching my neighbors come together was truly gratifying."
