OFFICERS ARMED WITH shotguns and M-16 military rifles closed in on a home at Caddo in their final search for fugitive killers Claude Dennis and Michael Lancaster. Seconds later a gunbattle exploded that left the pair dead as they made a final dash for freedom from the Ernest Slack home toward a stolen pickup. They had 10 guns with them-including two taken from two highway patrolmen they had killed near Kenefic less than 20 minutes earlier. Photo and caption from the May 26, 1978 Durant (Okla.)
