Yet another jihad attack in the U.S. Watch for the spin, the denial, and the obfuscation. Watch for stories about how Oklahoma Muslims are afraid of a “backlash.” Watch for the coming mainstream media reports about how the Vaughan Foods plant was rife with “Islamophobia.” Not that this has anything to do with Islam, and of course it is not terrorism.
A man has beheaded a woman at a food-processing plant in Oklahoma, police have confirmed.
Police said the suspect, who had just been fired, launched into the knife attack at a food-processing plant in Moore on Thursday afternoon.
Alton Nolen, 30, decapitated one woman before he was shot by another employee at Vaughan Foods while actively stabbing a second woman.
The man who shot Nolen was an off-duty reserve police officer, Mark Vaughn, who was chief operating officer at the business.
Moore Police spokesman Jeremy Lewis said the suspect “recently started trying to convert some of his co-workers to the Muslim faith”. The FBI are involved in the investigation.
The first victim was identified as 54-year-old Colleen Hufford.
Mr Lewis told Friday morning’s press conference: “He did kill Colleen and he did sever her head.”
Nolen and the second victim, 43-year-old Traci Johnson, were both in a stable condition, said police.
Mr Lewis said Mr Vaughn was a “hero” for shooting Nolen.
“It could have gotten a lot worse,” he added. “This guy (Nolen) was definitely not going to stop.”
There were said to be several hundred employees inside the warehouse at the time of the attack.
According to the state department of corrections, Nolen was convicted in 2011 of marijuana possession, intent to distribute cocaine, escape from detention and assault on a police officer.
