MOORE, Okla. (AP) — Police said Friday a man recently fired from a food processing plant in an Oklahoma City suburb beheaded a woman with a knife and was attacking another worker when he was shot and wounded by the owner of the company.

The 30-year-old man, who has not been charged, stabbed Colleen Hufford, 54, severing her head in Thursday’s attack at Vaughan Foods, Moore Police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis said.

Lewis said the man then stabbed Traci Johnson, 43, a number of times before being shot by Mark Vaughan, a reserve sheriff’s deputy and the company’s chief operating officer.

“This was not going to stop if he didn’t stop it. It could have gotten a lot worse,” Lewis said.

Lewis said the suspect had been fired in a building that houses the company’s human resources office, then immediately drove to the entrance of the business. Lewis said he didn’t know why the man was fired.

Johnson and the suspect were hospitalized and in stable condition Friday, Lewis said.

Lewis said he does not yet know what charges will be filed, adding that police are waiting until the man is conscious to arrest him. Moore police have asked the FBI to aid in the investigation and look into the man’s background because of the nature of the attack, Lewis said.

A Vaughan spokeswoman said the company was “shocked and deeply saddened” by the attack.

But sadly no. PLease my brothers, stop joining that crazy cult islam. THey act like a gang and they are no good.

      Oh and this crazy nut case claimed that our people didn’t come from Africa. He said that our people are the origninal Jews who where chased out of Isreal by the Catholics. Where the Egyptians enslaved us and sold our people to the Americans.
      So this is what he learned in Prison. So embarassing . How can someone today be so ignorant.
      Chances are he had these murdering thought before he bacame Islam. It just Christianity kept telling him murder was wrong. So he found a religeon that told him it was ok.

      • Mr. Wright on said:

        Original Jews. Where have I heard that one before………………..
        ………………..Oh thats right. Their are a few people that troll this site who have said the same thing. However I expect those trolls are white racist who are trying to make us look bad.

  6. I don’t agree with the way he handled this.but some of these employers are harsh in the firings.and its not easy to get help, pending on the circumstances . employers some need help in the handling of these situations.
