OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma deputy was recently named Law Enforcement Officer of the Year by the National Rifle Association for his heroic efforts that saved the lives of employees at Vaughan Foods.

At the time of the attack, Deputy Mark Vaughan was an executive at Vaughan Foods in Moore.

He was at work on Sept. 25, 2014 when he received word that a former employee was attacking people inside the business.

Vaughan armed himself and shot the suspect who had just beheaded one victim, Colleen Hufford, and was in the act of attacking a second victim, Traci Johnson.

According to the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office, not only was Vaughan named Law Enforcement Officer of the Year by the NRA, he was also recognized today at the State Capitol.
