Off-duty reserve deputy with Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Department saves untold lives from knife attack

2014 NRA Law Enforcement Officer of the Year Mark Vaughan

Fairfax, Virginia - The National Rifle Association is proud to announce the selection of Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Deputy Mark Vaughan as its 2014 Law Enforcement Officer of the Year.

On September 24, 2014, an employee of a commercial food distributor in Moore, Oklahoma, was suspended for the violation of work rules and harassment of employees. After initially leaving the office, he returned with an 8-inch long serrated knife and crashed his vehicle into a car parked in front of the business. He then entered the main office and attacked Colleen Hufford, the first employee he came upon, and murdered her by decapitation.

Hearing screams from the attack, Mark Vaughan, CEO of the business and an off-duty Reserve Deputy with the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Department, took action. Quickly evaluating the tactical needs of the incident, he retrieved his Patrol Rifle and sought out the suspect.
