On his Facebook page, Nolen goes by the name Jah’Keem Yisrael. The same page says he attended Idabel High School and studied business management at Langston University. He lists Rockin’ T Livestock and Cattle Services, but shortly after Nolen’s page was discovered by reporters, that company’s Facebook page posted “Not affiliated with Alton Nolen.”

The woman who was killed has been named as Colleen Hufford, who lived in Moore. She was 54 years old. KFOR reports that he encountered her in Vaughan’s front office at around 4:05 p.m. on Thursday September 25. He then “severed her head” with a produce knife, according Sgt. Jeremy Lewis of the Moore Police Department.

Nolen then found Traci Johnson, another worker at the plant, and stabbed her. She is in stable condition in hospital. Police say it was “obvious” he was trying to kill his second victim and that if he had not been shot, the rampage could have been much worse.

Vaughn Foods released this statement:

On behalf of everyone at Vaughan Foods, we are shocked and deeply saddened by the events of today. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of the team member we lost and all those affected. Our focus is on the safety and well-being of our employees.

  1. Finally somebody willing to call out a possible lone wolf attack. Heavy is first. Keep up the good work.
    September 24, 2014 1 killed 1 injured workplace violence Moore OK food warehouse shooting and beheading An “angry employee” 30-year-old Alton Nolen at the Vaughn food distribution center in suburban Oklahoma City stabbed two women, killing one of them and shot another man before an off-duty law enforcement officer working security shot the suspect. The suspect attacked the first two people he encountered at Vaughan Foods in Moore, which is near the high school. The motive for the attack was unclear, he just appeared to be angry and acting out. He did not know the victims. Police believe the incident was the result of workplace violence and not a domestic situation. Nolen’s criminal history dates back to 2011, including possession of a controlled substance, escape from detention and assault and battery on a police officer. In 2013, the community of Moore was devastated by a series of tornadoes. The FBI is now looking into Nolen’s background after his former co-workers said he tried to convert them to Islam after recently converting himself… At this time, it is not known if the suspect’s beliefs played a role in the attack.

    • Holder’s out. Rat deserting the sunken ship. If Obama tries to defend this guy I hope someone hands him this lady’s head to hold up while he’s doing it. There’s your money shot right there.

        • I’ll bet my money that Obozo will do everything in his power to defend this turd & will order his release from prison as soon as he’s incarcerated. Obozo should be incarcerated as well for his crimes against humanity!

          • You mean the lowering of unemployment, the cutting of national debt that the monkey put us in, and trying to get the Democratic and Republican parties to work together while being blamed that they’re doing nothing when it’s really republicans playing “how long can we make our party this is Obama’s fault”?

            • Are you serious? Cut the deficit? This fuck hasn’t even had a damn budget. Do you know why the stock market is doing so well? Is it because of Obama? Hell yeah it is. When the economy sucks, people take risks to make money. Those risks are backed by investors who invest your money and my money to make more money. RISK. This shit will come tumbling down soon enough and it will be far worse than anyone has ever seen. Our economy is going to tank. Let’s recap what Ofucko has actually done. Let’s see, for starters, took Khadafi out of power by supporting the rebellion. Took Mubarek out of power and supported the Brotherhood. Did not help Syria when all of the intel we had pointed to terrorist activity and we armed the rebels. Here is what really happened. Khadafi and Mubarek both had a love/hate relationship with Israel. However weird the bedfellows were, no terrorism had come out of Libya in more than 30 years. Egypt got their dose of what fer back in the 70’s and they too left Israel alone. Now you have two countries that may not have supported Israel not fucking with Israel and had an ally-the US. Syria too, also did not fuck with Israel. This BOZO of a CIC has now put unrest in the Middle East because of his poor choices and lack of intelligence and I don’t mean the military kind. So…that is what YOUR president has done in the past 6 years. Fucked up. Please say something stupid about Israel. They already know that you liberal fucking retards hate em, so, don’t let them down. Your welcome

    • i’d hated to have to run thaat call I was a paramedic for nearly 20 years. YouTube seems to haave take down all the actual beheading videos. i’d wait for a through investigation and capital murder seems to be the only charge. this is insane for a variety of good reason, “find ’em, fix em, fight ’em and finish ’em”

  2. “Could the carnage in Moore, Oklahoma, be the first lone wolf attack on U.S. soil? Let us know what you think in the comments below.”
    You mean the first lone wolf attack that this presidency calls terrorism? Remains to be seen I guess, but this is far from the first lone wolf attack on US Soil. Boston? Ft. Hood?

    • two men in Seattle on June 1 and a man in New Jersey later that month was charged Wednesday with gunning down a 30-year-old in the Skyway area in April — all, he allegedly told police, as “vengeance” for U.S. actions in the Mideast.

      Ali Muhammad Brown, 40, is quoted in charging documents as saying that he they were “just kills” and that he was “just doing my small part” as a self-styled jihadist.

      He was charged Wednesday with aggravated first-degree murder by the King County Prosecutor’s Office for the slaying of Leroy Henderson, 30 in the unincorporated King County area of Skyway on the night of April 27.
      Henderson had been shot 10 times in the back as he was walking home.
      Brown had earlier been charged with aggravated first-degree murder for the slayings of Ahmed Said and Dwone Anderson-Young in Seattle’s Leschi neighborhood on June 1. He is also accused of killing a man, Brendan Tevlin, in the Newark, N.J., area on June 25, after he had fled Seattle.

    • Reports are that he retrieved his “assault rifle”, and donned his protective vest from his car before he entered the building. I still want to know why this dirt-bag was out on parole.

      • Notice it’s not called an “assault rifle” by even the liberal press on this one.
        Guess they’re OK after all, when you shoot scum.
        Another armed citizen saves the day: we’ll need more of them, and soon.

  3. MSNBC is already saying the authorities see no connection to terrorism! Are you kidding?!? Some people are in such denial…we as citizens cannot wait around for the government to protect us…we have to remain vigilant to protect ourselves and our families.

  4. Omigosh!!! Let’s all PANIC.

    This just another in a very very very long and unrelenting stream of black on white violence. The only thing remotely unusual here is that the attacker was shot by a company manager before he could rack up more than one dead victim. There are literally thousands of dead victims of these racial attacks in just the last couple of years, but by all means let’s panic here because this particular black racist murderer converted to become a “Nation of Islam” member last time he was in prison.

  5. Christianity has its ugly past and there are too many hate filled attacks from fanatic Christians…. but Islam poses an incredible threat to everyone – including your mild Muslims. They need to be stopped at ALL COST!

    • Catholicism has it’s ugly past not Christianity. The fucking crusades were brought forth by the Church of England and Catholics I get sick of some of you fucking half-wits. If you hate America so much that you are against the very foundation it was built upon , take an international flight the fuck out of here. Bob voyage motherfucker

  6. A Muslim lone wolf that first attacks defenseless women. Who could imagine they would be such cowards? Sarcasm spoken here.

  7. It is highly likely that there will be more lone wolf attacks. America is awash in Muslim converts who were converted in prison and taught Wahhabi/Salafi Islam instead of traditional orthodox Sunni beliefs.

    There are a lot of very angry violent men walking around with what they believe is God’s permission to act out their violence.

  8. Lone Wolf Islamist Attack vs Isolated Workplace Violence; Fort Hood – You be the judge. And I believe American Patriots are not stupid and have already figured this out. Only our moslem pandering government and their lackey media seem to want to perpetuate the multi-cultural, pc myth.

  9. Don’t let it go unnoticed that with the exception of the marijuana line,ALL of these reasons that God hates america are valid according to the book that some people in this country want to use to rule the country.These are ALL Biblical laws.According to the Bible,he is justified in his reasons.So next time you hear someone say “We need to get back to Biblical Laws in this country”,remind them of this.This is EXACTLY what some Christians in this country want,so enjoy your experience in “Biblical Laws”.Maybe someday,when we are allowed to call delusional people delusional we might be able to spot these deranged characters earlier,but the way it is now,it’s hard to tell the non-violent lunatics from the violent ones.

    • You’re an idiot. The bible doesn’t say to kill infidels as defined by violating “god’s rules.” You’re real smart aren’t ya? News flash, the Koran and bible (both testements have a LOT in common, where they differ is w how people who don’t abide by be these laws be dealt with. I wish there was a law regarding ignorance.

      • You’re right. He is an idiot. But let’s take a second and evaluate the Islamic religion.

        Their god is not Christian, catholic or Jewish god. The word Allah or name rather came from one of the many idols that people in the Middle East USE to worship. Allah was the god of the moon, hence the moon that is on everything Islamic. Muhammad was no more a fucking prophet/savior/diety than my damn dog. He was a criminal, a thief and a liar.

        So, next time someone tells you anything of the sort, Allah is not what most of the people in the world Call God. It is no more a religion than yoga is.

    • So many people forgeting Jesus came to fulfill the old testiment biblical laws and died so that we live by only two…love yourself, and love your neighbor as thyself. These are what we as Christians should be living by. No where in the Koran or Islamic teachings will you find this. Allah never sent his son to die on a cross for the all the sins of mankind. And further more no other religions God/leader ever sent their sons either. God gave us all free will and choice.

      • Then why did Christian countries have Biblically-based “sodomy” laws that punished homosexuals with execution and imprisonment? This was the case even in the US: Execution into the mid-1800s, and imprisonment until 2003. (Some Christian countries such as Jamaica and Uganda still have them). We would still have these laws in the US if courts didn’t overturn them. The state Republican parties of Texas and Montana had support for restoration of sodomy laws in their party platforms until 2010. Don’t pretend that Christians have not imposed their own form of Sharia for hundreds of years.

        • Because he wanted us to be fruitful and multiply. Hard to multiply by sticking your penis in another man’s ass. Homosexuality, according to the bible, is an abomination. It says that it makes god sick…is it natural? I value my penis and his buddies, so, I have to ask myself. Would I want to stick my head on my shoulders up someone’s ass? The answer is no, no and hell no

  10. My question: What race was victim Colleen Hufford? Was this a Black on White attack? Or, was it a Black on Black attack? Where is the RACE answer on this one? It seems to be a major issue any time a white cop shoots a black perp so where’s the answer? Is RACE an issue here?

  11. Let’s weep with all who weep.

    May I urge HALT to all hasty generalizations?

    Regarding the legal lingo of “identified suspect” and the like, such language stems directly from the USA’s Constitution. Every suspect-of-a-felony is entitled to a fair trial before a jury of peers.

  12. Another nail in the coffin for this diseased religion. Very soon these people, even the so-called “peaceful” muslims, will find it next to impossible to find tolerance in any western civilized country.
    Shouldn’t be a shock to THE MOST INTOLERANT people on the face of the planet.
    They are going to be the next jew-in-the-attic.
    Big difference being, the jews were treated barbarically for no reason but their heritage and religion.
    They also weren’t killing people like savages for being non-believers, or using the wrong prayer mat.
    Muslims SHOULD HAVE BEEN the ones in the ovens & gas chambers, if it had to happen to anyone.
    And it did

  13. honestly with all those people in in the facility, at least 200, why the heck could they not overtake this slug. I am stunned at the lack of courage exhibited by the men at that location while two innocent women screamed for their lives. I am 5 feet 100 pounds and I know without question I would not have hid from this guy, not with 200 other people available to help take this guy out. What the heck has happened to us. Are we so fearful we hide from everything?

    • Miss Susan….I applaud you at your bravery…but it is after the fact of the incident. Had you been trained and skilled in hand to hand combat with someone with a knife, you would not Stephanie in harm’s way to save your fellow co-worker. You too would be afraid for your life. You might though, jump in thinking your going to save the day….and in your heart and mind want to, but without the training, you’ll do what 200 others did.

  14. Just another loony extremist, like the abortion doctor killers, the Oklahoma City bombers, the KKK lynchers, the Civil Rights murderers, the murderers and bashers of gays, etc. All extremists thinking they are righteous. Unstable, desperate, criminal.

  15. Nothing this dude believed in makes sense. come on, tats of Jesus, “peace be with you” etc
    but acting completely opposite to that. Drug arrest and then saying marihuana is mean to cook with – the man is just insane. I hope real justice gets handed to him in jail

  16. This guy should have been killed on the spot. Due process is for suspects for whom some doubt of guilt might exist. This guy was caught in the middle of the act. He should never had lived long enough to enjoy going to court and having a lawyer abuse the justice system to defend his life and arrange for him to be set free again in the least amount of time. Why didn’t somebody pick up something, a chair, anything, to beat this guy in the head when he first started his rampage? You can weaponize almost anything. Stab an ink pen into the guy’s neck! Why didn’t the deputy who is also an executive at the plant empty his weapon into this Nolan guy?

  17. Po’ misunderstood choirboy! He was a good boy & was goin’ to college next year. Ummmmm… detect a little sarcasm here? Next they’re going to claim this douchebag had his hands up and was trying to surrender. I don’t know what pi$$es me off more… that it’s a racist murder(that nobody’s making an issue about) or that it’s a religious jihad killing(that the authorities are terrified about). It’s just too bad the mutha “F” is still alive and costing the taxpayers money. Thank our forefathers for the Second Amendment, keep your powder dry & one in the chamber.

  18. I don’t think Christianity or Islam are at play here. This was not a planned attack in the name jihad. This was a retaliatory attack on two defenseless women by a mentally ill, non-rehabilitated ex-con. I don’t think anyone, including the President, thinks this person is right or has been wronged in any way. Somehow people always find a way to make things racial, religious, or political. Can’t wait to find a reason to spew wicked and unnecessary insults to justify your malignant thoughts on anything that challenges your way of thinking, living, or being. So exhausting. ..

    • Look at the guy’s Facebook page. He was obsessed with Islam. Almost every single post was an ALL CAPS post about religion. He eats and breathes religion. That is in no doubt. Then there’s the fact that he decapitated someone with a sword! Think hard and try to remember if you’ve heard anything in the news about members of a certain religion trying to get attention by decapitating people. Does it ring a bell? I thought so. Then you come here and try to claim it has nothing to do with religion? You’re in denial!

      • Spur of the moment decision. His Logic and Reasoning Skills are Too Low To Plan Something Like this. Look at his past behaviors. Nowhere near a fully functioning member of society. And if it were premeditated he would have posted something about the attack before.

  19. You guys know you’re just feeding his ego right now? And oklahoma is claiming this is a lone wolf attact. And at th is point oklahoma is FAR from a reliable government to base things on. They’ve done so many things wrong, this just increases the laughability.

  20. One problem:


    “Diversity” means being chased out of your neighborhood.
    “Diversity” means being chased out of your school.
    “Diversity” means being chased out of your job.
    “Diversity” Means Chasing Down the Last White Person.
    “Diversity” means White Genocide

    Nobody’s flooding Africa with Non-Africans and giving them free health care, affirmative action and special privileges.

    Only White Countries are doing it, only White children are affected, and only White politicians are allowing it.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.
