Oklahoma Police Say 'Muslim Protest and Chanting' Report Is False

MOORE, Oklahoma — Following the brutal beheading of a woman in an Moore, Oklahoma, a photo began circulating the web allegedly showing a large group of Muslims at a press conference reading from the Koran and shouting “praise Allah!” 

Breitbart Texas asked a Moore Police Department Public Affairs Officer, Jeremy Lewis, if a group of Muslims were in fact protesting after the press conference yesterday. 

“No, there was not,” Lewis told Breitbart Texas. 

The beheading took place at Vaughan Foods, where the suspect, Alton Nolen, previously worked. Breitbart Texas obtained a press release from the City of Moore stating that Nolen was “angry” after he had been fired from Vaughan Foods. 

Nolen severed the head of 54-year-old Colleen Hufford. The suspect then began stabbing 43-year-old Traci Johnson when Mark Vaughan, Vaughan Foods’ former CEO and a reserve deputy, shot him. Johnson is currently at a hospital in stable condition. 

Nolen had apparently converted to radical Islam earlier in the year. Breitbart News reported that he had tried to convert coworkers at Vaughan Foods to Islam.
