Tony, it appears that Jack Vinson (Guthrie Leader) is the same as Lester Vinson (Daily Oklahoman) and was not a law enforcement officer.

The Daily Oklahoman, Tuesday, July 1, 1902, Page 1 Col. 2

JEALOUSY CAUSED T
A Young Man Killed at A Pottawatomie County Dance

Asher, O.T., June 29 --At a dance west of Adell last night one Tomlinson shot and killed a young man named Lester Vinson. There had been a dance at Tomlinson's residence and it seems as though Tomlinson became jealous of the young men because of their dancing with his wife. After firing two or three shots in the house he turned and shot young Vinson, who was standing in the door with a young man names Phillips. The ball passed through his left arm entering his side below the heart. Tomlinson left the scene of the killing saying he was going to Tecumsah to give himslf up, but was later arrested at Wanette. Vinson was a quite young man of good standing and had many friends.
