Tulsa police launch manhunt after shootings kill three

Tulsa Chief of Police Chuck Jordan speaks during a news conference at the Tulsa Police Department, Saturday, April 7, 2012 Tulsa's police chief vowed to do whatever it took to find the killer

Authorities in Tulsa, in the US state of Oklahoma, have launched a manhunt after a series of shootings which police say may have been hate crimes.

Five attacks took place within hours of each other on Friday, killing three and critically wounding two others, within a three-mile (5km) radius.

All the victims were black and police say there are searching for a white male in connection to the attacks.

Community leaders have tried to calm fears of further attacks.

The police said they were searching for a white man driving a white pick-up truck, who was seen in the area of three of the shootings.

The BBC's Jonathan Blake says the crimes have shocked people living in a relatively quiet part of north Tulsa, and that there is a fear that the killer may strike again.

Our correspondent says detectives are hoping for people to help them, but that many in the community do not trust the police.
'Nervous'

Tulsa police chief Chuck Jordan said they were investigating whether the attacks were hate crimes, after investigators earlier said the incidents were linked.

The FBI has joined a task force set up to investigate the killings, he said.

Jack Henderson, a city councillor for the district where the attacks occurred, urged people to come forward with information.

"This is Tulsa, Oklahoma. We should have the ability to stand out on your porch anytime, day or night, that you want to, to walk down the street, day or night.

"And the only way that this person is going to be brought to justice is we need some leads."

A 49-year-old was the first killed at about 01:00 local time (06:00 GMT) on Friday.

Minutes later the gunman approached two other men and asked for directions before shooting them. They survived but later two more were shot dead nearby.

"We're all nervous," said one resident, 52-year-old Renaldo Works. "I've got a 15-year-old, and I'm not going to let him out late. People are scared. We need facts."

"You don't want to be a prisoner in your own home," he said.

It takes a gunman for him to keep his son in at night? What's next, does it take a Bigfoot attack for him to keep his daughter from smoking meth?

I already seen this on the news.

Also, even the black people are telling you shut up. Not in here, but out on the streets. I can hear 'em.

I live in Tulsa and the news does not want to run this story so gets through it quickly and quietly so they can spend 10 min trying to paint a mexican cop white and a murderer...which he is I'm sure. North tulsa is very segregated. Whitey is not welcome there. There was the famous race riots here in the 20's. Social politics here are...as complicated as everywhere else I would think.I think here though people are a little more honest with themselves and eachother, than in more lefty communities.

Bubba strikes. Scary shit how this can escalate. I don't believe this will turn into any sort of all out race war, the idea of that is not even viable, but I think there will be a possible escalation of incidents, black and white, like the sniper guy a few years back, that will keep people on edge.

good work by the feds, it seems its all over, lets hope for a speedy trial

Tula, Okla. – Two arrests have been made in the North Tulsa shootings that left three African-American men dead, FOX23 reports.

Cops apprehended two white males -- 19-year-old Jake England and Alvin Watts, 32 -- at 1:47am local time, KOKI reported.

They will be charged with three counts of murder and two counts of shooting with intent to kill.

A statement from the Tulsa Police Department said, "Within 24 hours of its formation, the task force 'Operation Random Shooter' has completed its mission. Our sympathy goes out to the families of the victims and we hope that our efforts can bring some resolution and closure to these heinous acts."

"We would like to thank everyone that assisted and more information will be forthcoming in a Sunday afternoon press conference," it added.

The victims, all black, were seemingly shot at random as they walked in the street during a seven-hour period early Friday.

The three fatalities were identified as 49-year-old Dannaer Fields, 54-year-old Bobby Clarke and William Allen, 31. The two surviving victims have not been identified.

Detectives initially thought the shootings were the work of a "lone wolf" gunman and the FBI and U.S. Marshals Service were drafted in to the investigation.

Tulsa Police chief Chuck Jordan said cops were able to gain information about the attack from one of the surviving victims.

He said a "very logical theory" pointed to the possibility the shootings were racially motivated hate crimes, but there was "no evidence" to confirm that was the case.
