NEWS92FM.com — Police say their investigation of the deadly shooting spree in Tulsa, Okla., will include the racially charged Facebook postings of a man arrested Sunday morning in connection with the attacks, although they say it’s premature to describe the incident as a hate crime.
Two white men were arrested in connection with the random attacks that left three black pedestrians dead and two in critical condition last Friday, police said.
Jake England, 19, and Alvin Watts, 32, were arrested at a house north of Tulsa around 2 a.m. Sunday morning and were charged with three counts of murder and two counts of shooting with intent to kill, according to officials.
“I’m just really amazed at how quickly we were able to apprehend these two subjects,” Task force commander Maj. Walter Evans said at a news conference on Sunday. “But there are still a whole lot of unanswered questions that we have to have answered.”
