Black community fearful after 5 shot in Tulsa; neighbors say random shootings unusual
TULSA, Okla. (AP) ' Residents of Tulsa's predominantly black north side say they're afraid a shooter is still roaming their neighbors looking for victims after five people were shot ' and three killed ' early Friday.
Barber Charles Jones said Saturday the community has had its share of troubles, but it has never seen a random killing spree like this. Resident Renaldo Works said he is keeping his 15-year-old son inside at night until a suspect is caught.
Investigators think the early Friday morning shootings are linked because they happened around the same time within a three-mile span and all five victims were out walking when they were shot.
Police are searching for a white man driving a white pickup, which was spotted in the area of three of the shootings.
