Tulsa shootings are linked to black community shootings, police say

Jake England, Alvin Watts were arrested for the Tulsa shootings

TULSA, Oklahoma (AP) — Tulsa police say there is a connection between shootings that terrorized the city's black community and the shooting of a suspect's father by a black man.

Two men have been arrested in the Friday shootings that left three dead and two seriously wounded.

Police have said they are looking at a possible Facebook posting by one of the suspects, 19-year-old Jake England, that suggests he was angry over the killing of his father by a black man two years ago.

Task force commander Maj. Walter Evans says investigators know there's a connection between the two cases, but he and others at a Sunday news conference stopped short of calling Friday's shootings racially motivated.

The FBI special agent in charge of Oklahoma says it's too early to talk about hate crimes.
