*(Via MSNBC) – After a 24-hour manhunt, police arrested two men early Sunday morning in connection with a Good Friday shooting spree in Tulsa’s predominantly black north side that left three people dead and two others wounded.
Jake England, 19, and Alvin Watts, 32, were held on three counts of first-degree murder and two counts of shooting with intent to kill, the Tulsa Police Department said. Police identified both suspects as white males.
Police are examining whether the shootings might be a hate crime, as England, 19, had posted racially charged comments on his Facebook page about the two-year anniversary of his father’s death, the Tulsa World reported.
England wrote: “Today is two years that my dad has been gone shot by a f—— n—– it’s hard not to go off between that and sheran I’m gone in the head.”
Watts commented beneath his post: “I kno i miss them 2. My last meomeries were great ones of them. Its nt goodbye its c u later.”
Sheran Hart Wilde was England’s fiancé who died in January at the age of 24.
His father, Carl England, 47, was shot and killed during an argument at an apartment complex two years ago; his death led to charges against a 38-year-old black man, KJRH.com reported. The man, Pernell Jefferson, was charged with pointing a gun and is scheduled to be released in 2014, according to the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.
