Tulsa, USA — Police have arrested two white males, 19-year-old Jake England and 32-year-old Alvin Watts, suspected of having perpetrated recent shootings that left three people dead and two others critically wounded, all black, in the Tulsa area.

The two men were arrested Sunday around 2:00 a.m. and are likely to be charged with first-degree murder and two counts of shooting with intent to kill. Police spokesperson Jason Willingham  told The Associated Press by telephone that “There obviously still is a lot of investigation” ahead, “We don’t’ have a motive at this time. We are still asking questions and hopefully that will become clear in coming days.”
