2 arrested in Tulsa shootings

(CNN) - Authorities in Oklahoma arrested two people early Sunday in connection with a deadly spate of random shootings in Tulsa that had residents on edge.

About 30 representatives from four law enforcement agencies - the Tulsa police, Tulsa County Sheriff's Office, the U.S. Marshals Service and the FBI - had been working round-the-clock looking for the person that authorities say killed three people and wounded two others in shooting attacks early Friday.

The police identified the arrested men as Jake England, 19, and Alvin Watts, 32.

They will be charged with three counts of murder and two counts of shooting with intent to kill, the department said.

    my girlfriend's daughter lives up in that area. the first reports friday morning didn't mention black, and the police switchboard just had girl in her 20s whose last name started with g. it fit, and we were freaking out for a good 2 hours before her daughter returned the numerous calls she had made to her.

    🙂 Easter? I don't celebrate easter, but I do honor Jesus' last supper and death. And the actual date this year fell on last Thursday, Nisan (month) 14th (day), according to the Jewish calendar.
    Warm wishes for a great day. 🙂

      Oopsy, my post does make it seem like I don't celebrate the resurrection of Christ. I just meant that "Easter" has had a implication of celebrating Egg hunts rather than Jesus. Sorry for the confusion. That's my specialty at times. LOL

      It was called Easter Sunday well before bunnies and colored eggs and comercialization came into it...you can wish someone a Happy Easter the same way you wish someone Good Morning.

      it was unbelievable.. we saw it on tv first thing that morning. the video showed someone being loaded in an ambulance. all you could see was the legs, and they looked white – bright lights and light colored black i guess. the detectives didn't get in until 8, and even after that it was hard to get someone on the phone. then had to wait for them to call back. a cop car went by the house real slow, and i was thinking here it comes.. then he just turned around and left. it was a surreal, chain-smoking morning..

      her daughter finally called, and all she had to say was we were crazy.. if she'd have been here saying that, might have twisted her neck shut lol
