Tulsa, Okla. - Tulsa Police arrested two suspects in the early Friday morning shooting death of three people in north Tulsa.
Two other people were shot and wounded during the same time and in the same area. All five of the victims are black.
The suspects, Jake England (19 year old white male) and Alvin Watts (33 year old white male), have been arrested and will be charged with 3 counts of murder and 2 counts of shooting with intent to kill.
As the police and Tulsa County District Attorney build their case against the two suspects, a chilling picture of hateful motivation is already becoming apparent thanks to the suspects' Facebook pages.
Jake England wrote this entry on his Facebook page Thursday afternoon at 3:04 p.m., just 10 hours before the shooting spree began:

. Dad and sheran I

I think about both of u every second of the day
Alvin Watts, also arrested for murder early this morning, added this comment to England's Facebook post over an hour later:
Alvin Watts I kno i miss them 2. My last meomeries were great ones of them. Its nt goodbye its c u later.
Just 3 hours before the shootings early Friday morning, Jake wrote this on his Facebook page:

That update was followed by several comments from people urging Jake to 'not do anything stupid.'
Jake England's dad, Carl England, was shot in the chest and killed exactly two years ago Friday (April 6, 2010) during a fight at the Comanche Park Apartments at 3608 N. Quaker Ave, in Tulsa.
Pernell Jefferson, a black man, is currently serving time 6 years for Feloniously Pointing Firearm and was the key suspect in the shooting death of Carl England. Several witnesses had identified Jefferson as the shooter.
