(TULSA, Okla.) — Police are on the hunt for a white male driving a white pickup truck after a shooting spree has left three people dead and two injured since Friday morning, ABC affiliate KTUL reports.
Dannaer Fields, 49, Bobby Clark, 54, and William Allen, 31, all died after being shot. Officials say the five shootings took place on the same side of town not too far from each other.
“We are doing what we can do. Someone needs to step up and somebody needs to come forward and say you know, we know who did this,” says Tulsa Police Sergeant Dave Walker.
All of the victims are African-American and were walking on the street when they were shot. Police have determined that they had no relation to each other.
Dr. Warren Blakney, of the NAACP said, “We feel like he’s targeting African Americans and I think law enforcement, some parts of law enforcement feel that same way.”
The NAACP urged the public to stay safe and smart.
“As long as that person is loose then we are in danger, and I don’t want any vigilante stuff to start happening I don’t want a race riot,” says city councilor Jack Henderson. “I just want this person caught and I want the people that live in this community to be safe.”
Sgt. Walker says if you have information about “this crime specifically” please call the direct homicide tip line at 918-798-8477 or email homicide detectives at homicide@cityof tulsa.org.
