Washington, April 8 (ANI): The US police, including the FBI, are hunting for a gunman, who has shot five African-Americans, killing three and injuring two, in a bloody shooting spree in Tulsa.
According to the New York Post, the authorities are looking for a white man driving an old white Chevy pickup truck who was spotted around the attacks at 3 am on Saturday.
Tulsa City Councilor Jack Henderson said that the gunman would drive up to pedestrians, ask for routes and later killed them after they turned away.
Police are not ruling out the possibility of a hate-fueled rampage.
"Obviously if that's where our investigation takes us, that's where we'll go," Tulsa Police Department Officer Jason Willingham said.
The shootings occurred within three miles of each other in Tulsa's predominantly black north side.
Homicide detective Sergeant Dave Walker said that the investigators do not have the results of forensic tests of the dead yet, but the police believe the attacks were linked because they happened around the same time in the same general area and all five victims were out walking when they were shot.
Black community leaders met on Friday evening in an effort to calm unrest in the area and provide safety.
NAACP Tulsa president, Rev. Warren Blakney Sr., told the Tulsa World that someone appeared to be "targeting black people".
North side residents were worried about the possibility of an armed extremist roaming on the streets to target them.(ANI)
