Neighbors Fearful After Shootings In Tulsa

An Oklahoma community is still on edge after a series of shootings.

Five people were shot in Tulsa's predominantly black north side early Friday and three of them died.

Residents say they're afraid the shooter is still roaming their neighborhoods looking for more victims.

Police are waiting for the results of forensic tests, but investigators think the shootings are linked because they happened around the same time within a 3-mile span, and all five victims were out walking when they were shot. All the victims are black.

One of the victims told police the shooter was a white man driving a white pickup truck who stopped to ask for directions before opening fire. Police say the vehicle was spotted in the area of three of the shootings.

More than two dozen officers are investigating the case, along with the FBI, the U.S. Marshals Service and other agencies.
