(CBS/AP) TULSA, Okla. - A spree of early-morning shootings within a one-mile span of north Tulsa in which three people were killed and two critically wounded has lead police to suspect the same attacker or attackers are behind them.
All five of the victims were shot within an hour, and within a 1-mile radius of each other, police sources tell CBS News, and all five victims were out walking when they were shot.
Police are speculating that the shootings were racially motivated because all of the victims are black; it is not believed the victims knew one another.
Police won't know for sure if the shootings are linked until they see the results of ballistic tests.
CBS News has learned that two of the victims described the suspect as a white male, and that four people said they saw a white truck. No one has been arrested.
The FBI is now involved in the investigation.
Black community leaders met Friday evening in an effort to calm unrest and promote safety. NAACP Tulsa president, the Rev. Warren Blakney Sr., told the Tulsa World someone appeared to be "targeting black people to shoot."
"I'm on edge for my people," Blakney said.
Four shooting victims were found in yards, and the fifth in a street. Police identified those killed as Dannaer Fields, 49; Bobby Clark, 54; and William Allen, 31. Fields was found wounded about 1 a.m. Friday. Clarke was found in a street about an hour later. Allen was discovered in the yard of a funeral home about 8:30 a.m.
Minutes after Fields was found, police found two men with gunshot wounds in another yard two blocks away. They were taken to hospitals in critical condition but are expected to survive, police said. Their names have not been released.

Wasn’t there a black on white crime recently in Oklahoma that resulted in a 90 year old white man severely beaten and his wife beaten to death by some black thugs?
It's "led" not "lead".
Please get some qualified spellcheckers on board if you want to be taken seriously!
Exactly what OBAMA wanted, a race war he started and it’s gonna get ugly.
Don’t worry so much about the spelling. I used to be a very good speller tho not so much on grammar. I have noticed recently that I often make mistakes which if I had looked carefully, I would not have made.
I no longer correct others because it might have been me doing the same thing.
"this next election is going to be a cakewalk"
Black males between the ages of 16 and 36 (less than 3% of the US population) commit more than 50% of US murders, and 90% of those victims are other blacks.
But let's speculate that there must be only one shooter, and he must be white, and he must be racially motivated, so that we don't waste this crisis.
It very well may have been a White shooter tho when I lived in Tulsa, that area was mostly Black. We moved in 74 so it may have changed.
Such a thing should probably tear apart the flimsy-held-together Democrat coalition more than anything else.
LOL! You owe me a keyboard!
But...but...it's us racist European descendants that are making them do it by being available to make them attack us so we can screw up their futures and make them look bad!
Obama and the media may well get the RACE WAR that they’ve been dreaming about.
...but they may not like the outcome, necessarily.
Speculating? Isn't "all the victims are black" a typical weekend in Chicago or Harlem? Either they "know" something or they are dumber than Sergeant Harrison Yates in South Park because "white shooter, black shootee in black neighborhood" is about as common as "man bites Pit Bull".
***It has a history of race riots,***
Only one I know of back in 1921. Afterward, it was safe to walk the streets again.
To construct the outright falsehood That blacks need to fear white criminal behavior.
Even though it is a STATISTICAL FACT that whites are 8 times more likely to be victimized by black criminals than the other way around.
Wasnt there a black on white crime recently in Oklahoma that resulted in a 90 year old white man severely beaten and his wife beaten to death by some black thugs?
And the boy who did it? Did he look like Obama’s boy? If Obama had a son?
And did the MSM ignore this (yet another) black on white crime while they focused on Trayvon Martin?
Is this rhetorical question day here at FR?
And now the MSM is (once again) throwing newsprint at another racially charged story. How long before the race pimping reverends (Al and Jesse) show up?
The spell police will meet their own humility on a path coming soon, as age comes upon even the prissy and the critical.
Ignore these prickly prigs when they pop up. No one around here thinks they are all that smart flashing their imaginary badge in the first place.
So, type away, yarddog. I can decipher even if the badge can’t.
One of the comments at that link....
I remember 30 years ago hearing neo-Nazis ranting about how this country would eventually be torn apart by racial civil war, mainly because our government would be deliberately sponsoring it.
I laughed then.
Anybody laughing now?
True. Very true. There are lots of things going on now that - 30 years ago - would not have been thought possible:
“A black Marxist president? With a set plan in place to decimate our military, our families and even our very nation? Are you high?”
CWIII. We didn’t start it. But we will finish it.
The MSM is trying to gin up racial tensions in the hope of having ratings bonanza from race riot coverage . They truly believe that they are somehow immune to any violence,they must be disabused of this notion . When the violence starts the first order of the day is look for the talking heads & bring them under fire from every thing in the shot locker make them duck in fear of their lives burn their tv transmission trucks. That sends a rude message to the media whores.
Yes, the same week the world was turned upside down for treyvon except the woman, who was 85, was raped before she was murdered. The perp was a twenty year old black thug. The story was not reported except in Okahoma. It was carried by the daily mail out of the UK. I called my newspaper in Columbus oh and asked the news desk why THIS story wasn’t reported nationally and the treyvon story was. I was told that the Okahoma thing was not unusual, very common and happens all the time, also told that treyvon wasn’t carrying a weapon and wasn’t doing anything wrong. I asked him if he supposed the elderly couple had a weapon and doing something wrong. He then said he was very busy and didn’t have time for this, then hung up.
“I’m on edge for my people,” Blakney said.”
You should be... look at the mess that you Skittles have started.
Had they not teased the dog, this murdering nut case might not have ever come out of his closet.
Damn the crazy fool, find him and bring him to justice, but Obama and the loon democrats deserve some of the credit for this bloodletting.
No matter where you are and where you go, there is always a white guy and a white pickup truck around!
Yet the media and the civil rights industry already have their headlines. I hate the bast*rds.
I do not point out spelling errors on blogs, online review boards, etc.
But for CBS "journalists"? You betcha!!
If you are serious, perhaps you should contact Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpie and The New Black Panthers, and ask them to stop pouring gasoline on the racial bonfire...
You should google "Great riot of 1921, Tulsa Oklahoma."
It's an eyeopener.
If a pompous ass can't spell and starts preaching to everyone on a thread, I ENJOY pointing out his/her "shorcomings."
Sorry, I can't help myself.
something doesn’t feel right about this story
i’ll wait for more info before i ask the questions that aren’t being asked.
My money is on a black person involved in these shootings to stir the pot.....

I am actually fairly familiar with that riot tho I thought incorrectly that it was in the 30s.
Back around 1973 I worked for Social Security while waiting for an appointment to another agency.
An old Black guy who was applying for social security or maybe had some problem with it told me about it first hand. He said there were far more people killed than the official accounts. Among other things he said there were airplanes dropping “turpentine bombs” on them.
Beyond reporting that a young man named Trayon Martin was killed- 100% of all news reporting on the Trayvon shooting has been shown to be fabricated.
Wait to see who, what and why as Fox uncovers what happened.
Cellphone records can tell exactly how many people were close to all of these incidents.
I don't know why people think they have to correct others spelling errors anyway. I think they have a name for it.
‘This is for Trayvon. Kill that white’: Six youths ‘beat man, 78, in alleged racial revenge attack’
You Americans are so gullible.
No, you wont accept Communism outright.
But we will keep feeding you small doses of socialism
until you finally wake up and realize you already have communism.
We wont have to fight you;
well so weaken your economy
that you will fall like over ripe fruit into our hands. “

We’ve been here before:
Remember the DC sniper shootings 6 years ago?
Remember how it was a whiiiiiite guy in a generic whiiiiite van, like from the A-team..?
Remember the hateful whiiiite sniper...?
Oh you don’t? Yes, that’s because it was a pair of black Muslims.
Remember how the cops caught them? You don’t? Yeah that’s cuz the black muslim snipers were caught by a CIVILIAN.
And this is the SAME:
The Trayvon thang fizzled cuz of this little thing called The Truth —the left figgered they had that racial Big Mouth Bass almost in the boat, and Zimmerman broke free at the milisecond they’d lifted him out of the water.
And the Grievance Elite were itching for that white guilt fix so badly that they send out some droopy pantzers to shoot up some black folks and then blame it on Whitey.
But, but the elite, self-appointed (ahem) “community leaders” like the Rev. Al Sharpton, for example, hardly have any unfortunate history of supporting completely unsubstantiated and ultimately proved false and fabricated racist attack claims, right?
I mean to say, that sort of thing just doesn’t happen, does it?
The 50 IQ clods in the FBI only investigate if Holder’s “peeples” are dead or wounded. If “peeples” who look like obama’s son are involved in raping, beating and shooting honkies, that be too cool for Holder’s racist FBI to investigate.
I wonder if these FBI racist and poltically correct morons realize they’re about to be arrested, indicted and thrown in prison for sedition.
I doubt it. Fifty IQ points doesn’t give one much room to figure stuff out. By the time you puzzle over how to tie your shoelaces and where the tap water comes from, there ain’t many IQ points left.
CNN radio is running this as their lead news story
There’s been several incidents lately where gangs of black youths are beating up old white people.
This is just the beginning.
“”I’m on edge for my people,” Blakney said.”
He should be...”his people” kill others of “his people” all the time and it’s getting worse everyday. Blacks make up 12% of the population but comprise 45% of prison inmates.
Yep - that's exactly what he wants. Notice he hasn't been in front of the cameras calling for calm now, has he.
I don’t recall any witnesses identifying the DC snipers as white. What I recall were repeated witnesses claiming to have seen a white van and a widespread public assumption that the shooter(s) was white based on the nature of the crime.
A former FBI analyst (I have a mental block and can’t think of his correct position) kept telling us the shooters were White racists.
He was a complete total idiot as there was nothing to suggest that except the way his mind worked.
