(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.
