TULSA Several members of the Tulsa chapter of the NAACP gathered at a north Tulsa church Friday evening for an emergency meeting to discuss what police have characterized as a possible "shooting spree" that targeted five people early Friday morning.
As news spread that the police are looking for a white man in connection with the shootings of five black people, people began saying they believe the shootings were racially motivated.
KRMG spoke with Tulsa City Councilor Jack Henderson as the meeting continued in the 2200 block of N. Peoria Avenue.
When asked if people in the community felt that the shooter or shooters were deliberately targeting black people, he replied "yes, absolutely."
He told KRMG the "word on the street is that this person would drive up to people walking, ask for directions, and when they would turn away, walk away, begin firing. That's truly a concern, and anybody would be (ill) at ease if you knew this was going on."
He added that "I've talked to the Mayor, and the Mayor assures me that the city is on top of this. The police chief, I've talked to him, they have a lot of people that are on this case, they'll be working around the clock."
Henderson said he urges anyone with information to come forward, and in the meantime he wants people to be careful. Also, he definitely wants to avoid any sort of vigilantism.
"Don't go out late at night walking by yourself, until these people are apprehended. We need to be careful, and we don't want anybody to go out and do any vigilante-type stuff either. Let the police do their jobs."
Meanwhile, Chicago is turning into a sideshow shooting gallery, black on black, and Jessie, Al, and the NAACP are nowhere in sight.
Thank you, First Post Racial President.
Barry got his race war! More “welcome news” for the racists in the ‘RAT party.
Totally Obama’s fault, and possibly his goal. He can’t figure out which race he is, or which he hates the most.
What is annoying is that there are sickos on both sides looking to create a race war and are taking advantage by putting more gas on the fire. “Why can’t we just get along?”
Detroit is on the same page but no word from the justice brothers inc.
Ah yes, the ever popular and never corraborated “word on the street” “evidence” is entered into the Court of Public Opinion by the race-baiting morons.
I posted the report from KJRH which wasn’t as detailed as this one. They said that a white man was seen in the area driving a white van, but didn’t include the part about asking directions. The whole thing sounds rather odd, though.
Anyone agitating for this have no idea what they’re in for.
I was wondering about that myself. Where are the actual witnesses? Is this just an attempt to cover up gang shootings? The report at KJRH was different from this one.
They were worried about a white serial killer targeting blacks in Flint Mi. a few years ago. Turned out to be palestinian or something and he was targeting people out wandering alone at all hours of the night.
“driving a white van,”
Waitaminnit! Is that the van from the D.C. snipers?
Where have I heard that description before?
Why cant we just get along?————
I saw your post after I posted. (I did a search on FR but found nothing about this story.) Looks like you beat me by 13 minutes. I first heard about the story on a ABC radio report this morning. No doubt the SRM will be having a field day with this story.
White as in white or white as in Hispanic.
Guess ALLEGED shooter doesn’t look like ‘obama’s son’.
Does anyone have an actual description of the perp that doesn’t begin with “Word on the street”?
