    CBS News(AP) TULSA, Okla. - Residents of Tulsa's predominantly black north side said Saturday they're afraid a shooter is still roaming their neighborhoods looking for victims after five people were shot — and three killed — a day earlier.

    "We're all nervous," said Renaldo Works, 52, who was getting his hair cut at the crowded Charlie's Angels Forever Hair Style Shop on Saturday morning. "I've got a 15-year-old, and I'm not going to let him out late. People are scared. We need facts.

    "You don't want to be a prisoner in your own home," he said.

    Police are still 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, and community met this weekend in an effort to calm any unrest.

    3 dead, 2 wounded in Tulsa shooting spree

    One of the victims told police that the shooter was a white man driving a white pickup truck who stopped to ask for directions before opening fire. Officer Jason Willingham said Saturday that the pickup was spotted in the area of three of the shootings.

    "We don't have one definitive way where this investigation is headed," Willingham said. "Right now, that's the only thing we have to go on."

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

    As investigators searched for the killer, the tension and fear among some of the city's black residents was palpable.

    "It's got everybody on edge," said Louis Johnson, 24. "Everybody is saying the same thing — it's a white guy in a white pickup or a Tahoe."

    Barber Charles Jones, 40, said the north side has had its share of crime trouble, but residents have never faced a series of random killings like these.

    "It's pretty shocking," Jones said. "We've never had any serial-type stuff."

    At a neighborhood park a couple blocks from two of the shootings, parents kept close watch over their kids during an Easter egg hunt.

    "A tragedy, but let's wait for all the evidence to come out. It was their fault for running away from him while black."

    Right is right. Wrong is wrong. I don't give a fuck what color, sex, or sexual orientation a criminal is, they need to pay for their crime. And don't get me started on Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman's father is a retired judge so I am sure that this has more impact than race. I sure the ole retired judge has plenty of favors to call in to protect his retard son. And so what if Trayvon did punch Zimmerman, that was no ground to use deadly force. I feel sooo sorry for his family. I am a middle aged white man from the south and I have never marched but this makes me want to take to the street.

    Zimmerman apologists: "But one of the Tulsa shooting victims once got suspended from school for using marijuana, so that makes it okay."

    And, "It is quite possible the shooter was threatened during all five incidents and used reasonable force to defend himself. We really must wait for all the evidence to emerge, before we have any opinion whatsoever."

    This is really sad. They definitely look like trouble. If they are found guilty, I hope they get the death penalty.

    Sometime in the last 24-hours they arrested two white guys. since this was Oklahoma, I assume both have been charged with first-degree murder. More than likely, these two guys will be able to choose their form of execution.

    By the way, I wouldn't show you any more sympathy than to two pieces of trash. I suggest you join the riots here soon. You'll have to opportunity to prove whether you are the same.

    Interesting question you pose. I've wondered that about many folks on RJ where it is not so obvious. Of course, perhaps it is that "South of the Border" thing that guides political conduct for a few. "One night in Tiajuana......"

    Always the victim, never anything else.

    If this happened to rich assholes, clout would be tossed around, favors called in, money pushed around until the criminals were caught, black or white. What I don't like about people like you is that your money defines who you are and feel that you are somehow better than others and therefore entitled to better treatment in all aspects of life. "I hold it, that a little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical." Sometimes riots are necessary to shake up assholes like you.
