Tulsa's predominantly black north side in the US said Saturday they're afraid a shooter is still roaming their neighbourhoods looking for victims.
All five victims - four black men and one black woman - were shot by a man described by police as white and driving a white pick-up truck.
Officer Jason Willingham said "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."

Jack Henderson, from Tulsa City Council, has said residents are frightened knowing a gunman remains on the loose.
He said: "People are fearful. They are afraid they can't walk down the street.
