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."

Police 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 but claim it is not yet clear if they are racially motivated.

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

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.
