The recent shooting spree in Tulsa Oklahoma has left many wondering if this is another case of hate crime. The shooting took place on Friday morning. Even though the suspects have been arrested, it is still not clear whether it was a case of hate crime or not.
The shooting left everyone wondering why the men would kill all those people randomly. The suspects, who have been arrested, are Jake England, 19, and Alvin Watts, 32. Both are being held on three counts of first degree murder and two counts of shooting with intent to kill. Both the suspects are white males and all the victims of the shooting are black males.
The event is being speculated as a hate crime, as Jake England had recently posted racially charged posts on his Facebook page.

Sheran Hart Wilde was his girlfriend, who had earlier this year, leaving him emotionally wrecked. On the comments posted by England, his roommate, Alvin Watts, commented by saying, “I kno i miss them 2. My last meomeries were great ones of them. Its nt goodbye its c u later.”
Jake England`s father, Carl England, 47, was killed during an argument that he had with a man at his apartment complex. The man who was charged for his killing was a 38-year-old black man, who was charged with pointing a gun and is scheduled to be released in 2014. It is being speculated that Jake England killed all these people due to the hate against his father`s killer.
The two suspects were taken into custody from the north of Tulsa at around 1:47 a.m. The shooting started at around 1 a.m. on Friday and the killings took place around three miles apart. According to details, all five victims were out walking when they got shot. England went up to his victims, ask for directions and when they walked away, he shoot them from the back.
