Shooter in Oklahoma Deliberately Targeting Black Victims

Police are saying that the same attacker may be responsible for a string of shootings in Oklahoma.  The shootings have so far left three people dead and two wounded within a three mile span of North Tulsa, according to police.

The victims were walking in neighborhoods in close proximity of one another when they were shot, according to Sgt. Dave Walker of the Tulsa Police Department.

Rev. Warren Blakney Sr., NAACP Tulsa president, claims that the perpetrator has been “targeting black people to shoot.”

“I’m on edge for my people,” Blakney said, according to the Tulsa World.

An emergency meeting for the NAACP has been held this week, as citizens are seeking to discuss safety strategies in the midst of the shooting spree.  When he was asked if the shooter was deliberately targeting black people, Tulsa City Councilor Jack Henderson replied, “Yes, absolutely,” krmg.com reported.

Police are saying that the victims did not know one another.

“There is no forensic evidence to link at this point,” Walker said. “Timing and location lead us to believe they may be connected.”

Two victims were found within minutes of the first victim, Dannaer Fields.   The two found after Fields are expected to survive the shooting.   The dead are listed as: Fields, 49, Bobby Clark, 54, and William Allen, 31.

    I intend to cast my vote to re-elect President Obama, but I am mighty afraid that when he is re-elected some of these sick white people will go on the rampage and ramdomly target blacks more and more.
