2 suspects confess to US race shootings

2012-04-10 21:45

Tulsa - Police documents show that the two suspects arrested in a shooting rampage that terrorised Tulsa, Oklahoma's black community and left three people dead, have confessed.

The documents given to The Associated Press on Monday say 19-year-old Jake England confessed to shooting three people and 33-year-old Alvin Watts confessed to shooting two.

The explanation for a shooting spree may lie in a killing that took place more than two years ago.

England's father, Carl England, was fatally shot in 2010 by a man who had threatened his daughter and tried to kick in the door of her home.

The man was black and police say Jake England may have been seeking vengeance when he and his roommate shot five black people last week.
