Pair 'confess' to race killings

Two suspects arrested in a shooting spree that terrorised the black community in Tulsa, Oklahoma have both confessed, according to police documents.

The documents say 19-year-old Jake England confessed to shooting three people and 32-year-old Alvin Watts confessed to shooting two.

The shootings left three people dead and two seriously wounded. It's not clear from the affidavit which man shot which victim, but the document says police believe Watts shot two of the three people who died.

Police have described the suspects as white.
