TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Tulsa police say there was no connection between the suspects and victims in a series of shootings that terrorized the city's black community.

Police Chief Chuck Jordan said Sunday the victims "appeared to be totally random."

Three people were killed and two seriously wounded in the shootings early Friday. Jordan says the two who survived have been released from the hospital.

Police have said there is a connection between the shootings and the shooting of a suspect's father by a black man two years ago.

All the victims of the shooting spree are black. Police previously described the two suspects as white.
