TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Tulsa police say they have recovered a weapon and a truck in their investigation of shootings that terrorized the city's black community and left three people dead.

Task force commander Maj. Walter Evans says the two men arrested in the shootings were roommates. He says he doesn't know which one did the shooting.

Police have said they went to the men's home after receiving a tip and then followed them a few blocks to another home where they were arrested.

Police say they are looking at a possible Facebook posting by one of the suspects, 19-year-old Jake England, that suggests he was angry over the killing of his father by a black man.
