  • SUSPECT: Tulsa County Jail mugshot of Alvin Watts, suspect in random shootings.
Two men have been arrested in the random drive-by shootings of five black people in Tulsa, three of whom died.

The suspects are white, including the 32-year-old man shown here.

Perhaps they will argue that they felt threatened and were compelled to fire. Oklahoma has a "stand your ground" law. Benefit of the doubt goes to shooter, right?
