Tulsa Shooting Suspects Said to Confess


Shortly after a 4 p.m. press conference on Saturday, a caller to the local crimestoppers number suggested he or she might know who was behind the shooting spree. The caller identified England and said his father had been killed almost exactly two years ago and that England had recently witnessed his girlfriend commit suicide.

About an hour later, another critical call came in. A tipster said that England had a white truck he was planning on burning. One of the surviving witnesses had told authorities that the man who shot him was driving a white truck.

Hours later authorities found a white truck burning about two miles from England's house and his property was put under surveillance. Police received information that he and Watts were hiding in an abandoned trailer near his residence.

At 1:47 a.m. police surrounded the trailer, shined a light on it and England and Watts came out with their hands in the air.

England and Watts are scheduled to be back in court on April 16 for an official arraignment.
