After a man in Tulsa, Okla. shot five people; killing three and wounding two others, police asked the public for help in the search, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The shootings occurred Friday each within a few miles of the other. Police identified those killed as Dannaer Fields, 49, Bobby Clark, 54, and William Allen, 31, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Investigators think the shootings are linked because they all occurred around the same time within a 3-mile span and all the victims were black. They are still waiting for the results from the forensic tests, reported the Associated Press.

Of the two surviving victims, one is the only witness to the shootings and described the gunman as a white male, Police Chief Chuck Jordan said, reported the Los Angeles Times. Police are now searching for a man in an older-model white pickup truck, Jordan said.

The pickup was spotted in the area of three of the shootings, Officer Jason Willingham said Saturday, reported the Associated Press.

"We don't have one definitive way where this investigation is headed," Willingham said, reported the Associated Press. "Right now, that's the only thing we have to go on."
