Tulsa Police Chief Chuck Jordan addresses reporters at police headquarters

Flanked by north side City Councilor Jack Henderson and the local head of the NCAAP, Tulsa Police Chief Chuck Jordan met with reporters in a Saturday afternoon news conference. He updated the search for a suspect in Friday's shooting spree that left five people shot. Three people were killed and two others are hospitalized.

The chief said they are still looking for a white man in a white pick-up, but admitted to reporters that could be one of thousands of people in Tulsa. He stopped short of calling it a hate crime, but added federal officials would be aiding in the investigation if it should head in that direction.

He did address the suspect and anyone who may be harboring him. The Chief said, "We are coming for you!" He announced a multi-agency  special task force will be in place to look for the shooter.  He told reporters that so far they have been able to only talk with one of the surviving victims.
