TULSA, Okla. — One of only two survivors from that Tulsa shooting spree said he was just caught in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Jake England and Alvin Watts both face charges in connection with the shooting rampage last Friday that killed three people and injured two others.

Deon Tucker said he was just standing on his front porch when the suspects asked him for directions then shot him in the chest.

Prosecutors are trying to determine whether hate crime charges should be filed.

All five victims were African American.

England remembered his father with a post on his facebook page the day before the second anniversary of his death.

He said his father died at the hands of a black man.

“I know there are people out here who are crazy; that really didn’t faze me. I know there are crazy people out here,” Tucker said. “Then when I found out it was behind his daddy, some people like doing stuff on their own. They don’t know how to handle it so they act crazy.”

England and Watts are each being held on more than a $9 million bond.
