Two Tulsa State lawmakers reacted Monday to Friday's deadly shooting spree in North Tulsa.

State Representative Jabar Shumate said he hopes the Tulsa County DA's office looks at the hate crime aspect of the shootings.

"We have received countless calls from constituents regarding the Friday shootings and we want to urge District Attorney Tim Harris to review all aspects of the case to determine whether or not this crime falls under the category of a hate crime and to make sure that justice is fully carried out," Jabar Shumate said. "I think looking into all the angles of the shootings would help the community get more closure on this terrible day."

State Representative Seneca Scott hopes this kind of incident will not reoccur.

"I would like to see this case explored and investigated fully, because it was such an unprecedented string of shootings in Tulsa and the community wants to know what prompted it and what can be done to prevent such a thing from reoccurring. My constituents are just stunned and frightened by these events," said Scott.

Three people died in last Friday's shootings. Two men, Jake England and Alvin Watts, were arrested early Sunday in connection with the shootings.
