Tulsa Police have identified the two men who survived last Friday's shooting spree that left three people dead.

Deon Tucker, 44, was released from a Tulsa hospital Friday. David Hall, 46, remains hospitalized. 

With body aches and bandages, Deon Tucker is trying to wrap his head around the deadly shootings.

"What are they shooting at me for?" Tucker said. "I don't have any enemies, so I didn't know what was going on."

Tucker was on his porch when he says two white men drove up in a white truck and asked for directions.

"I tell him it's down the street," he said. "Next thing I know, they start shooting."

Tucker dove behind his own truck, but he had already been shot in the chest. He never saw a gun, never saw who pulled the trigger and never came up with a logical explanation for the shooting.

"I ain't got no hatred toward nobody," he said. "I just got caught up in the wrong spot. I ain't mad."

Friends of the other survivor, David Hall, say he's not angry either, just confused.

"It's kind of crazy, you know?" Hall's friend, Kent Johnson, said. "People going by shooting people just because of their color, that doesn't make any sense."

Hall wasn't available to speak on camera, but his friends said he was also on a porch and a guy asked him for directions, then Hall got shot in the stomach.

While the investigation moves forward, Hall's friends say it's good to talk about the shootings, especially with kids.

"You can show them that no matter who you are, what you are or what color you are, you can still get along, have understanding, work things out, work together," Hall's friend, Waylain Johnson, said.

Deon Tucker says his experience hasn't changed his mind about Tulsa or race relations. He's just glad he doesn't have to be afraid to stand on his front steps anymore.

Tucker also said he's not mad at the suspects, he's just glad police made the arrests. He says the men who shot him should go to prison, but not get the death penalty.

The two men accused of shooting all five people appeared before a Tulsa County judge Monday morning. The judge set bond for Jake England and Alvin Watts at more than $9 million each.
