TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa attorney Clark Brewster has released a 7-minute jailhouse interview with his client, Jacob England.

England, 19, is accused in the random north Tulsa shooting spree that took place on April 6.

The Tulsa County District Attorney filed murder and hate-crimes charges in the case on Friday. All five victims, three of whom died, were black.

In the jailhouse video, Brewster asks England if he has best friends who are black, to which England replies, "Yes."

England later said, "The line of work that I was in and the place I worked, we always got along with everybody. It didn't matter what color you were."

About the Facebook postings in which England wrote racial slurs, and added fuel to the theory that he may have killed to avenge his father's murder, England said he was simply expressing himself.

"It was just to express the way I was upset about the guy who shot my dad," England said. "That's the only time I ever express anything like that about somebody."

Both men were each charged with three counts of first-degree murder, two counts of shooting with intent to kill and five counts of malicious intimidation or harassment.
