Police say they don't have a motive in the shootings that left three people dead and two others critically wounded in Tulsa, Okla.

The victims were black, and the two suspects who were arrested overnight at a home just north of Tulsa are white -- but police haven't described the shootings as racially motivated.

The head of the Tulsa NAACP says the arrests have provided a great sense of relief.

Police say the two suspects will face three counts of first-degree murder and two counts of shooting with intent to kill. They say a tip led a special operations team and other forces to make the arrests.
