Shooting suspect due in court in assault case

Posted: Updated:

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A man facing murder charges in a Tulsa shooting rampage that left three people dead earlier this year is due in court on a separate charge of allegedly assaulting a jail guard.

Jake England, 20, was charged after he allegedly elbowed and cursed a guard as he was being taken to his cell at the Tulsa jail from the recreation yard on Nov. 1. He is to have a hearing Wednesday.

England and Alvin Watts, 33, face murder and hate crime charges in the April rampage that killed three people and wounded two others. They're to be arraigned Jan. 9.

All five victims were black, and authorities say England may have targeted black people because he wanted to avenge his father's shooting death by a black man two years earlier.
