The two men arrested in connection to a string of deadly shootings in Tulsa, Okla., have been charged with murder. According to police documents, the two suspects have confessed to a Tulsa shooting spree that left three dead.

An affidavit filed Monday says 19-year-old Jake England confessed to shooting three people and 32-year-old Alvin Watts confessed to shooting two.

The shootings early Friday morning left three people dead and two seriously wounded. It's not clear from the affidavit which man shot which victim, but the document says police believe Watts shot two of the three people who died.

Watts and England made their first court appearance Monday via closed circuit TV from jail. Both are charged with three counts of first-degree murder, two counts of shooting with intent to kill and one count of possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

The men were taken into custody Sunday morning following an anonymous tip. They are accused of shooting a total of five people Friday, killing three and critically wounding the other two. All five shootings took place on the city's north side, a predominantly black area.

Bail for each man is set at $10,160,000. They are expected in court again April 16.
