OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Authorities say a Facebook page in which a man claims his television is possessed by the devil belongs to the man suspected of shooting three people at an Oklahoma City restaurant before being killed by two armed bystanders. A police spokeswoman says investigators believe the page is that of 28-year-old Alexander Tilghman, who was fatally shot outside the restaurant Thursday night. Police say Tilghman shot and wounded a woman and two girls. Officials said Friday they were in good condition.

ATOKA, Okla. (AP) - The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says a 25-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a shooting in which two people were killed and a third was wounded in southeastern Oklahoma. Investigators say Hershal DeWayne Hatley was taken into custody Friday on two counts of first-degree murder and one of shooting with intent to kill. The OSBI says Hatley is accused in Friday's shooting deaths of 33-year-old Sami Williams and 73-year-old Richard Miller.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma lawmakers say their voting records are being distorted by Facebook ads sponsored by a recently formed group that fights tax proposals in the state Legislature. The Oklahoman reports that the ads come from No New Oklahoma Taxes, which formed earlier this year to combat Oklahoma tax bills. One ad praises a lawmaker who voted to fund teacher pay raises with a $474 million tax package. She says the ad represents her as someone "who voted against revenue-raising measures, which is untrue."

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Election Board says June 1 is the deadline for registering to vote in the June 26 statewide primary. Officials say June 20 is the deadline to request an absentee ballot for the primary election and that early voting begins June 21. On the ballot will be primaries for the Democratic and Republican nominations for governor, Congressional and legislative seats, and a referendum on whether to authorize medical marijuana.
