Tulsa Police believe Jackson shot both Thorsson and White after getting upset over a traffic incident. Police say words were exchanged and Jackson pulled out a handgun and fired nine shots into White's car.

Thorsson died shortly after being taken to the hospital. White died later in the day.

Jackson was booked into the Pulaski County jail in Little Rock Wednesday morning.
