Clinton says her 'heart breaks' for slain Tulsa man's family

TULSA, Okla. (AP) " Hillary Clinton says her "heart breaks" for the family of a man from Lebanon living in Oklahoma who police say was fatally shot by his neighbor.

Khalid Jabara's family says the neighbor, Stanley Majors, called them "dirty Arabs," ''filthy Lebanese," ''Aye-rabs," and "Mooslems," even though they are Christian.

Jabara was shot to death on his front porch Aug. 12. Police have arrested Majors on a first-degree murder complaint but prosecutors have yet to file formal charges in the case.

Clinton shared a Facebook post Thursday from Jabara's family. The Democratic presidential candidate wrote on Facebook that the country must unite "to ensure that no other family loses a beloved son or daughter because of prejudice and bigotry."
