Man in custody after Calif. shooting near Catholic Charities

Police: Fresno gunman targeting whites chose 3 men at random

He told detectives: "White people are responsible for keeping the black people down".

In the past, Muhammad posted messages on social media that referred to white people as "devils".

Muhammad had posted on social media a dislike for white people and government officials, Fresno, California, police Chief Jerry Dyer said.

"This is exclusively based on race", he said, adding: "He wanted to kill as many people as he could and that's what he set out to do". Chief Dyer says surveillance video shows Williams' murder and the attempted shooting of a second security guard.

That's when Muhammad - armed with a revolver - decided that he was going to kill as many white males as possible, Dyer said, adding that the Muhammad told investigators that he did not like white men.

Muhammad shaved his head and face to change his appearance, Dyer said.

Disclosing that several more gunshots were detected nearby, Dyer said a total of 16 rounds were fired in less than a minute in four different locations. And 58-year old David Jackson, who was waiting with two other men at a bus stop also on Fulton.

After firing at the truck passenger, Muhammad walked west on East Mildreda Avenue, where he came across a resident and opened fire, Dyer said, but missed his target. Evacuated office workers stand by, with a deceased shooting victim down on the sidewalk Tuesday, April 18, 2017 in Fresno, Calif. Three men were killed Tuesday and a 25-year-old security guard was killed last week. He had been associated with gangs, but he was not a confirmed member, police said. He killed Zackary Randalls, 34, a father of two preschoolers who had just started work as a customer-service representative for the utility and was doing a ride-along. That is the promise that Eddie Valencia is making to his best friend of 15 years, one of three white men shot dead Tuesday in Fresno, California, in what police are calling a hate crime.

A woman who identified herself as Taylor's grandmother said Tuesday that the family last saw him on Sunday.


Dyer says Muhammad claims he did so out of respect for the officer and to show the courage of conviction for his alleged crimes and the reasoning behind them.

"My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims". The suspect, Kori Ali Muhammad, 39, is black, police said. He was crying, but she believed he was simply going out of town. He was allowed to speak to his mother and told her not to worry about him because his "magic" is strong. "He was a good-hearted person, very caring, very loving", a tearful Wagner told CNN on Wednesday. "I'll protect you. Don't you worry about it.' He really didn't want to go but he was going".

The rambling profile includes militant and apocalyptic language and repeated demands to "let black people go".

A posting on Monday says, "My kill rate increases tremendously on the other side".

Another victim, a 37-year-old man, had just gone shopping at a Catholic Charities building when he was gunned down. "Not get rid of them as in kill them", his father said.

On what appeared to be his Facebook page, he repeatedly posted '#LetBlackPeopleGo" and encouraged "black warriors" to "mount up'.

Authorities say the man suspected of killing three white men in a racially charged attack in Fresno laughed multiple times as he recounted the rampage to detectives.

"It could have been her", Collins said.
