Fresno murders investigated as a hate crime

Police in Fresno said that Muhammad screamed "Allahu Akbar" before he was taken into custody.

Dyer says Muhammad isn't a terrorist but is a racist and described the slayings as a hate crime.

Muhammad told officers at his arrest that he was the guy they were looking for, Dyer said.

Once he saw the officers on the scene, Muhammad got on the ground, Dyer said Tuesday.

"He made a decision to himself that he was not going to go to jail for shooting a security guard, that he was going to kill as many people as he could today and that's what he set out to do", the police chief said.

Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer says 39-year-old Kori Ali Muhammad, who is black, told investigators he chose to kill white people after police on Tuesday publicly identified him as a suspect in last week's slaying of a security guard.

"He does not like white people", Dyer said, citing the suspect's statements after being arrested and his Facebook postings.

Muhammad told investigators he is Muslim but prays to seven different gods and has not been to a mosque in 25 years. Fresno police chief Jerry Dyer holds a news conference to go over details of Tuesday's triple homicide shooting in Fresno at the Fresno Police Department on Wednesday, April 19, 2017. They had published a photo of Muhammad, asked for the public's help in finding him and offered a reward. After police left, he climbed down and went to a nearby school and hid by a trash dumpster. As for a motive, police said it had something to do with his longstanding hatred. He told her he loved her, too.

All three men killed in Tuesday's shootings are white.

Jackson ran, and Muhammad chased him, Dyer said.

One of the shooting victims was driven to police in a Pacific Gas and Electric Company truck, Dyer said. Police arrested Kori Ali Muhammad, who is black, saying he singled out white victims and killed them at random.

One victim was shot Tuesday while sitting in a utility truck.

Jackson's roommate said they were waiting for a bus home after going to the bank and then stopping to use the bathroom at Catholic Charities.

Kori Ali Muhammad told his father he was in the midst of a race war.

Dyer said Muhammad approached a vehicle in between shootings, but he spared the lives of two Latina women who were in the auto with a child.

Dyer believes that race was the motivation behind the killings on Tuesday as well as Williams.
