Fresno gunman gave police blow-by-blow of shootings of 3 men
Greer said he ran into the Catholic Charities building.
"When he spoke about the shootings, he did so in a very callous manner", Dyer said. The driver wasn't hit and sped toward the police department, but Randalls died. 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. Muhammad also fired at a group of men at a bus stop and chased after one man, who was the heaviest and oldest of the group. Three men were killed Tuesday and a 25-year-old security guard was killed last week.
Randalls was driven to police in a PG&E truck, Dyer said Tuesday. "He was a good hearted person, very caring, very loving". "He was a stand-up guy". Wright says he expects the arraignment will be scheduled for Friday.
Gassett was shot as he was walking away from Catholic Charities with a bag of food, his mother said. His body was draped in a blanket on the sidewalk leading to Stephen Hughes' home.
Muhammad dropped shell casings and reloaded his gun before setting of to Catholic Charities on North Fulton Street in Fresno, where he shot and killed a man he encountered in the parking lot, Dyer said Tuesday.
Fresno police chief Jerry Dyer said: 'These individuals who were chosen today did not do anything to deserve what they got.
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.
Police had put out a news release hours before the shootings Tuesday, saying that Muhammad was armed and risky and wanted over the shooting death of a security guard at a Motel 6 last week. According to the AP, they had issued an alert prior to Tuesday's shooting spree saying that Muhammad was armed and risky, and that he was wanted in the shooting death of 25-year-old Carl Williams, a security guard at a Motel 6. Dyer said Muhammad had gotten in a verbal alteraction with Williams and shot him because he felt "disrespected".
Muhammad watched police investigate that murder overnight from the rooftop of a nearby gas station. Dyer said he surrendered to a responding officer without incident and later apologized to the chief. Muhammad told police he worships seven gods. When he was arrested, Dyer said Muhammad had pendants he called amulets that he said "were for the goal of protecting against evil".
Police have arrested Kori Ali Muhammad, who is black, saying he singled out white victims and killed them at random.
"This is exclusively based on race", he said. Fresno Police say Muhammad was on their radar in connection with a Motel 6 murder last Thursday. Chief Jerry Dyer said.
Kori Ali Muhammad told his father he was in the midst of a race war.. Carl Williams told her he loved her, too. He reportedly posted comments on social media expressing hatred toward white people. He told his family there was a war going on between blacks and whites in America.
When Muhammad later saw a police auto, he surrendered.
Muhammad also repeatedly used the phrase "Black Dragon Lion Hawk" in his Facebook posts, and Levin said such nods to warrior culture are also common in black separatist circles. A flurry of posts emerged in the past day.
His criminal history includes gun, drug and theft arrests. He has also been accused of making terrorist threats and been associated with gangs, but he was not a confirmed member, police said.
He was indicted by a federal grand jury in February 2005 for possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm for drug trafficking and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, after a Fresno police officer searched his vehicle and found two large bags of cocaine, a loaded handgun and two rifles, court records show.
"Sorry, chief", Dyer reported Muhammad as saying.
He also "suffered auditory hallucinations and had at least two prior mental health hospitalisations", according to court documents.
