In race war, man goes on killing spree, murders 3

In race war, man goes on killing spree, murders 3

The suspect in this week's Fresno, California mass shooting is set to appear in court to face a first-degree murder charge in a killing five days earlier.

"He wouldn't want people to be divided by this", Valencia said.

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

Laurel, who knew the young father for 12 years, said he'll be tattooing in Randalls' memory this weekend at his Fresno shop, not far from the scene of the shooting. "Not get rid of them as in kill them", his father said.

More details of the shooting that killed 3 people, as well as remembrances of the victims, continued to emerge Wednesday and fill in the full picture of the tragic criminal rampage in this Central Valley city.

The suspect, who is black, was candid in explaining his actions from Thursday night to Tuesday morning, when he methodically shot and killed three white men on the same block, the police chief said.

Determined not to die for having killed a security guard, Muhammad decided that he would "go out" by killing "as many white males as possible" using a.357 Magnum revolver he called "the Black Python", Dyer said he told investigators.

Pointing to Muhammad's repeated references to "white devils" and "Yakub" - the villainous figure responsible for creating white people, according to Nation of Islam lore - Levin said it is likely Muhammad thought he was taking part in a race war against whites.

Killed on Tuesday along N. Fulton Street in Fresno were Zackary David Randalls, 34, of Clovis, Mark James Gassett, 37, of Fresno and David Martin Jackson, 58, of Fresno.

Pal Eddie Valencia who was with Randalls as life ebbed out of him, said his friend was colour blind.

The Fresno County District Attorney's Office on Thursday charged Muhammad with the murder last week of security guard Carl Allen Williams III at Motel 6 on Blackstone Avenue.

"When he spoke about the shootings, he did so in a very callous manner", Chief Jerry Dyer said in a press conference Wednesday of Kori Ali Muhammad, the 39-year-old killer.

"We have video evidence, which we will be analyzing to get a detailed description of who this individual is".

The shooting began around 10:45 local time near the headquarters for Catholic Charities.

Muhammad was arrested shortly after the rampage. As for a motive, police said it had something to do with his longstanding hatred. Dyer said he surrendered to a responding officer without incident and later apologized to the chief. Dyer described Muhammad as a "racist" rather than a terrorist. One witness who heard those gunshots said he rushed out of house, which is just a few doors down, and saw one of the victims drop to the ground. "We believe it is a hate crime, definitely a hate crime".

Gassett was carrying a grocery bag of food he had just picked up from the charity when he encountered the gunman.

He had been asked to leave the motel and opened fire because he felt disrespected, the police chief said.

Dyer says Muhammad went with officers to the Motel 6, where he is accused of killing unarmed security guard Carl Williams.
