Fresno gunman gave police blow-by-blow of shootings of 3 men

Digging up more on Kori Ali Muhammad's social media presence and the warning signs before Tuesday's shooting rampage.

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. Police Chief Jerry Dyer stated that he fired at least 16 bullets from a pistol that he carried with him until he was finally arrested by the police.

Three men were having a seemingly ordinary day in downtown Fresno, California, before they were singled out at random and killed by a black gunman targeting white victims, police said. Taylor said he warned a probation officer about his son's hatred and his plan to kill white people years ago but he says he doesn't think anyone ever followed up.

"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".

Wearing an LA Dodgers baseball cap in honor of Randalls, a longtime Dodgers fan, Valencia described his friend as "the best", a man who "loved his two kids with everything that he had".

Maria Praise told CNN she ran inside and locked the doors when she heard the sound of gunfire. The driver was not hit and sped toward the police department, but his partner could not be saved.

This 2017 photo provided by Eddie Valencia shows Zackary Randalls with one of his children. He described the 34-year-old as an open-minded person with a sharp wit and a big heart. He also is accused of opening fire on two people who were not injured. "There were no boundaries with race, religions, beliefs, with anything. He was a stand-up guy".

Muhammad is black. The Fresno Bee reports ( http://bit.ly/2pAwbZ4 ) the faith lead. 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. The gun was then picked up by a man who was seen on security camera, according to Dyer, who urged the man to turn himself in to authorities.

He says Martin Luther King "wanted to hug their hands, and get along with them, and lick their feet and they still killed him".

Muhammad was arrested shortly after the rampage.

Muhammad will face four counts of murder and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, officials said.

Muhammad led investigators through the crime scene at the motel as well as the locations from yesterday's shootings, Dyer said. He said Muhammad is a Muslim who practices voodoo and has not attended a mosque in 25 years.

On Tuesday, Muhammad headed over to a store called The Brass Unicorn in search of crystals to use for more rituals. Chief Dyer said after Muhammad learned he was wanted in connection with the Motel 6 murder he decided he would kill as many people as he could before going to jail - adding he believes this was racially motivated based on social media posts.

"Kori Muhammad is a very calloused individual".
