BLACK MUSLIM Kori Ali Muhammad, 39, shot and killed three people on the streets of downtown Fresno on Tuesday, shouting ‘Allah is greater’ in Arabic while being arrested and later told police that he hates white people, authorities said. Police said the shooting was an ‘unprovoked’ act that was ‘solely based on race,’ which characterizes the spree as a hate crime.
UK DAILY MAIL Muhammad, 39, was apprehended shortly after the shootings. His victims were all white males apparently chosen at random. He is also wanted in connection with another killing days earlier, in which a security guard was gunned down at a Fresno motel after responding to a disturbance.
Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said the victims were shot seconds apart around 10:45am in close proximity in areas around downtown.
Muhammad was identified as a suspect in the murder of security guard Carl Williams at the Motel 6 in Fresno on Sunday after surveillance footage captured the killing on tape. Williams, 25, was unarmed and was killed after allegedly getting into an altercation with Muhammad.
