Words Uttered To His Victims Before Slaying Them Beyond Foul, His Killing Spree Is Over

A gunman shot and killed three people in downtown Fresno, California, on Tuesday of this week before surrendering to police officers.

The suspect is named Kori Ali Muhammad. He reportedly yelled “Allahu akbar” and expressed his hatred of white people and the government during the shootings and in interviews with police afterwards. Note that Muhammad is also suspected in the shooting death of a security guard at a motel the previous Thursday.

According to Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer, when Kori Ali Muhammad learned that he was wanted by authorities for the death of a security guard last week, he decided to take out as many other white men as he could.

"He was going to kill as many white males as possible and that's what he set out to do that day. He said he did not like white men and said white people were responsible for keeping black people down," Dyer noted.

Muhammad "is not a terrorist but he is a racist," Dyer commented.
Note that the black suspect was frank in explaining why he methodically shot and killed three white men on the same block. He said that the Motel 6 security guard had disrespected him during an earlier argument.

Apparently, Muhammad was hiding in a local ravine and practicing voodoo rituals after the motel killing. He claimed that he is Muslim, but he also said he prays to seven different gods and has not attended a mosque in 25 years.

It seems that the gunfire erupted at around 10:45 am on Tuesday on North Van Ness Avenue. A second shooting was reported less than a minute later. Then a third shooting was reported, and a fourth.

Dyer said 16 shots were fired within one minute.

Just a couple of minutes after the first shots were fired, a PG&E pickup truck driver arrived at police headquarters and told them his passenger had been shot by a gunman who came up on foot.

Fresno authorities note that the FBI has been briefed on the shooting, but given the circumstances, it’s not clear a federal terrorism investigation will be launched.
