Fresno shooting rampage
Suspect who shot dead 3, wanted to kill as many people as possible, police say.
Police said the man who killed three people on a shooting spree in downtown Fresno, California, on Tuesday while shouting "Allahu Akbar" wanted to kill as many people as possible after a warrant was released for his arrest in the murder of a motel security guard last week. Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said Kori Ali Muhammad, 39, knew he was being searched for and he "decided he was going to kill more people."
According to Dyer, Muhammad surrendered to officers at the scene and told police "you guys are looking for me."
Police do not think the shooting spree was tied to terrorism and was "solely based on race" as all the victims were white males. Muhammad went by the nickname "Black Jesus" and has made posts against white people and the government on his Facebook page. "These individuals who were chosen today did not do anything to deserve what they got," Dyer said. "These were unprovoked attacks by an individual that was intent on carrying out homicides today. He did that."
Dyer said the victims were aged 34, 37, and 58.
