Fresno Shooter Kills 3 In Suspected Hate Crime

21 April, 2017, 19:13 | Author: Eloise Marshall

The suspect, Kori Ali. A man shot and killed three people on the streets of downtown Fresno on Tu. "We got a black man killing white people".

Here's how police say a fatal argument at a motel led to the deaths of three more men, allegedly victims of hate crimes. He is also charged with attempted murder for shooting at a second security guard.

"I unfriended him about two years ago on Facebook", Jojo Romelo, who met Muhammad in 2014 at a nonprofit public access TV studio in downtown, told NBC station KSEE.

Muhammad watched police investigate that murder overnight from the rooftop of a nearby gas station.

He said Muhammad then took a city bus and ended up at a ravine, which would become his hideaway for the next few days.

Muhammad told police that he is Muslim but had't been to a mosque in 20 years and prays to numerous gods and practices voodoo rituals.

This is what happens when a racist killer operates around a thoroughly racist worldview.

"It shows communities that police are aware of it and responding", Clark said.

Muhammad walked to Fresno's Tower District - a bustling area full of shops, businesses and restaurants. The suspect lead detectives through the murder scenes and explained to investigators what he did and why, laughing while he made the descriptions, Dyer said.

Before Tuesday's events, Muhammad was already being sought in connection with the shooting death last week of Carl Williams, 25, a security guard at a Motel 6.

"And that's what he set out to do".

The system can tell police the location and time the shots were fired, how many there were, and sometimes the type of weapon, the number of shooters and whether they changed location as they fired. "He did that", Dyer said.

PG&E employee Zackary Randalls, 34, and Catholic Charities clients Mark Gassett, 37, and David Martin Jackson, 58, had the misfortune of crossing paths with crazed gunman Kori Ali Muhammad in Fresno.

The man had just gone shopping at a Catholic Charities building when he was gunned down.

Muhammad shot Gassett in the chest, Dyer said. Muhammad then stood over Gassett and fired two more rounds into him.

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

"He'd love it. he'd be overwhelmed. we are all overwhelmed by the turnout it's great", said Mike Mudgett, a family friend.

And David Jackson was also gunned down in that charity's parking lot.

Muhammad did not run from Fresno police officers because he said he respected them, according to the police chief.

Dyer described Muhammad as an extremely callous man.

Muhammad, born Cory Allen Taylor, had a criminal history that dated to 1997 and court documents also indicated that he had been determined in 2005 to suffer from a mental disease rendering him incapable of standing trial in a felony case.

Carl Williams was shot and killed while working as a security guard at a Fresno motel last week.

The police labeled the murders a hate crime, but did not go so far as to label it terrorism, despite the fact that Muhammad repeatedly yelled, "Allahu Akbar."
