Man vowed to kill white men

"He wouldn't want people to be divided by this", Valencia said.

On Tuesday, a man who police believes shot and killed three people in three different locations in Fresno, California, has been arrested.

Dyer said he doesn't think the suspect's desire to kill stemmed from religious views, but rather racist views. Another, a 58-years-old man, was also shot and killed in a nearby parking lot.

The suspect then fled and hid on a gas station roof.

Randalls leaves his wife of eight years, Katie, a 3-year-old daughter and a 4-year-old son, his friend Jim Light told CNN.

Muhammad has a long record of criminal charges and a history of mental illness.

Dyer says Muhammad told investigators that he wanted to be known as someone who killed many white people and not just a security guard.

When the man learned Tuesday morning that he was the suspect in the motel murder case, Dyer says he made a decision to murder as many white men as he could in a form of racial retribution.

The suspect in the shooting deaths of three people in Fresno told his family there was a war going on between blacks and whites in America. According to the AP, they had issued an alert prior to Tuesday's shooting spree saying that Muhammad was armed and unsafe, and that he was wanted in the shooting death of 25-year-old Carl Williams, a security guard at a Motel 6.

"What Kori (Muhammad) said was that he fired his weapon at Carl Williams because he felt that Carl Williams had disrespected him", Dyer said.

Authorities say a man picked up the gun that a suspect used to kill three white men in a racially charged attack in Fresno and are urging him to turn himself in. The man fell to the ground, and Muhammad thought he'd killed him.

He told police that the security guard had disrespected him during an earlier altercation at a Motel 6.

In 2005, he was indicted on charges of cocaine possession with intent to distribute, and possession of two rifles and a semi-automatic handgun.

Muhammad told police that while he is a Muslim, he practices voodoo rituals.

Per the LA Times, Muhammad was born Kori Taylor and changed his name to Kori Ali Muhammad as a teenager, likely as he became interested in the teachings of the Nation of Islam - an African American group labeled by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group.

Prosecutors say Muhammad is expected to be charged with four counts of murder in the three killings Tuesday and in the slaying last week of a motel security guard. He aimed at a third, killing the 37-year-old on the pavement as he walked with a bag of groceries in a neighbourhood lined with tall trees.

"He told her not to cry, he is still alive, and his magic was powerful, and he started laughing", Dyer said.

During the rampage, Muhammad shot at a resident who he encountered in the neighborhood multiple times but missed, Dyer said Tuesday.

Before surrendering to police, Zori Muhammad allegedly shouted "Allahu akbar" - "God is greater" in Arabic - and expressed hatred toward white people and the government, Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said.

He claimed insanity and his lawyer requested a psychiatric examination, saying Muhammad "appeared eccentric with some weird beliefs".

Dyer believes that race was the motivation behind the killings on Tuesday as well as Williams.
