From Fresno Bee:
Three people were shot and killed after a man went on a shooting spree in downtown Fresno and at Catholic Charities Tuesday at Divisadero and Fulton streets in central Fresno, police Chief Jerry Dyer said.
The 39-year-old suspect, identified as Kori Ali Muhammad, is now in custody, Dyer said. He is also suspected in the fatal shooting of a security guard outside a Motel 6 in central Fresno Sunday. He is facing four counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder, Dyer said. He said Muhammad had expressed hatred of whites; all of the victims were white. Dyer called it a “random act of violence.”
Officers responding to the initial shotspotter reports found Muhammad running south on Fulton. Muhammad dove to the ground and yelled “Allahu Akhbar” before he was taken into custody, Dyer said. Although police found rounds of .357 caliber bullets and speed loaders for a revolver when Muhammad was taken into custody, no weapon was found, Dyer said.
From Your Central Valley:
Kori Ali Muhammad, 39, shouted “Allahu Akbar” as police tackled him to the ground after the shootings which were spread over four locations, Police Chief Jerry Dyer said.
The victims appeared to be random, Dyer said.
Shot Spotter detected the first gunshots around 10:45 a.m. Muhammad shot into a PG&E vehicle killing the passenger. The driver sped away and drove to Fresno Police headquarters.
Muhammad continued walking and opened fire at a local resident but missed. Shortly after, he encountered another resident and shot and killed that person.
He then continued to the area of Catholic Charities where he shot and killed a person in the parking lot.
Here are some comments from the local police department.
It will take some time to figure out whether or not this shooting was connected to a specific terrorist group but does it really matter?
ISIS has been influencing terror attacks across the globe and this could very well be another one.
The confirmed reports of “Allahu Akbar” and this man’s apparent hatred for “white people” speaks volumes.
This is horrifying and disturbing. LET US ALL SEND OUR PRAYERS TO THE VICTIMS’ FAMILIES, LET US ALL PRAY FOR THEIR SOULS!
This is a sad day for America. This should not have happened… REST IN PEACE, INNOCENT PEOPLE! I HOPE THAT THIS MANIC IS GOING TO BE PUNISHED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!
