Man killed 3 on street, says he 'hates white people'

At least two of his victims were white.

Muhammad was already wanted in connection to the killing of an unarmed security guard at a Motel 6 last week, police said.

Dyer told reporters that the three people were shot minutes apart in close proximity in areas around the downtown area of Fresno.

The second shooting was shortly after, during which the gunman fired a number of rounds at a man, killing him.

All three men killed in Tuesday's shootings are white.

"Immediately upon the individual seeing the officer he literally dove onto the ground and was taken into he yelled out 'Allahu Akhbar, '" police chief Jerry Dyer said at a press conference held on the same day, according to local news outlet ABC30.

The man who authorities believe gunned down three people in Fresno, California on Tuesday filled his social media pages with black nationalist rhetoric and even rapped about the "white devil" and getting justice for his "black kin" prior to his alleged deadly shooting spree.

The shooting happened outside a Catholic Charities building, but spokeswoman Teresa Dominguez said the charity doesn't believe the suspect was tied to the nonprofit organization.

Sayed Ali Ghazvini said Tuesday that he and other faith leaders are trying to identify Kori Ali Muhammad. Muhammad then allegedly reloaded at a bus stop and shot and killed the third victim in the Catholic Charities parking lot.

Fresno city spokesman Mark Standriff says county offices are on lockdown, and people have been urged to shelter in place.

Ghazvini offered prayers to the victims and their families. She says the charity is working with police to provide information.
