A man who authorities said fatally shot three men apparently chosen at random had posted on social media a dislike for white people and government officials Fresno California police Chief Jerry Dyer said

Muhammad then continued walking on Mildreda and approached Fulton Street, where he fatally shot another man before reloading his weapon, Dyer said. At times, the suspect laughed while detailing the killings to police.

A Facebook profile page for a Kori Ali Muhammad from Fresno paid homage to black pride and black nationalism, with images of the red, green and black Pan-African flag and a raised fist.

"Kori Muhammad is not a terrorist, but he is a racist, and he's filled with hate", Dyer said. Muhammad said he didn't want police to be forced to shoot him and that he is not a coward.

"I did it. I shot them", Muhammad told officers as they arrested him, according to the chief.

David Jackson tried to flee from the assailant who was targeting white men, police said. He told investigators that he did not like white men and that "white people were responsible for keeping the black people down".

He told investigators that he hid out in a ravine and practiced voodoo rituals after the Motel 6 slayings.

Authorities say the man suspected of killing three white men in a racially charged attack in Fresno says he killed a motel security guard days earlier because the guard disrespected him.

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. Muhammad had gone there to meet a woman, and he argued with security who asked him to leave.

Muhammad shot Jackson twice and ran off, ditching his gun, which still hasn't been recovered, Dyer said. Dyer says he watched detectives investigate, then left and hid by a dumpster.

(CNN) - The Fresno killing spree that left several families fatherless started when the gunman thought a man disrespected him.

Francine Williams said Wednesday that she was in shock but also at peace because she got to tell her son how much she loved him and how proud he made her a few days before his death. He said Muhammad is a Muslim who practices voodoo and has not attended a mosque in 25 years. Carl Williams told her he loved her, too.

Reloading as he went, Muhammad walked toward a bus stop near Catholic Charities, where three men saw him and began to run away. Police are now searching for the man who picked up the gun.

Gassett and Jackson were both clients of Catholic Charities and shot near the charity's Fresno headquarters.

Muhammad starting running, until he saw a police auto, which was there within minutes.

Steve E. Wright, assistant district attorney for Fresno County, says the case against Kori Ali Muhammad will likely be submitted to his office Thursday. Wright says he expects the arraignment will be scheduled for Friday.
