Kori Ali Muhammad, a 39-year-old man who was wanted in connection with the shooting death of a security guard outside a motel, was arrested for killing three random victims in what appears to be a delusional effort to start a race war, said Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer.
Muhammad, 39, who also goes by Kori MacSun McWallace, was taken into custody after allegedly shooting a total of four people in Fresno, California killing three of them
The shootings occurred over a two-day span beginning on Monday at a Motel 6 where security guard Carl Williams was gunned down outside. The following day, it is alleged that Muhammad randomly fired his weapon at two people standing outside of Catholic Charities, killing them both. He then shot at a passenger in a PG & E truck, killing him, and at another passerby who was unharmed.
Muhammad was on foot when he was arrested, and purportedly yelled “allahu akbar” before police took him into custody. Police found no weapons on him, but he was in possession of a speed loader for a revolver and .357 caliber bullets.
Muhammad’s father, Vincent Taylor, told The LA Times that his son believed that he was part of an ongoing war between whites and blacks, and that “a battle was about to take place.”
Muhammad is said to be homeless. He is also an aspiring rapper, who goes by the name B-God Mac Sun. He has music on his YouTube about white devils, annihilating enemies and watching them bleed.
His Facebook has similar themes, with homemade memes calling various Caucasians “grafted white devil skunks.” Another meme depicts the Great Mahdi Fard Muhammad, the founder of the Nation of Islam is destroying the “grafted white devil skunks.”
Muhammad also posted a number of pictures of weather patterns on his social media and referenced weather events in his music, which is likely related to the mysterious nation he repeatedly referred to, called the “LOST FOUND ASIAIATIC BLACK NATION IN America”.
Muhammad posted demands for reparations and separations, alluding to natural disasters occurring if his requests were not met. Requests included “17 Million in immediate material wealth,” “to receive the US Virgin Islands,” and “25 years of support,” though what kind was not mentioned.
This information was posted on a page devoted to anti-government agitator Alex Jones on Tuesday, the same day he attempted to murder four people.
Muhammad is facing two counts of attempted murder and four counts of murder according to Dyer, who said the suspect gave “very specific, detailed” information to police that led officers to believe this was a hate-motivated crime, but did not elaborate on what those statements were.
“If in fact he’s lashing out at white people — white males in this case — that would constitute a hate crime,” Dyer said. “We believe it is a hate crime, definitely a hate crime.”
The chief said investigators don’t believe Muhammad worked with anyone else in the attack, calling him “an individual that is filled with hate, filled with anger.”
