The self-proclaimed rapper who shot and killed three people in downtown Fresno because he ‘hates white people’ has been pictured in police custody.
Kori Ali Muhammad, 39, shouted ‘Allahu Akhbar,’ meaning ‘God is great,’ in Arabic while being apprehended shortly after the shootings on Tuesday.
The shooter was seen being calmly transported by two cops, with his hands cuffed behind his back, after his arrest.
He later told police that he hates white people. His victims were all Caucasian males apparently chosen at random.
Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer called the acts ‘unprovoked’ and ‘solely based on race’. They are investigating the incident as a hate crime.
