Police: Fresno gunman targeting whites chose 3 men at random

Fresno Police chief Jerry Dyer reviews notes on the triple fatal shooting before addressing the media Tuesday, April 18, 2017, in Fresno, Calif. A man shot and killed three people on the streets of downtown Fresno on Tuesday, shouting “God is great” in Arabic during at least one of the slayings and later telling police that he hates white people, authorities said. Kori Ali Muhammad, 39, was arrested shortly after the rampage, whose victims were all white, police said. He also was wanted in connection with another killing days earlier, in which a security guard was gunned down at a Fresno motel after responding to a disturbance. (John Walker/Fresno Bee via AP)
