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.

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)
