Conservative Review, by Jordan Schachtel, April 18, 2017:
A gunman went on a shooting rampage Tuesday afternoon in Fresno, Calif., murdering three people.
Police said that gunman Kori Ali Muhammad yelled the Islamic war cry “Allahu Akbar” (God is greater) after shooting multiple innocents in the area. According to Los Angeles’ KABC, Muhammed — who expressed a hatred of white people — executed a man in a Catholic Charities parking lot, and also murdered a passenger inside a Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) truck.
In total, the 39-year-old Muhammad fired 16 rounds from a “revolver-style gun” from three different locations.
Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer described the attack as a “random act of violence.”
“Too early to say whether or not this involves terrorism,” Dyer said. “Certainly by the statement that was made it could give that indication, however, there was no statement that was made Thursday night when he shot the security guard. There was no comments made at that time.”
The suspect has a long criminal history, which includes making terrorist threats, police said in their press conference. Muhammad was wanted by authorities in connection to the killing of a security guard outside of a motel last week.
The Fresno Bee reports: “Officers responding to the initial shotspotter reports found Muhammad running south on Fulton. Muhammad dove to the ground and yelled ‘Ali Akbar’ before he was taken into custody.” The Bee also reports that Muhammad also used the phrase “Allahu Akbar” on his Twitter account.
A statement from the affected PG&E read:
“Our thoughts are with all involved in the incident that occurred in Fresno today […] Public and employee safety is always our top priority. We are still gathering information on what happened, and will work to support first responders and law enforcement in their efforts.”
