Fresno rampage suspect details each day of killing spree to police

Kori Ali Muhammad has walked police step-by-step through the process of how he killed three people and is showing no remorse for his crimes.

Muhammad had a long criminal history and filled his social media feeds with posts about black separatism, reparations and "white devils".

The suspect reportedly launched the attack at different scenes.

"Just the thoughtful prayers and everything mean the world to us", said Lisa Gassett the mother of Mark's children.

Kori Ali Muhammad, 39, has been remarkably cooperative with investigators and is "proud" of what he allegedly did - murder three people in the streets of Fresno on Tuesday after killing a security guard at a Motel 6 last week, cops said.

When he learned he was wanted in the security guard killing, Muhammad made a decision to take out as many other white men as possible before he was caught, Dyer said.

After the original shooting, Muhammad ran behind the motel and climbed onto the roof of a nearby 7-Eleven, where he hid through Thursday night. They scattered, and Muhammad picked the one who was older and appeared heavier: David Jackson, 58, of Fresno. He told police he gave himself up easily because, as the chief related, he had "respect for police".

He then headed toward Catholic Charities in the 100 block of North Fulton Street and fired a second fatal volley of gunfire, killing a man in the parking lot. They say this shooting spree may have been triggered after they released his name as the wanted suspect in the death of security guard Carl Williams. An unarmed security guard (shot and killed days before), a utility worker who was a father of three, a charity worker and a veteran trying to get his life back on track.

After being missing for more than a month, a 15-year-old Tennessee girl was found near a cabin in a remote part of northern California and the 50-year-old teacher accused of kidnapping her was arrested. He then shot and killed the man he encountered next.

Fugitive Joseph Jakubowski captured in Vernon County
Two BearCats, armored vehicles used by law enforcement, on the scene made the initial contact, officials said Friday. The man's description matched that of Jakubowski and the officers took him into custody without incident, he added.

Muhammad also shot Mark Gassett, 37, of Fresno, who had just picked up groceries at a Catholic Charities building.

Police say Muhammad gave rare and unusual details about his movements and the killings over several hours of questioning following his arrest, even returning with officers to the crimes scenes and demonstrating his actions.

Police believe that at some point Muhammad had learned that he was being sought in the Motel 6 shooting and decided "he was going to kill as many people as he could today and that's what he set out to do", said Dyer.

Police are searching for the revolver Muhammad said he tossed into a pile of clothing.

Prosecutors say they're holding off on three additional counts in the deaths of three white men Tuesday while investigators piece together their case.

Kori Muhammad will make his first court appearance Friday morning.

He said Muhammad then took a city bus and ended up at a ravine, which would become his hideaway for the next few days.

"I unfriended him about two years ago on Facebook", Jojo Romelo, who met Muhammad in 2014 at a nonprofit public access TV studio in downtown, told NBC station KSEE. He also faces at least two additional charges of assault with a deadly weapon.
