He was expected to make an initial court appearance as early as Friday morning.

Mark Gassett was carrying groceries while walking home from a Catholic Charities building Tuesday when Kori Ali Muhammad shot him in the chest, according to police.

Fresno police said Muhammad, was also wanted in connection with the shooting of a security guard and has a criminal record.

Dyer said Muhammad fired at least 16 rounds from a large-caliber handgun in less than a minute at four downtown Fresno locations at about 10:45 a.m. local time before he was spotted running through the streets by a police officer.

Authorities say 39-year-old Muhammad, who is black, was motivated by racial hatred, seeking to kill as many white people as he could.

Dyer said he doesn't think the suspect's desire to kill stemmed from religious views, but rather racist views.

Francine Williams, mother of security guard Carl Williams, 25, described her son as a kind and giving person who had recently gotten engaged. Police found no weapons on him, but he was in possession of a speed loader for a revolver and.357 caliber bullets. It was not immediately known if she has an attorney. They scattered, and Muhammad picked the one who was older and appeared heavier: David Jackson, 58, of Fresno.

Muhammad was on foot when he was arrested, and purportedly yelled "allahu akbar" before police took him into custody.

Tens of thousands pour into Venezuela streets
It comes amid the violent demonstrations across Venezuela that we have reported on here. According to Rascon, "More than 400 arrested, at least seven people killed".

Gassett's ex-wife Lisa Gassett told The Fresno Bee (http://bit.ly/2pHgsHy ) that he had faced hard times but had been working to improve his life. The couple has two children.

Faith leaders and Mark Gassett's loved ones met for a prayer walk and vigil Thursday.

One of the three victims was shot at a bus stop near a Catholic Charities office and another was shot in the agency's parking lot.

The Fresno diocesan statement urged Catholics to reflect on what they experienced, stressing that "anger and outrage are certainly a natural reaction; yet, these feelings must also be experienced as an invitation to prayerful reflection".

Brian Levin, director of Cal State San Bernardino's Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism, said Muhammad's social media postings include numerous references to terms used by the Nation of Islam, which has been labeled a racist hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

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. He could face the death penalty.

The Fresno Police Department, California has apprehended a male black separatist, Kori Ali Muhammad who randomly killed three white people chanting "God is Great" in Arabic.

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.
