The suspect in a series of shootings in downtown Fresno wrote frequently about the conflict between whites and blacks and did not seem well in recent days, according to family members.

Kori Ali Muhammad, 39, has been arrested in the shootings, which killed three people. Police have not provided a motive in the attack. As he was taken into custody, he yelled out “Allahu Akbar,” Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said. But officials emphasized that they were not sure whether this was an act of terrorism, the Los Angeles Times reports.

In a span of a few minutes Tuesday morning, Muhammad, 39, fatally shot three white men he randomly encountered while walking through the streets of Fresno, police allege. The rampage was preceded by a deadly encounter Thursday night at a Motel 6, where police say Muhammad killed another white man — a security guard.

Together the killings were Muhammad’s contribution to a war he believed was ongoing between white and black men, said his father, Vincent Taylor.

Police Mag needs to update their story here. I just saw on ABC World News Tonight that this suspect hated white people, stated this, and only targeted white people. He let a Latino family go. He has been charged with hate crimes.

I hope his background is fully investigated. I'll bet my paycheck that this guy is a charter member or at the very least faithfully attended Black Lives Matter meetings. If he was the media will refuse to report it.

What supporters of BLM don't want to admit is that their group is a hate group that has now embolden many murders like the above suspect. I again ask why is BLM allowed to continue and why are they never questioned or held accountable?

Of course the media is no where near this. This asshole IS ALMOST GUARANTTED TO BE PART OF BLM. They don't want to say shit, cause the media isn't anywhere near it should be on this.
