Per motel policy, visitors must provide identification at the office, and Williams went to the room to enforce that rule. Williams asked the man and the woman to go with him to the motel office, Dyer said, which they did. But as the two people were walking back to the room, followed by Williams, an argument erupted between the guard and the pair. That’s when the man pulled out a handgun and fired multiple shots, striking Williams. Police spent hours at the motel Friday morning interviewing witnesses and checking security video, which Dyer said captured the shooting and also shows the suspect firing toward the motel.

A gunman who walked through Fresno randomly shooting and killing three men screamed "Allahu Akbar" while being taken into custody, according to authorities. Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said 39-year-old Kori Ali Muhammad first opened fire on a passenger inside a PG&E truck in the 300 block of North Van Ness Boulevard at about 10:45 a.m. The driver of the truck, who was not struck, drove the victim to the Fresno Police Department's headquarters in downtown Fresno and alerted officers. The victim later succumbed to his injuries. Authorities said Muhammad walked westbound and encountered another man and opened fire on him. Officials said the shots missed. He then walked to Fulton Street where he came across a man and opened fire, killing him, according to police. Muhammad continued walking to Catholic Charities where he encountered a man in the parking lot and killed him, authorities said. In all, Dyer said 16 shots were fired within one minute at four different locations.
Muhammad was wanted in connection with a shooting death at a Motel 6 that occurred last week, according to police. Muhammad, who police said has a prior criminal history, had previously posted to Facebook that he didn't like white people and expressed several anti-government sentiments, Dyer said. All the victims, who were randomly targeted, were white, according to police. Officials were still working to identify the victims. Dyer said the FBI had been notified and that the ATF would also be contacted. While Muhammad had been taken into custody, Dyer said a gun had not been recovered, though the suspect had .357 caliber ammunition on him. Dyer said it was the same type of ammunition used in the murder at the Motel 6.
Muhammad will be booked for murder and attempted murder, authorities said. Dyer indicated it was "still too early" to know if the shootings were an act of terrorism.
