Gun­man gave po­lice blow by blow of shootings

Truro Daily News - - CANADA -

Five days be­fore a ram­page that left three men dead, Kori Ali Muhammad shot an un­armed se­cu­rity guard who he felt had in­sulted him at a Mo­tel 6 when he vis­ited a woman at the ho­tel, po­lice said.

Muhammad shot the guard, 25-year-old Carl Wil­liams, mul­ti­ple times at close range shortly af­ter 11 p.m., po­lice said – an act that would set off a chain of events lead­ing to Tues­day’s mass shooting.

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.

“As he spoke about the shooting and shooting in­di­vid­u­als, he did so in a very cal­lous man­ner,” said Fresno Po­lice Chief Jerry Dyer.

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. Fri­day morn­ing, he watched po­lice of­fi­cers in­ves­ti­gate the crime scene and by evening he was in a ravine, where he told po­lice he con­ducted voodoo rit­u­als for three days.
