Prosecutors say they're holding off on three additional counts in the deaths of three white men Tuesday while investigators piece together their case. - Muhammad told police he then decided he wasn't going to go down for killing a security guard who disrespected him but instead taking out as many white men as he could. Williams was also white.

Muhammad was charged in 2005 with possessing cocaine with intent to distribute, court records show.

"I did it. I shot them", Muhammad told officers as they arrested him, according to the chief.

Police said Muhammad was inspired to carry out the "hate crime" shooting after learning on a local news report that he was the suspect of the Motel 6 murder.

Police have said Muhammad was bent on killing as many white men as possible when he gunned down the three men in downtown Fresno and fired at another, who was missed by the bullets.

Williams, 25, was working as a security guard for Monument on April 13 at Motel 6 when he was shot at close range by the gunman.

Fresno has used the gunfire detection system called ShotSpotter for about two years.

"This is exclusively based on race", Dyer told reporters.

Here is what we know about the victims:Police say the first person gunned down was PG&E utility worker Zackary Randalls, who was sitting in the passenger seat of a work truck. They scattered, and Muhammad picked the one who was older and appeared heavier: David Jackson, 58, of Fresno.
