Now, police are saying the killings were completely random and the gunman wanted to kill "as many white people as possible".
Williams worked at Toys "R" Us and was at his second job at a Motel 6 when Muhammad shot him multiple times after an argument, police and his mother said.
"[Martin Luther King Jr.] wanted to hug their hands, and get along with them, and lick their feet and they still killed him", Muhammad said in the video interview.
Muhammad than fired one round at a passing vehicle and began walking toward it.
Gassett had been staying at a rehabilitation facility nearby and frequented the food bank, Wagner said. In 2004, when Muhammad was 26, Fresno Police arrested him with a large amount of crack as well as a semi-automatic handgun and two rifles.
Dyer confirmed that Muhammad yelled "Allahu Akbar" ("God is great" in Arabic) as he was being loaded into a police vehicle Tuesday, but he said the suspect told investigators that he hadn't attended a mosque in at least 25 years and was a practitioner of voodoo who prays to seven gods, primarily Aguna. Chief Jerry Dyer said. Muhammad, who is black, fired 16 rounds in less than two minutes at four places within a block, shooting men who appeared to be going about their day, authorities say.
Muhammad told investigators he is Muslim but prays to seven different gods and has not been to a mosque in 25 years.
During the arrest, Muhammad shouted "Allahu akbar", or "God is great", but Dyer said the shootings had "nothing to do with terrorism in spite of the statement he made" and were based exclusively on race.
"We do not believe ... that this is a terrorist-related crime", Dyer told reporters. There, police said he practiced Voodoo rituals and cut his braids.
Muhammad then went to a store to buy crystals for more voodoo rituals, but the business was closed, so he instead went into a Starbucks, where he connected to Wi-Fi and read online news reports that he was suspected for the Motel 6 shooting.
The police chief says Muhammad hasn't shown any remorse other than saying sorry to Dyer during his arrest. He re-iterated that Muhammad says he was motivated by a hatred of white men and not religion.
The chief said investigators don't believe Muhammad worked with anyone else in the attack, calling him "an individual that is filled with hate, filled with anger".
Police said Muhammad then ran southbound on Fulton with his gun wrapped in some clothes.
Dryer added that one of the shooting victims was driven to police in a truck belonging to Pacific Gas and Electric Company. Dyer showed pictures of Randalls' family photos with his children after identifying him.
He noticed a white man in a utility truck and fired into the truck, killing Zackary Randalls.
It is unclear if McDonald has entered a plea or retained an attorney.
He said Muhammad then took a city bus and ended up at a ravine, which would become his hideaway for the next few days. He urged whoever had found it turn to turn it in to police as soon as possible. The man fled from the scene after taking the gun, the police chief said.
Dyer says Muhammad fired at Williams, intending to kill him, because he felt Williams disrespected him.
Stephen Hughes, 66, said he and his wife rushed home Tuesday after receiving a frantic call from a neighbor to find a body draped in a blanket on the sidewalk leading to his front door.
The three men killed Tuesday had no known connection to each other or to the shooter, who is expected to be arraigned Friday.
Surrounded by candles and balloons, family and community members gathered near downtown Fresno to remember Mark James Gassett, one of three men killed during Tuesday's rampage shooting.
Dyer said that officers witnessed Muhammad yell "Allahu akbar" at the scene of the shooting.
"They're so devastated", Wagner said. Police say Williams was unarmed.
