Suspect in Fresno killings shouts out in first court hearing

The suspect in this week's racially motivated shooting rampage in Fresno entered a courtroom early Friday shouting that natural disasters striking America will increase.

 

Kori Ali Muhammad, 39, then shouted twice during a minute-long hearing: "Let black people go in reparations." He was charged Thursday with killing unarmed security guard Carl Williams at a Motel 6 a week earlier.

 

Authorities say Williams was the first of four killings by Muhammad. Police say he told them that learning he was wanted for the Williams killing spurred him to try to kill as many white people as possible before he was caught.
