"He's not a terrorist, he is a racist, filled with hate", Dyer said at a news conference.
On one music video titled "U Gone Need Me: "Tru Story Kori" in which he discusses racism and the "liberation of his people", he says: "... on a mission for the liberation of my people. "Zackery was an employee with PG&E was on a ride along with a PG&E field worker as part of his employment", said Dyer.
Police in California say, despite what the suspect said during his arrest, a deadly rampage that resulted in the death of three white men Tuesday morning was motivated by race, not terrorism. The suspect showed no remorse, police said.
He then continued to the area of Catholic Charities where he shot and killed a person in the parking lot, police said.
The suspect then fled and hid on a gas station roof. Muhammad also fired at a group of men at a bus stop and chased after one man, who was the heaviest and oldest of the group. "The last victim is 58-year-old David Martin Jackson".
Muhammad also has a criminal history in Sacramento dating back to 1997 when he was arrested for making criminal threats.
Muhammad, 39, is in custody and is expected to be charged with four counts of murder - for Tuesday's three victims and 25-year-old Motel 6 security guard, Carl Williams, another white man who Muhammad shot last week.
In a Facebook account under Muhammad's name, there were several posts about "white devils" and the cryptic message "my kill rate increases tremendously on the other side". From there, Dyer said, he watched police investigate his crime scene.
Muhammad, who is being held without bail, has not been formally charged with the deaths of Zackary Randalls, Mark Gassett and David Jackson on Tuesday or Carl Williams last week. He also told investigators he is Muslim, but he prays to seven different gods and hasn't been to a mosque in 25 years. Police in Fresno said that Muhammad screamed "Allahu Akbar" before he was taken into custody.

"I did it. I shot them", Dyer said Muhammad told officers. Wright says he expects the arraignment will be scheduled for Friday.
Muhammad has been arrested before and suffers from "auditory hallucinations and had at least two prior mental health hospitalizations", according to court records.
The suspect in Tuesday's shooting spree is not a terrorist, Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said Wednesday.
Police said Muhammad spent the weekend in a ravine, and after learning he was wanted by police, set out to kill Tuesday.
The suspect now faces four counts of murder and two charges of attempted murder. He told her he loved her, too.
Kori Ali Muhammad surrendered himself to police Tuesday after firing multiple rounds at people in what police now consider an anti-white hate crime.
He claimed insanity, and his attorney requested a psychiatric examination for his client, saying Muhammad "appeared eccentric with some weird beliefs".
