In what US police are considering a hate crime, a man in Fresno, California randomly shot dead three white men on Tuesday, April 18.

Police authorities say the man, identified as 39-year-old Kori Ali Muhammad, was trying to kill as many white people as he could.

Although he reportedly shouted "Allah Akbar" while being arrested, police said his attacks were motivated solely by racism.
