A man shot and killed three people on the. Williams was a manager at a Toys R' Us who was at his second job when Muhammad shot and killed him at a Motel 6.
Muhammad shot at another white man who had just walked out of a house, but he missed. They include forgery, domestic violence, criminal threats and driving under the influence.
Court records show Muhammad also was arrested in Washington state in 2004 after acknowledging he shot a gun outside his apartment.
The Federal Bureau of Prisons says Muhammad was incarcerated at a federal penitentiary from October 2006 to September 2011 after being convicted of possessing cocaine with intent to distribute.
Mark Greer said he and 58-year-old David Jackson stopped at the Catholic Charities building after running a bank errand because Greer needed to use the restroom.
The two were waiting for the bus when authorities say Kori Ali Muhammad, who is black, targeted the white men at random.
Gassett and Jackson were both clients of Catholic Charities and shot near the charity's Fresno headquarters.
"First, he said he respected Fresno police officers (and) did not want to force them to shoot him", Dyer said.
While hiding in the ravine, Muhammad practiced voodoo rituals, Dyer said.
Dyer says "this is exclusively based on race". He also shot Mark Gassett on a sidewalk, then pumped two more rounds into him as he lay wounded.
Dyer said he doesn't think the suspect's desire to kill stemmed from religious views, but rather racist views. Fresno Police chief Jerry Dyer reviews notes on the triple fatal shooting before addressing the media Tuesday, April 18, 2017, in Fresno, Calif.
Dyer described Muhammad as an extremely callous man.
During the arrest, Muhammad shouted "Allahu Akbar", or "God is great", but the shootings had "nothing to do with terrorism in spite of the statement he made," Dyer said.

Police had put out a news release hours before the shootings Tuesday, saying that Muhammad was armed and risky and wanted over the shooting death of a security guard at a Motel 6 last week.
It wasn't until Tuesday, when Muhammad saw on the local news that he was a suspect in the murder of the guard, that Muhammad chose to kill more.
A black man accused of shooting three people to death in Fresno, California, wanted to kill as many white men as possible because he expected to be arrested for another shooting, police said on Wednesday, calling the incident a hate crime.
He then shot in the direction of a bus stop where he had spotted three white males, police said. From there, Dyer said, he watched police investigate his crime scene.
Muhammad told investigators he is Muslim but prays to seven different gods and has not been to a mosque in 25 years.
Officials say the suspect, Kori Ali Muhammad, might have been racially motivated.
Dyer said Muhammad - born Kori McDonald - also spoke with his mother while in custody and "he told her not to cry, that he's still alive and that his magic is powerful". "That makes it even sadder because Zack was truly a person who never saw color in anybody".
The suspect then fled and hid on a gas station roof. Phyllis Cervantes, right, says a prayer for Tuesday's shooting victims at a memorial of candles and flowers outside Catholic Charities on Wednesday, April 19, 2017 in Fresno, Calif.
Williams, 25, was unarmed and was killed after allegedly getting into an altercation with Muhammad. He told her loved her too.
Muhammad told his family there was a war going on between blacks and whites in America.
