The aftermath of Tuesday's rampage in Fresno that left three men dead.
Muhammad cut off his braids and shaved his face, significantly changing his appearance, after Fresno police put out a news release about that killing.
Muhammad first walked up to a lorry and shot a Pacific Gas & Electric employee sitting in the passenger seat.
"That was going to be his target, and he caught up with him and he fired two rounds into this individual", Dyer said. He fired 16 shots in less than two minutes, police said. "I saw the second and third shots". Following that he encountered another man, who he shot and killed, according to Dyer.
Dyer said the attacks were unprovoked and "solely based on race".
Dyer says it is extremely rare for a suspect to be so forthcoming about potential crimes.
According to police, Muhammad was arrested without incident and stated "I did it".
Authorities are calling the killings a hate crime, saying that Muhammad, who is black, set out to kill as many white people as possible.
Kori Muhammad is a "calloused" racist who laughed while talking to police and his mother after admitting to fatally shooting three white men north of downtown Fresno on Tuesday, police Chief Jerry Dyer said.
When the man learned Tuesday morning that he was the suspect in the motel murder case, Dyer says he made a decision to murder as many white men as he could in a form of racial retribution. He later took a bus to Herndon and Milburn avenues, where he stayed Friday through Sunday in a ravine, "practicing what he decribed as voodoo rituals", Dyer said. Terrorist organization links are also being investigated.
Muhammad was meeting a woman at a Motel 6 Thursday night when he was contacted by security, Dyer said. Muhammad had gone there to meet a woman, and he argued with security who asked him to leave.

Three people got off the flight, but the fourth said he was a doctor and needed to get home to treat patients on Monday. United was trying to get four passengers to leave the plane to make room for a flight crew.
"As he spoke about the shooting and shooting individuals, he did so in a very callous manner", Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said.
Randalls was driven to police in a PG&E truck, Dyer said Tuesday. We know the 34-year-old was on his first day out in the field.
She saw her son a few days before he died and spontaneously told him she loved him and was proud of him.
"He told her not to cry, he is still alive, and his magic was powerful, and he started laughing", Dyer said.
The three victims from the shooting rampage Tuesday were white, and apparently chosen at random, police said.
Muhammad was also wanted in connection with the death of security guard Carl Williams, 25, who was shot outside his job at a Motel 6 in Fresno last Thursday.
As Muhammad fled, he found another white man - 37-year-old Mark Gassett - on a sidewalk.
And, Muhammad was already on the Fresno Police Department's radar, and was a prime suspect in last week's shooting.
Muhammad, who was born Kori Taylor, was taken into custody Tuesday, and is expected to be charged with four murder counts.
The suspect in the shooting deaths of three people in Fresno told his family there was a war going on between blacks and whites in America.
County government buildings were placed on lockdown during the shooting spree and residents were urged to shelter in place. Muhammad is being charged with four counts of murder.
