The shooting spree began around 10:45 a.m. local time, when one person was shot in a PG&E utility truck, a second person was shot on Fulton Street and a third person was shot in the parking lot of Catholic Charities, FOX 26 News reported.

The imam of the Islamic Cultural Center of Fresno told the Associated Press that Muhammad is not a member of his organization and that people at the cultural center are shocked by the shooting. After that, he encountered another man, who he shot and killed, Dyer said.

He also shouted "Allahu Akbar" as police tackled him to the ground, according to Dyer.

Muhammad has a lengthy criminal history that includes weapons violations, drug offenses and making terrorist threats, Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said during a news conference Tuesday afternoon.

"What we know is that this was a random act of violence", Dyer said, adding that it's too soon to determine whether the shootings were acts of terrorism. At least two of his victims were white.

Muhammad is believed to have carried out a fatal shooting last week at a Fresno Motel 6, as it was caught by surveillance video.

Fresno is an agricultural hub in California's central valley, about 275 kilometres southeast of San Francisco.

Two of those shot at were near Catholic Charities and were clients of the social services agency, Dyer said.

Dyer told reporters that the three people were shot minutes apart in close proximity in areas around the downtown area of Fresno.

Sayed Ali Ghazvini said Tuesday that he and other faith leaders are trying to identify Kori Ali Muhammad.

Fresno city spokesman Mark Standriff said county offices were on lockdown, and people were urged to shelter in place, the AP said.
