An official says a man suspected of killing a motel security guard and three people he targeted for being white is being charged with four counts of murder.

Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer says Kori Ali Muhammad will also face at least two additional charges of assault with a deadly weapon.

Muhammad has a long record of criminal charges and a history of mental illness.

He says Muhammad told police he wanted to be known as someone who killed many white people and not just a security guard.

Dyer says the victims include a utility worker and all are white men between the ages of 34 and 58.
