Police said Muhammad has some criminal history of terrorist threats, but they do not know if he is on any terrorist watchlist. However, they said it was "still too early" to say if the shooting was an act of terrorism.

Three people have been shot dead after a gunman went on a rampage in downtown Fresno, California, according to authorities, who have since taken the suspect into custody.

The suspect is Kori Ali Muhammad, 39. He reportedly yelled, "Allahu akbar" during his arrest. Investigators also said he used the alias "Black Jesus."

Police were called to the scene after receiving reports of 16 gunshots in less than a minute.

Muhammad is facing with four counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder.
