The hearing was postponed to June first because doctors haven't completed his psychiatric evaluation.

Shooting Spree suspect Kori Muhammad appeared in court with a new attorney on Friday. During the hearing, Muhammad was very vocal -- shouting and rolling his eyes.

Muhammad was also provided a new attorney because there was a conflict of interest with the previous one.

"The lawyers at the public defenders office had a conflict of interest, they weren't able to represent him. The second level of conflict which is two known associates had a similar conflict, they were unable to represent him and then they called me," said Richard Beshwate, Muhammad's attorney.


Muhammad is accused of killing 58-year-old David Jackson, 37-year-old Mark Gassett and 34-year-old Zackary Randalls, who was in his PG&E work truck nearby when he was gunned down. He is also accused of killing Motel 6 security guard, Carl Williams, a week prior to the shooting spree incident.

Police are labeling the shootings hate crimes as Muhammad claimed he was out to kill white men.
