One woman was killed and seven people were wounded, several critically, when a man opened fire Sunday at a San Diego apartment complex swimming pool where a number of adults were attending a birthday party.

The gunman has been identified as Peter Selis, 49, and was reportedly a resident at the upscale La Jolla Crossroads complex on Judicial Drive near the Westfield UTC Shopping Center where the shootings occurred. He shot four black women, two black men and one Latino man Sunday, police said, adding that another man broke his arm while running from the chaos. One of the women later died, Fox News reports.

The killer seemed unfazed during his rampage, witnesses said. Shahrayar Jeff told the San Diego Union-Tribune he learned from his 8-year-old granddaughter that the gunman was sitting and drinking a beer and “relaxing and shooting.”

Partygoer Drew Phillips said shortly before the 6 p.m. shooting, his friend — who was celebrating his birthday — had approached Selis and offered him food and drink. The man declined, and continued to sit quietly yards away.

“Six or seven minutes later it’s just pow, pow, pow, pow — out of nowhere,” Phillips said. “…There was no indication that he was there to do evil.”

Several victims were in surgery and others were still critical, police Chief Shelley Zimmerman said.

Selis had filed for bankruptcy in 2015, the newspaper reported. The filing showed he was a car mechanic and a father. He and at least one of the partygoers apparently lived at the complex, Zimmerman added.

“This is truly a horrific act of violence that took place here today,” San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer said at a news conference. “Our entire city, all of our thoughts and prayers, all San Diegans’ thoughts and prayers, are with the victims and their families tonight.”

Here’s the video report courtesy of Fox News:

Zimmerman said a police helicopter arrived to the scene at around 6:07 p.m. local time and the pilot reported seeing multiple victims on the ground and that Selis was still in the pool area holding a large-caliber handgun and appeared to be reloading.

Three officers on the ground shot the suspect after Selis pointed the gun at them, Zimmerman said.

The investigation is ongoing.

Our hearts and prayers go out to all those involved.


God Bless.
