A pool party on a warm California day turned into a mass shooting horror for guests. The shooting occurred at the upscale La Jolla Crossroads Apartments in San Diego. Partygoers were having a great time and noticed a White man sitting in a chair, drinking a beer and staying apart from the activities. Some of the guests even offered him food and drink, it was reported.

Around 6 p.m. witnesses stated that the man, now identified as Peter Selis, 49, got up from his chair, pulled out a gun and started shooting Black people in the pool. Chaos erupted as the crowd attempted to flee the area, there was a brief pause as Selis, holding a can of beer, reloaded his gun and started shooting again.

Selis shot seven people, all Black. A female victim died from her injuries. According to guests, the host of the party was singled out by Selis, who reloaded throughout the shooting spree, firing at least 30 times. A police helicopter arrived within minutes of a 911 call and observed Selis firing at party guests. When police ground units arrived Selis pointed his weapon at police who then opened fire, killing the gunman.

San Diego Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman said in a press conference Sunday night:

“There were eight victims that were transported and four of the victims were African American females who were suffering from gunshot wounds that were taken to area hospitals, two African American males were taken to an area hospital suffering from gunshot wounds, one Hispanic male suffering from a gunshot wound taken to an area hospital and then one African American male fleeing the area broke his arm when he was fleeing the gunfire.”

It is being reported that Selis was a resident at the complex and was in a dire financial situation. Selis was employed at Mossy Ford in San Diego and the company website lists him as a service technician. Public records show that he was in bankruptcy with a large amount of credit card debt. He has also been separated from his wife and had a large amount of marital debt. Police are trying to determine a motive for the shooting but at this point are not calling the shooting a hate crime.

    Oh, what a surprise another white male terrorist doing what they do best! 2nd white terrorist to have murdered blk people in the last month or so. The white supremacist controlled media will surely play it’s part of course, in downplaying, excusing, demonizing and flat out blaming the victims of the horrific unprovoked attack.

        Absolutely not! She was a troublemaker and she got disciplined for it.

          No, they are a bunch of racists and you witnessed a hate crime and just called them a “trouble maker” they are criminals.

            Not even close. She was being extremely aggressive and there is no telling what she would have done. It was actually extremely smart of them to try and neutralize the threat as quickly and safely as possible.

            So you support the assault of an old lady? My god you’re an idiot. Typical hillary lover.

            No such thing. They were being kids, having fun. Which is why the guy got probation and community service.
