Shooter's ex-girlfriend heard 2 gunshots in call


San Diego Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman said there is "zero information to indicate that race played a factor in this awful and horrific crime", during a press briefing on Monday morning. CNN reported that Selis as seated sat in a poolside lounge chair, he called his ex-girlfriend to tell her he shot two people.

When Selis called his ex-girlfriend he told her he had shot two people and that the police were arriving.

The gunman has been identified as 49-year-old Peter Selis.

Police said that six of the victims are black and one is Latino.

"Thank you to the San Diego Police Department for braving gunfire to prevent additional casualties and also to the dedicated emergency responders and medical personnel who worked diligently throughout the night to care for the wounded".

San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer called the mass shooting a "horrific act" and added, "We stand united as a city to reject this senseless violence".

One victim, 34-year-old Thomas Blea, said he was grateful to a security guard at the complex who hustled him and two other victims quickly to safety.

Instead, he pulled a gun from his waistband, shot the party host twice in the torso and then opened fire on the party, Griffin said.

The police immediately appeared at the crime scene and when they confronted the suspect, he pointed his gun at the officers.

She added: "It is apparent that Selis wanted his girlfriend to listen in as he carried out his rampage".

Chief Shelley Zimmerman said investigators don't yet know why Selis, who was white, started shooting. Griffin said "Ki" has undergone two surgeries. As soon as that happened, the police officers opened fire at him and he was killed at the scene.

Several victims underwent surgery, and some were in critical condition late Sunday, she said.

Police said they believe the gunman and at least one of the partygoers lived at the apartment complex. Chief Zimmerman states that a motive for the shootings is unknown and the investigation is ongoing.

The shooting happened shortly after 6pm on Sunday (local time) after Selis, a auto mechanic, walked to the pool an initially sat in a lounger.

Officers responded to reports of a shooting about 18:00 local time at the La Jolla Crossroads apartments. "Our entire city, all of our thoughts and prayers, all San Diegans' thoughts and prayers, are with the victims and their families tonight".
