Mass shooting

A gunman opened fire at a pool party at a San Diego apartment complex on Sunday, killing 1 woman and injuring 6 others before police shot and killed him.

Peter Selis, 49, apparently targeted black people at the La Jolla Crossroads apartments swimming pool around 6 p.m.

Police are characterizing the mass shooting as a possible hate crime. Selis is white and at least 6 of the victims are black.

Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman said eight people in total were shot, including the gunman.

Some of the injured are listed in critical condition at a local hospital. One man fractured his arm trying to escape the shooting.

According to Heavy.com, Selis, a car mechanic, held a beer in one hand while spraying the pool area with bullets.

When Selis paused to reload his semiautomatic weapon, he reportedly warned witnesses, “You can either leave or you can stay here and die,” according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Witnesses said the shooter, who seemed calm, targeted only black people at the pool.

Court records obtained by Heavy.com shows Selis had financial problems and was twice divorced with minor children.

CNN interviewed a student, Enzo Zhuang, who said he was in his apartment playing video games when he heard sounds of an argument followed by what he thought were firecrackers going off.

“I thought to myself, who would be lighting fireworks,” Zhuang said, adding,”it was always peaceful here before this happened.”

The apartment complex is located near the University of California San Diego campus.

    As a black gay man this is why I avoid gathering that are race specific or sexual orientation specific.

  • Vegas1989

    If you paying rent where you are staying and the complex have amenities like two swimming pools, gym, game room/ media room you shouldn’t be afraid to use these things enjoying yourself and MINDING your business. I REFUSE TO LIVE IN FEAR!!!!!!!!!!!

  • klwbaby

    I hate people like this. Just because your life didn’t turn out the way u thought it should, u decide to hurt/kill innocent people.

  • mzbestseller

  • around the way

    I was just about to comment on the lack of comments pertaining to white people and then i read this…

  • Nataliegaye

    White entitlement….They believe their lives should be all good and if it’s not then it is someone else fault, usually someone brown. #45 is no different

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Ok so they were more than likely college students.
    It’s sad that people can’t enjoy themselves without having to worry about nutjobs.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    I think one of the victims was identified as being Hispanic. Regardless, this was awful. And its a reminder that we’re really not safe anywhere; I mean, who expects to go to a pool party for fun and excitement only to end up being a victim of nationally covered mass shooting?

    This is why I carry a gun everywhere I go.

    Domestic terrorism is on the rise. Trump winning the White House made hate mainstream

  • Mrs. ??????????

    And Trump wants a Muslim ban….Maybe he should deport the white men since seems to always a white guy that goes on rampage shootings.

    I wish he had lived – this way he could do life in a prison with Bubba and ’em…

  • stanhope

    Bubba would have opened him wide up…unlike what ne did with his wives.

  • stanhope

    Hispanics can be Black…ask a Puerto Rican.

  • SuperScooper1

    THIS!!!! Or mad he wasn’t “invited” to the pool party and hated seeing others having fun.

  • stanhope

    Even when Black people are doing nothing they can be targeted. The main news reported that the party goers even invited this cracker to join in the festivities. Now let it be known, white men are the devil’s spawn. With Trump in, a new wing was added to hell.

  • SuperScooper1

    As my 86 year old grandfather says, “All white men have to do is show up.”

  • SuperScooper1

    Yeah, that comment he/she made makes no sense. Anything to to pretend that white men aren’t held to a different standard. Ignore them.

  • SuperScooper1

    THIS!

  • SuperScooper1

    It was always mainstream, but they don’t have to use veiled language or actions to hide it anymore.

  • Quitedeliteful

    You’re right… I guess stupid is as stupid does….

    It will be unfortunately

    Terrible. Domestic terrorism. R.I.P. to the person who died, hope that the others who were attacked will be OK.

  • We Can Do This

    Better say it. Anyone with a job and two eyes can be a witness to that.

  • Guess Who

    Let me guess..The police took him to Burger King prior to “arresting” him and did this without using cuffs?

  • jazzysmith12

    Who needs Isis when you have the racist, cave, Neanderthal devils running around.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I’d be willing to bet this man is a Trump supporter.

  • V Dubb

    Lololololol okkkk. Yea I know who do….but I get nervous and don’t need them acting like I’m a criminal so Imma follow your rules and get 3 or 4 of them muggs. For the car…two or three in the house and one to keep on me.

  • NY_Chick

    agreed!

  • Being bad is way more fun

    Radicalized American Terrorist !!!

  • ??Tommys_Female_Doppelganger??

    So he shot at a bunch of black children because he couldn’t keep a woman nor a decent job???!?! SMH!! I guess it doesn’t take much these days.. I hope he’s burning in Hell… White people are some sick animals and every time I turn around the black male is just begging for their affection… I swear – if its not white males killing us its black males killing us then kissing the white mans asss for his daughters acceptance.. SMH!!

  • Taylordanes

    WHITE TERRORIST THUG SHOULD BE DEPORTED

  • stacee

    Who doesn’t have financial problems it doesn’t give you the right to shoot innocent people.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    I pray the others recover and RIP to the one who died.

    Lets see how much the news will cover this. Smdh because when they do a crime compared to blacks its barely covered. White people are really the most violent of all.

  • Winnie Sandlar

    I think a lot of elderly White people would disagree with you on who is most violent towards them. However, the article is about this White man who needs ro receive fate as the person who he killed.

  • Winnie Sandlar

    When Black women name their children anything that ends in Quavios or Niqua they should be deported. Or any of those other god awful names they come up with. If they do not know which thug impregnated them or wrongfully accuse a man they need to be deported.

  • Hmmm~?

    Where does it say they were children? According to other sites, everyone at the party was grown.

  • Hmmm~?

    He was shot and killed because he pointed a gun at them. You do realize that people being held in custody still have to be fed right?

  • Taylordanes

    You can exit stage left. A black person can name their child any name they like… You want black children to take on European names like Becky and Thomas? So sorry you have been brainwashed by massa…. A name is exactly that a name and if someone is judged based on their name the person casting judgement is ignorant. Black American culture is just that… America loves the culture which is why it is constantly appropriated… If Asians, Indians, Hispanics can have their cultural names then so can black americans…..

  • Taylordanes

    Also why not state anything about this white thug? Why are you defelcting and blaming innocent black people ?

  • Evillene

    If the cops hadn’t shot him — and I’m sure they had to be prodded to shoot a white man because they never do that — I’ve no doubt they would’ve taken him to In-and-out or Carl Jr.’s for a celebratory meal.

  • Evillene

    Grandpa knew the truth. Everything is aligned for them to step over everyone else regardless of intellect, capability or motivation. If a white man can’t get ahead in this world (in this country) where everything is given to them there is no one to blame.

  • the guest

    Worse. They don’t want to see black people at all. Those whites too poor to insulate themselves in all white environments are doing insane evil like this. By the Asian resident’s statement on the complex this was a diverse and peaceful community. No one else had a problem with the pool gathering. This psychopathic bigot living among blacks and Asians? But he didn’t want too see brown folks around him? What total friggin lunatic.

  • the guest

    The racist killer wasn’t paper bag testing. He just saw hues of skin color.

  • Winnie Sandlar

    Wear weave appropriating, wear a wig appropriating, actually knowing your father appropriating. The names are as ignorant as allowing Black people to reproduce these b a s tard babies,

  • Jussjess25

    Dont waste your breath on the lowlife loser… hes looking for someone to argue with

  • Jussjess25

    You are right! Smh

  • WiserWords2

    Some would say any name that ends in “nie” is god awful, You should just be honest. Your problem has nothing to do with the names.

  • WiserWords2

    Or lost both wives to Black women.

  • jazzysmith12

    Exactly.the asshole cave devil could have moved

  • Yoni7

    Exactly. So I don’t see why this was even needed in the write-up. NOBODY gives a FUKK!

  • ??Tommys_Female_Doppelganger??

    No – it was a teenagers birthday party… Read the full story instead of picking out what fits your agenda…

  • SuperScooper1

    This, especially the last line! My father says the same thing! It’s so darn true!

  • Hmmm~?

    I have no agenda, and even if I did, I wouldn’t be spreading it on a gossip blog comment section. I was just clarifying.

  • Winnie Sandlar

    I do have a problem with the names as well as the trash for all racial groups. As a Black woman I think the names are stupid and if many of these Black queens put as much into the correct upbringing of their children as they do these ridiculous names the Black community would be stronger.
    I want all the people upset that a White man shot this group of Black people to feel the same anger when Jamarquavious beats and rapes a little old White lady. All you hear is he will get more time than a White person for the same crime. So remember have the the same outrage when the races are reversed.

  • Clopretty

    First of all its a whole lot of peters, tom, adam, and andy’s out here rapping little white girls of their own kind! so stop! it aint about nobody name! WTF do a name have to do with the fact that HUMAN BEINGS OF ALL RACE SHADES OF COLOR IS OUT HERE KILLING AND BEING KILLED! Death don’t discriminate when you die naturally! so it shouldn’t be something any color or race should be doing every race got a thug in it and i met a few white people with ridiculous names too so shut up!

  • around the way

    I’m white been with a black women for 14 years and got three biracial daughters but what’s that got to do with your ignorance?

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Your wife’s a bed wench. ?

  • around the way

    What did the white man do to you to have you so bothered?

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy
  • around the way

    So because you’ve read a book on a certain topic you now view all white people as such?
