San Diego is becoming the City of Death.
Seven adults were shot, one woman fatally, when a gunman who witnesses said never left his poolside chair opened fire on a birthday party at an University City apartment complex this weekend.
Police showed up and naturally a gunfight ensued. The shooter, Peter Selis, a resident at the upscale La Jolla Crossroads complex on Judicial Drive near the Westfield UTC Shopping Center, was killed.
A 2015 bankruptcy filing stated that Selis, a father and a car mechanic at a Ford dealership in San Diego, faced crushing debt.
Authorities said the shooter, armed with a semi-automatic pistol, was white and all the victims were people of color — four black women, two black men and one Latino man. The woman killed was not identified.
Clueless Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman said investigators have not determined a motive, and were still interviewing witnesses. (She obviously missed the part about Selis’ “crushing debt” and the fact he only gunned down people of color.)
Eight people — the seven shooting victims and the man who broke his arm — were taken to hospitals. Among the shooting victims was the man celebrating his birthday.
