    There is a video of a witness interview at the above link

    A witness said he saw three people had been shot on a sidewalk at the apartment complex. He ran into the clubhouse and looked out the windows. He saw two other bloody people and one of them was crawling to the other trying to help.

    "We looked at the pool area where the shooter was sitting there with a beer in one hand and a gun in the other," a witness told FOX 5. "The suspect looked pretty relaxed, pretty relaxed."

    The witness said he saw police officers approach the pool area. He said the gunman started shooting at the officers, but they shot back at him.

    "Three officers moved in and took out the suspect," the witness said.

    Hate crime?

    Police rushed to the apartment building in the University City area and fatally shot the man after he pointed his gun at officers, San Diego Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman said.

    Authorities received several calls just after 6 p.m. about the shooting at the La Jolla Crossroads apartments, an upscale complex in the 9000 block of Judicial Drive.

    The reports were grim: a white man wearing brown shorts was armed with a gun and shooting at what two witnesses described as approximately 30 people around the pool, most of them African American.

    Three police officers arrived and went to the pool area. There, the gunman pointed what was described as a large caliber handgun at police, and all three officers opened fire. The gunman, identified as Peter Selis, 49,was pronounced dead at the scene.

    ....the gunman pointed.....a large caliber handgun at police and all three police officers opened fire.
    He must have known that was going to happen.
    People are going mad - - and innocent victims are paying a terrible price.

    BBM That's what I was thinking, Meryl. And so often in cases like this. Makes me wonder why they don't just kill themselves in the first place and not harm anyone else. Is it that they don't have the nerve to take their own lives so they want to lure someone else to do the deed for them? I feel terrible hearing about someone who commits suicide, but I hate cases like this. It's so, so selfish.

    No children were among the victims. Other than having to experience the terror and view the carnage.
    Seven people, all adults, were hit by gunfire: four black women, two black men and a Latino man. A woman later died at the hospital. Her name was not released. A man broke his arm while fleeing the shooting, Zimmerman said.

    It was unclear what motivated the shooting and police were still interviewing witnesses, including the responding officers. Zimmerman said the gunman and at least one of the partygoers lived at the apartment complex.

    David Phillips told the San Diego Union-Tribune that the shooting erupted at his best friend’s birthday party and as he was returning from the bathroom. “He said he immediately got on the ground. His best friend was among those shot,” the newspaper reported, quoting Phillips as saying, “It was like the Twilight Zone. I really can’t explain what happened.”

    Shahrayar Jeff told the newspaper that his “8-year-old granddaughter told him the man was sitting and drinking a beer and ‘relaxing and shooting,'” and Jeff labeled the mass shooting “very cold blooded” to the Union Tribune.

    Nice. Shot the man in the stomach when he was invited to join the party
