Gunman in San Diego apartment complex shooting was a car mechanic who had filed for bankruptcy – Los Angeles Times

The man who opened fire on a pool party at a luxury San Diego apartment complex Sunday evening, leaving one person dead and several others wounded before he was fatally shot by police, was a local car mechanic who appeared to be struggling with crushing debt, according to police and court records.

Peter Selis, 49, began shooting into a crowd of at least 30 people who were attending a pool party at the La Jolla Crossroads Apartments on Judicial Drive around 6 p.m., San Diego Police Chief Shelly Zimmerman said Sunday night.

Several witnesses told local media outlets that Selis, a white man, began shooting into a crowd largely comprised of African American men and women. Police had not described a motive in the shooting as of Monday morning.

A police helicopter reached the area first and, from above, authorities could see a shooter near the pool who appeared to be reloading his weapon, Zimmerman said.
