Shooting erupted during a birthday pool party at an apartment complex in San Diego. The shooting left 1 dead and 7 wounded, some in serious condition. Police shot and killed the shooter. No motive has been given for the shooting but the shooter was white and all buy one victim was black and the other victim was Hispanic. The shooter was at the pool, drinking beer when he produced his gun and began shooting.
A beer-guzzling gunman fired off at least 30 gunshots at a San Diego pool party on Sunday night, killing at least one reveler and wounding seven more, witnesses and cops said.
Some of the victims were critically wounded, including a woman who died hours after the 6 p.m. attack, San Diego Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman said at a media briefing.
Three officers at the University City apartment complex opened fire on the suspect after a helicopter hovering over the pool spied the shooter appearing to reload the weapon.
Zimmerman said the gunman pointed the weapon at the officers.
While preliminary reports indicate that the shootings may have been racial and alcohol may have played a part, California’s anti-gun Democrats are sure to use this tragic incident to push for more gun control. No one has yet said what transpired before the shooting other than the shooter was drinking beer. There may have been a history between the shooter and some of the victims, but we may never know.
