The Latest: Witness say shooter watched party in dark coat
SAN DIEGO – The Latest on a shooting at a San Diego apartment complex (all times local):
A witness says a man who shot six black people and one Latino man at a San Diego apartment pool party had caught the attention of guests because he was sitting in a chair wearing a heavy black coat despite the warm weather.
Demetrius Griffin says he was attending his friend's birthday celebration on Sunday and noticed the man silently watching the gathering for more than a half-hour.
At one point the guest of honor invited the man to join the party. Griffin says the man pulled out a handgun and shot his friend in the torso.
He says the man remained seated as he calmly fired into the crowd of about 40 people, striking six other guests including a woman who later died.
Police fatally shot the suspect, 49-year-old Peter Selis.
Chief Shelley Zimmerman said investigators don't yet know why Selis, who was white, started shooting.
