San Diego Man Opens Fire On 7 Black & Hispanics At Pool Party, Cops “Don’t Think Race Played a Factor”? [VIDEO]

This incident has us scratching our heads over how this isn’t considered a hate crime or terrorism at the least? A white male reportedly depressed over a recent breakup calmly shot up a pool party that just happened to be filled with Black and Hispanic kids, killing one and injuring 6 others, but police have somehow already decided that the fact that all of his victims were minorities was just a coincidence….SMH. Check out actual footage of the incident below and let us know what you think….

A gunman despondent over a recent breakup opened fire at a poolside birthday party and phoned his ex-girlfriend as he kept shooting strangers, killing one woman and injuring six other partygoers before he was killed by officers, police said Monday.

Peter Selis, 49, sat on a pool chair during most of the rampage, calmly shooting guests at the party with a .45-caliber handgun. The victims were black and Latino and Selis was white, but police don’t think race played a factor.

“These victims were just in his vicinity when he committed this terrible tragedy,” Chief Shelley Zimmerman said. “What started as a celebration of a friend’s birthday party turned into a tragedy of epic proportions.”

 Witnesses said Selis was wearing a black coat and sitting alone during the party for a man’s 50th birthday Sunday at an apartment complex near the University of California, San Diego.

At one point the guest of honor invited the man to join the party. That’s when Selis drew a handgun and shot the honoree in the torso, said Demetrius Griffin, a friend at the party.

“He didn’t stand up. He sat the whole time. Even when he reloaded his magazine, he sat in his chair,” said Griffin. “It was very eerie, to say the least. He didn’t stand up. He didn’t say anything. He just opened fire.”

After shooting two people, Selis called his ex-girlfriend and said what he’d done and that police were there and then continued firing.

“It is apparent that Selis wanted his ex-girlfriend to listen in as he carried out his rampage,” Zimmerman said.

Selis shot four black women, two black men and one Latino man, police said.

Two victims remained in critical condition, but were expected to survive, Zimmerman said. Another man was taken to the hospital after he broke his arm running away.

Of note, of all the individuals shot, all were non white.

According to ABC 7, ‘The victims were described as four African-American females, two African-American males and one Hispanic male. In addition, one African-American man broke his arm as he was fleeing the chaotic scene.’ – via AP

SMH…We wouldn’t be surprised if his ex-girlfriend was now dating a Black or Hispanic guy and this was his revenge. Regardless of the motive, if a Black or Hispanic man decided to shoot 7 innocent white kids at a pool party this would’ve been labeled as a hate crime committed by a racist Black Panther Muslim terrorist by the media. That’s just us what we think though, what do YOU think about cops refusing to call this incident a hate crime?
