SAN DIEGO (AP) — The Latest on the victim of a mass shooting last weekend by a lone gunman at a pool party on Sunday in San Diego. (all times local):
San Diego area churches planned to hold public vigils for a 35-year-old mother of three who was the lone person killed by a gunman who shot seven people at a poolside birthday party in San Diego over the weekend.
White flowers and a wreath were left outside the apartment complex’s pool area Tuesday, two days after the mass shooting.
Two vigils were planned for Wednesday for victim Monique Clark. She was the mother of three children.
Entertainer Nick Cannon was one of her childhood friends.
He wrote on his Instagram account: “Tears can’t express the pain and shock.”
Police say the victims were randomly targeted by 49-year-old Peter Selis who was angry over a recent breakup and called his ex-girlfriend during the attack so she could hear him shooting strangers.
Selis was killed by police.
