Video Shows People Recording La Jolla Crossroads Active Shooter

San Diego, CA – An active shooter incident has been declared a mass casualty incident in San Diego. Cell phone video has surfaced which appears to capture the gunshots, as people took cell phone video rather than call 911 (non-graphic video below.)

Police responded to a report of an active shooter at the pool area of La Jolla Crossroads Apartments in the University City neighborhood on Sunday night around 6 PM.

Reports of the active shooter first came in with multiple victims down. According to CBS 8, 8 victims are reported to have been shot and have been transported to area hospitals. San Diego Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman said that the victims were in critical condition.

One witness reported that the suspect was seated at the pool drinking beer throughout the shooting.

“We looked at the pool area where the shooter was sitting there with a beer in one hand and a gun in the other,” a witness told FOX 5. “The suspect looked pretty relaxed, pretty relaxed.”

The witness said that when officers arrived, the suspect opened fire on them as well, and they returned fire, killing the shooter.

“Three officers moved in and took out the suspect,” the witness said.

Law enforcement has confirmed that the gunman is down, but they are still asking everybody to shelter in place.

    No surprise that the active shooter was a white guy. Eighty percent of active shooters are white guys. He was also a racist, being all of his victims were African American and Hispanic. Cops did kill the scumbag.

      “Eighty percent of active shooters are white guys.”
      Do you care to cite a source for that claim?

      According to “statistica”, blacks are responsible for 14 mass shootings and whites for 48 between 1982 and 2016.
      https://www.statista.com/statistics/476456/mass-shootings-in-the-us-by-shooter-s-race/

      According to the 2015 US census:
      White only – 77.1% of population (247.8 million)
      Black only – 13.7% of population ( 44.0 million)

      White = 48/247.8 = 0.194 mass shooters per million
      Black = 14/ 44.0 = 0.318 mass shooters per million

      A black person is 64% more likely than a white person to go on a mass shooting rampage.

  • 1) not true, other videos of folks recording the scene included people talking about having already called 911.

    2) this is click-bait

    3) this incorrectly portrays the story and is not ethical journalism

    4) clearly, a biased site – clearly, a biased article.

      You just figured out this is a biased site? You just figured out this site engages in click baiting?

      • Whoa, excuse me? No, I did not just figure it out; I felt the need to impulsively comment, just like you’re impulsively commenting by being condescending and rude. If you share the opinion, then you should simply offer your agreement.
