After receiving multiple 911 calls of a shooting in the pool area at La Jolla Crossroads Apartments, three officers arrived at the scene and engaged the suspect, a white male wearing shorts, who appeared to be reloading, police said. A birthday party was happening at the building’s pool at the time.

The victims were transported to local hospitals, according to officials. One has since died, and several of the others are in critical condition.

The victims were mostly African American, but police have yet to comment on whether the shooting was racially motivated.
