Police said that the suspect had appeared to be reloading his gun when officers arrived at the scene.

CBS8 reported that a witness claimed the shooter was sitting down and drinking a beer at the apartment’s pool area before firing the weapon. Witnesses observed Selis holding beer in one hand and a weapon in the other as he began his shooting spree. 

A report via nbc7 told of a witness who was at the pool saying the suspect walked into the pool area where friends were celebrating one of the tenants’ 50th birthday party.

The witness said the tenant who was celebrating his birthday walked up to the shooter, who seemed to be acting strangely. When he invited the suspect to join the celebration, the suspect lifted up his shirt, took out the gun and shot him in the stomach. He continued shooting people until he was out of bullets, according to the witness.

Told another witness, ‘Then we saw literally the people jumping out from the pool… and running like crazy’.

Another witness described Selis as remaining calm with a smirk on his face during the shooting.

The shooter’s motive has not been determined as authorities continue to investigate.
