San Diego Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman held multiple press conferences to share known details on the mass shooting.

The San Diego Police Department received multiple calls just after 6 p.m. Sunday of an active shooter in the 9000 block of Judicial Drive. He was described as a white male who was armed. The shooting was determined to be at the La Jolla Crossroads apartments.

The shooter has been identified by police as Peter Selis born in 1967. He reportedly lived at the apartment complex where the shooting took place. His body was removed from the complex Monday just before 5:30 a.m.

Police said the shooting took place during a party in the pool area of the complex where a large group of people were gathered.

SDPD's helicopter arrived on the scene and found that the shooter was still in the pool area and appeared to be reloading.

Selis was drinking a beer during the gunfire according to a witness who spoke to CBS News 8.

When police officers arrived on scene they were directed to the pool area where they located the suspect who then pointed and fired his weapon at the officers, according to Police Chief Zimmerman.

Three officers opened fire on the suspect, he went down and was confirmed to be dead.

In a press conference Monday, Chief Zimmerman said that Selis had ended a relationship with his girlfriend a few days before the shooting. Family members said he was "depressed and distraught" over the breakup, but said they had no idea he would resort to violence.

Zimmerman also confirmed that Selis called his ex-girlfriend during the shooting telling her that he had shot two victims and he kept her on the phone while he continued gunning people down. 

The police chief also said there is no indication that the shooting was racially motivated and that they believe the victims were chosen at random.

Police do not believe Selis personally knew any of the victims or that he planned the shooting.

Chief Zimmerman stated that the gun used was a large caliber handgun; the number of rounds shot by Selis and officers is unknown.

Eight victims were transported to area hospitals Sunday with various injuries.

The victims were originally identified as four African American females with gunshot wounds, two African American males with gunshot wounds, one Hispanic male with gunshot wounds and one African American male with a broken arm sustained while fleeing the area. On Monday, San Diego Police clarified that one of the surviving female gunshot victims was Caucasian. They also added that Selis fired at - but missed - a female security guard at the complex. 

At least one victim also lived at the apartment complex and one of the men shot - Kion Gould nicknamed "Ki" - was celebrating his 50th birthday.

According to Demetrius Griffin, a friend of Gould, Selis was sitting on a lounge chair alone and at one point Gould invited Selis to join the party which included 30-40 people including children.

Griffin said Monday that Gould had undergone two surgeries. 

Tomas Diaz reportedly had a kidney injury with complications from internal bleeding. 

Two of the victims were listed in critical condition as of Monday afternoon, but according to Chief Zimmerman the seven people surviving people injured in the shooting are all stable and expected to survive.
