8 People SHOT At La Jolla Apartment Complex

VIA: Multiple people were shot at La Jolla apartment complex Sunday afternoon and a witness described the chaotic scene leading up to police arriving.

Eight people were hospitalized after a gunman started shooting at the pool located at the La Jolla Crossroads Apartments on Judicial Drive Sunday at 6:07 p.m., police said.

A witness told FOX 5 he and his fiance heard arguing, then several gunshots at the complex. Then, they saw three people who had been shot on a sidewalk. He ran into the clubhouse and looked out the windows. He saw two other bloody people and one of them was crawling to the other trying to help.

“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 he saw police officers approach the pool area. He said the gunman started shooting at the officers, but they shot back at him.

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

San Diego Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman said their helicopter was the first on scene and saw the gunman at the pool. He appeared to be reloading his gun, she said. He appeared to point his gun in their direction and they shot him dead.

People get fooled by phony pictures on the internet all the time, but what if the person getting fooled, is a high-profile news chief?

Jeff Stein, Newsweek’s national security reporter, shared a picture of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and soon-to-be ousted, White House staffer Sebastian Gorka, holding Nazi books captioned, “No doubt Flynn and Gorka thought this photo was funny when they took it.”

The problem is, as you can see below, the meme is doctored to change the book covers from something innocuous to something much more dubious.
