Nick Cannon Pens Devastating Note To Childhood Friend Who Died In San Diego Pool Shooting

'Tears can’t express the pain and shock,' the 36-year-old says.

A spring pool party in San Diego which should have been a fun time was ruined by one man after he decided to open fire on the crowd. His choice resulted in the death of one person. Others were injured before the 49-year-old suspect was shot and killed by the police.

Now, more details have been revealed about the victim, and Nick Cannon actually revealed the woman was a childhood friend of his.

He took to Instagram to write, “My heart hurts with great sadness tonight. I just learned that the one life lost in the senseless and tragic mass shooting in San Diego was my childhood friend, who was more like family, Miss Monique Clark. Such a beautiful spirit with an infectious smile. I have nothing but wonderful memories of this Angel. Tears can’t express the pain and shock. A mother of 3, a sister, a daughter, a cousin, a friend and a Queen…Rest in Paradise.”

The attack took place at a complex around 6 p.m. as people celebrated a birthday party. The suspect, Peter Selis, did this as a random act of violence.

He was on the phone with his ex-girlfriend at the time, and Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman said, “It is apparent that Selis wanted his girlfriend to listen in as he carried out his rampage.”
