SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- It’s been nearly one year since the deadly University City poolside shooting. 

Kion Gould was hosting his 48th birthday party at his apartment complex. Right before the shooting began, Gould said he saw a man lying on a lounge chair by himself, so he invited him to join the festivities.

That’s when the man, later identified as Peter Selis, pulled out his gun.

The only thing Gould could do is raise his arm. His bone was miraculously able to stop the bullet.

“I didn’t think it was a real threat until he basically raised the gun toward my head, that was the moment I realized I should have done something right before that, that’s the biggest thing that bothers me and bothers me to this day," said Gould.

Police eventually shot and killed Selis after a shootout. In total, seven people were shot, including Monique Clark who died.

Kion, who still lives in the La Jolla Crossroads Apartments, went back to the area where the shooting took place during an interview with 10News.
