Actor and rapper Nick Cannon claimed that he knew the victim who died in the mass shooting at a San Diego apartment complex on Sunday.
“My heart hurts with great sadness tonight,” the “America’s Got Talent” host wrote on Instagram. “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.”
Cannon posted an image of Clark and Cannon as children.
According to New York Daily News, Clark was a mother of three. She was gunned down by Peter Selis, who allegedly fired at random into a crowd of people at a birthday party from a poolside lounge chair. Seven people were shot in total before the gunman was killed by police.
