MILWAUKEE — A home believed to belong to the suspected Molson Coors shooter, on the northwest side of Milwaukee, was still surrounded in crime scene tape Thursday morning.

Neighbors say investigators arrived to the 8000 block of Potomac Avenue before 3 p.m. on Feb 26, and haven't left.

State Representative Lakeshia Myers tweeted on Wednesday that the police presence in the area is related to the shooting that happened at Molson Coors.

"I feel bad for the family," said Elizabeth LaPine. She lives across the street from the home being investigated.

She told TMJ4 News that federal agents came to her home as many as six times to question her about her neighbor.

"They were here until after 11," said LaPine. "It's just unreal. You know? You're just in disbelief. You wouldn't think somebody could do something like that."

LaPine and other neighbors, who did not wish to be identified, said police would not tell them why they were being questioned. But, after hearing news of the mass shooting at Molson Coors they quickly realized there was a connection between that tragic crime and the crime scene on their block.

"One of the policemen came and he had a picture and he asked me to identify the picture and then I knew who it was," said LaPine.

Several neighbors also told TMJ4 News that the man, who is believed to be the shooter, was a friendly, family man. He lived at the home with his wife and young daughter.

"He would walk the dog. He would work on his cars," said LaPine.

Now, they're left wondering what could have led the quiet man they knew to kill five co-workers before allegedly turning the gun on himself.

"No inkling. No strange actions or anything, you know, that I ever saw," said LaPine.

Forensic crews returned to the home on Thursday morning. Police have not given updates regarding the investigation at the home and have not identified the shooter, pending family notifications.
