MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee police are still searching for the suspect who pulled the trigger in a shooting Tuesday night.
The victim was leaving a trivia night at a Riverwest bar when he was randomly shot. As he recovers, the neighborhood is trying to understand what happened.
Sarah Busch and her boyfriend Matt Schweitzer are taking extra precautions.
"I don't even walk home from the bus stop by myself anymore," Busch said.
"I didn't want her walking around out so late," Schweitzer said,
Busch and her boyfriend live just a block away from where a man was shot Tuesday night. It was around 7:45 p.m. when Seth Schuster was standing outside the High Dive bar. He had been there for trivia night. Police said someone drove up, shot him and then took off. 
"It just seems completely random and just not something you can expect to happen ever," said bartender Andrew Smith.
"This is a great neighborhood, it's real diverse and it's got lots of good stuff going on," said Riverwest resident Mike Fredrickson.
Police said the suspect did not know Schuster. His friends said Schuster did not have enemies, instead, it was the opposite.
"He's definitely an important member of the local community and our lives so it's tragic what happened," Smith said.
Schuster volunteered at the local food co-ops and a book cooperative. Now those same places he's helped are trying to give back taking donations for his recovery. 
"We really care about each other here and have a tight-knit community, and especially among people who are owners and operators of small businesses in our neighborhood," said Erika Wolf, with Riverwest Co-Op. "So that's just an extension of who we are and showing our love for our friend." 
Schuster had to have surgery but is expected to recover. He also has a donation page set up for his medical bills.
Police said if you know anything about this incident, you are urged to call them.
