The man suspected of opening fire on a Milwaukee-area Sikh temple had “just broken up with his girlfriend,” the mother of the suspect’s landlord told Greendale Patch.

“He’s a renter,” the unnamed woman told Patch. “He’s new actually. He rented a room with my son.”

“He lived with my son for three weeks, then the house across the street became empty, and he moved there,” the woman said, according to Patch.

The woman said her son was being questioned by police. She said she didn’t know much about the shooting suspect, and could not ask her son since he was with the police.

“He was quiet. He worked second shift,” she told Patch about the shooting suspect, adding that she knew the suspect had broken up with his girlfriend because “he mentioned that to my son. Then he wanted to move on his own. So he moved to the duplex across the street.”
