A lot of people are left grieving – family, friends and loved ones of the two women killed. Community Task Force MKE tries to help in situations like this. 

"A lot of emotions. A lot of emotions," said Shequila Morrison with Community Task Force MKE.

"Some people don't know how to handle that. They see other people going through it, but when they got them shoes on, they really don't know how to handle it and process it," Morrison said. "Giving the family water, console them – help them with panic attacks. Help them with breakdowns. They can't understand why their friend's gone – which is a natural response."

Officers and detectives went door to door, going in and out of a yellow duplex. Tape crisscrossed the street with yellow markers placed on the ground. Others looked on in disbelief.
