On Monday, someone broke into the shooter's condo.  Police said a reporter at the scene alerted them that the patio door was open.

Chief Diane Hobley-Burney went to the condo with patrol officers and discovered the door open, possibly by force, creating suspicion of a burglary.

"We're treating this incident as a burglary just like we would with any other burglary," Sgt. David Cuti said. "Crime scene came out and our criminal investigations bureau is investigating all the leads."

The FBI secured the condo and a car belonging to the shooter when they left at 5:30 a.m. Tuesday.

WPTV did not go inside the condo but, several news outlets did. They said it was apparent that a child lived there. There were toys and a Star Wars bath curtain.

People with tips are asked to call the Fort Pierce Police Department.
