Residents return to evacuated neighborhood

Federal agents raided home in Cudahy following shooting

Residents of a suburban Milwaukee neighborhood evacuated as federal authorities searched a duplex have been allowed to return to their homes.

The suburb of Cudahy is about 6 miles from the Sikh temple in Oak Creek where police say six people were shot and killed by a gunman who was fatally shot by an officer Sunday.

Federal agents and local authorities converged on the Cudahy neighborhood and focused on the duplex.  Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agent Tom Ahern said a warrant was being served at the home of the gunman, but he did not specifically identify the duplex.

A Cudahy police dispatcher, who did not want to be identified, said residents began returning to their homes around midnight.
