Police in Brookfield say they're narrowing down the motive for a shooting during a church service on Saturday that left eight people dead including the gunman.

Police say Terry Ratzmann was a member of the Living Church of God.
Friends say he was a quiet sort of person. Police say there were no clues at his work place as to why he would kill seven people at a church service.

But they say there may be a clue in the fact that he walked out of a service before it was finished last month.

Three people are still hospitalized after Saturday's shooting. Doctors say they are all expected to recover, even though one remains in critical condition.

Audio tapes released Monday reflect the shock and horror of those who witnessed Saturday's shootings

In one call, a woman is telling the dispatcher there are five to
ten people shot when she suddenly says -- quote -- "Just a minute.
Oh my. Oh no, oh no, oh no."
