UPDATE: RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Friends of the Racine man shot and killed are remembering him.

Tremayne Brown wasn't the type to get into arguments or confrontations his friends say. They don't know who could possibly have wanted him dead.

"It's hard. Tremayne was a real friend, a real good friend, a genuine friend," said William Bunch.

Racine Police received the phone calls reporting gunshots late Sunday night.

"I just heard a bang and thought it was thunder," said Neighbor Wayne Lanouette.

Then came the call of a crash just a few blocks away. Responders discovered Brown was driving and had been shot. He died at the scene.

"This was a quiet neighborhood. We've lived here 42 years and there's never been nothing," Lanouette said.

Brown's friends will remember him as someone who was always trying to better himself. 

Friends say Brown had his first child on the way.

Racine Police ask anyone with information to come forward.
