That's according to a criminal complaint filed against Gabriel.
There were also complaints filed against Gabriel's home. In 2008, someone complained about peeling pain on his garage, and in overflowing garbage in 2010.
The Green Bay Police Department are investigating because an Appleton officer was involved in the shooting.
