Tributes continue to flow on social media for the men who died in an apparent murder-suicide in Devonport on Saturday morning, while details of their complicated relationship with the woman who was wounded have also been laid bare.
The victim, Christopher Walters, is being remembered as a "kind, funny, caring guy" and "a great man, a great friend, a great soul" by those close to him.
Friends of Paul Carey, 35, meanwhile, have expressed their shock at his actions and are mourning him as "a gentle soul" and a "bloody good mate".
Both men are understood to have had relationships with the woman, who remains in the Launceston General Hospital.
A fortnight ago, Mr Walters became a father to a little girl, and it is believed the woman is the mother.
That child was staying with Mr Walters' mother when the events of Saturday morning unfolded.
On one of Mr Carey's Facebook profiles, photos shared by the woman suggest they were in a relationship as recently as August, though they have been deleted from her profile.
Early last week, Mr Carey posted on another profile that he was engaged, but also commented a day earlier that "she (presumably the woman) isn't talking to me".
About the same time he made a number of comments on older posts on the woman's profile, including one from early August when she wrote "I got a home now for me and my babies yay". He replied: "was a happy home".
It is understood this is the home where the shooting occurred and police said the woman is reluctant to return to the property.
"After speaking with the lady this morning, she certainly has reservations about that and I can completely understand that," Detective Inspector Kim Steven said.
"We are going to be working through that with her and the relevant authorities to hopefully facilitate that not happening."
