Can't get handle off

Hey folks,

So exterior handle outside just decided to not to control the look any more so I went about the business of taking off the whole lock. I had to drill out two screws because they were stripped and then what looks like what is holding everything in place now is the interior handle, which I can't seem to figure out how to get off. Any hints? Also, are the bolts that I had to drill out, fairly easy to obtain at home depot?

Check for a set screw on the interior handle shaft. Also Vulkem or other sticky gasket material may be holding the lock body in place.

I think the set screw must have broke off because there is no head to it to unscrew...and yet the handle it is still hanging on. I'm thinking about drilling it out...but if you have any other suggestions, let me know.
