Brookfield, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Three people have been killed and four wounded in a shooting at a spa outside of Milwaukee.

Police found the suspect, 45-year-old Radcliffe Franklin Haughton, of Brown Deer, dead at the scene.

Brookfield Police Chief Dan Tushaus says the shooting happened about 11 a.m. at the Azana Day Spa in Brookfield.

Authorities found an explosive device at the spa and a bomb squad is investigating.

A spokeswoman for a local hospital says it received four patients from the shooting, none in critical condition.

President Obama instructed the FBI to ensure that state and local officials have the full support of the Federal government.

Governor Scott Walker released the following statement about the shooting:

"As we wait for further details from the shooting today in Brookfield, Tonette and I send our thoughts and prayers to the victims. Senseless acts of violence leave us with heavy hearts and many questions. Our state will stand with the victims and their families, and we will provide them with the law enforcement and community support they need to heal in the coming days."

The Brookfield shooting happened less than three months after another mass shooting at a Sikh Temple in Oak Creek.

The towns are less than thirty miles apart.
