Police Continuing Investigation into Deadly Wis. Spa Shooting

Brookfield, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Police are still trying to piece together what happened Sunday morning when a man opened fire in a salon and spa in a normally quiet Milwaukee suburb.

Investigators say 45 year old Radcliffe Haughton walked into the Azana Spa in Brookfield, WI just after 11am Sunday and opened fire.

"It could take days or weeks to figure this all out," says Brookfield Police Chief Dan Tushaus. "It's a very large crime scene, a very confused crime scene."

Three women were killed and four others wounded. When a SWAT team and federal agents moved into the chaotic scene, they found the alleged suspect in a remote area of the spa, dead from an apparent gunshot wound.

Investigators say Haughton's wife worked at the spa and had recently been granted a restraining order against him.

Authorities believe that this incident is domestic violence related.

The grieving community of Brookfield is receiving support from another community who recently experienced their own deadly shooting.

Members of the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, WI came to Brookfield to volunteer with the Salvation Army at the site of the fatal spa shooting.

A member of the temple says they are providing comfort to family members of shooting victims at the Azana Day Spa.

Back in August, six people were killed and four were injured during a fatal shooting inside the Oak Creek Sikh Temple.
