Three people were killed and four injured in a Sunday morning shooting rampage at a spa near a mall in Brookfield, just miles from the Wisconsin gurdwara where six Sikh worshippers were shot dead in August.
The multiple shooting occurred about 11 am at the Azana Salon & Spa near Brookfield Square Mall, a report said.
Waukesha County authorities confirmed late Sunday afternoon that the suspected shooter, Radcliffe F Haughton (45) of Brown Deer, was found dead inside the spa.
Police said it had still not cleared the entire building by late afternoon and that their investigation of the building was hampered by what they believe to be an improvised explosive device. The Milwaukee bomb squad had been called to the scene.
More than a dozen emergency vehicles were standing by in the mall parking lot and police officers were patrolling the sidewalk on the east side of the mall with automatic weapons, the journal said.
The shooting scene is less than a mile from the Sheraton Hotel where seven people were killed and four wounded whenTerry Michael Ratzmann opened fire at a Living Church of God service on March 12, 2005, it said.
Ratzmann, a 44-year-old computer technician, then committed suicide.
