Three killed in Wisconsin shooting at Brookfield spa

Three people have been killed, and four others injured, after a man starting shooting at a beauty spa in Brookfield in the US state of Wisconsin.

Police said the suspect, identified as Radcliffe Haughton, 45, was later found dead at the scene with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

A large number of police had arrived at the Azana spa after witnesses said they saw a man with a gun.

Reports say the incident stemmed from a domestic dispute. The shooting began around 11:15 (15:15 GMT).

Several areas near the spa – including a shopping centre, a country club and a hospital – were locked down, as police searched for the suspect.

A quick reaction Swat team and hostage negotiators were sent to the scene – in addition to FBI personnel.

At least 20 fire, ambulance and police vehicles were also deployed, in addition to a medical helicopter on the ground.

Police initially said they had discovered an “improvised explosive device”, but later said that was not the case.

The White House issued a statement saying Barack and Michelle Obama’s thoughts and prayers were with the victims of “this horrible shooting” and their families.
