BROOKFIELD, Wis. (AP) -- A county dispatcher in Wisconsin says the suspect in a mass shooting at a spa outside Milwaukee has been found dead.
Christine Bannister is a dispatch supervisor for Waukesha County communications center. She says 45-year-old Radcliffe Franklin Haughton, of Brown Deer, has been found dead. She could not provide more details.
Police say three people were killed and four wounded in the Sunday morning shooting at the Azana Day Spa. Authorities spent much of Sunday afternoon looking for the gunman.
They say they believe the shooting was related to a domestic dispute.
The spa is a two-story, 9,000-square-foot building across from a major shopping mall in Brookfield, a middle-to-upper class community west of Milwaukee.
The shooting happened about 11 a.m. An improvised explosive device was found at the spa, and a bomb squad was investigating, Brookfield Police Chief Dan Tushaus said.
Spokesmen for the FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said their agencies also had agents participating in the investigation.
The mall, a country club adjacent to the spa, a nearby hospital and other buildings were locked down as police searched for Haughton, local media reported.
Gina Kralik, a bartender at Red Robin Gourmet Burgers in the mall, said by telephone that the restaurant was still locked down as of about 3 p.m. She said 18 people were there -- all employees except for a couple of reporters who managed to get in. She said people were allowed to leave at one point, but then the police decided not to let anyone come or go from the mall.
"We're just sitting watching the news and also trying to find out what's going on," she said.
Online court records showed a temporary restraining order was issued against Haughton in Milwaukee County Circuit Court on Oct. 8 because of a domestic abuse complaint.
Haughton appeared in court Thursday, when a no-contact order was issued and he was told to turn all his weapons over to the sheriff's department.
Beth Strohbusch, a spokeswoman for Froedtert Memorial Hospital -- the hospital that was locked down -- said four shooting victims were taken there, none in critical condition.
It was the second mass shooting in Wisconsin this year. Wade Michael Page, a 40-year-old Army veteran and white supremacist, killed six people and injured three others before fatally shooting himself Aug. 5 at a Sikh temple south of Milwaukee.
The shooting at the mall took place less than a mile from where seven people were killed and four wounded on March 12, 2005, when a gunman opened fire at a Living Church of God service held at a hotel.
