BROOKFIELD---What was expected to be a quiet Sunday, turned deadly when gunman Radcliffe Haughton opened fire at Azana Salon & Spa in Brookfield.

It began at 11:09 a.m. when Haughton entered the salon looking for his estranged wife, Zina Haughton.

According to Brookfield Police, Haughton started a small fire in a hallway before he went on a shooting rampage that killed three women in the salon.

Four women, ages 22, 30, 32 and 40 were transported to Froedtert Hospital around noon.

One of the women is in surgery and is in critical condition. Another has undergone surgery and is in satisfactory condition. A third woman is being stabilized and will undergo surgery. The fourth woman suffered non life-threatening injuries and did not require surgery.

All four of the women are expected to survive.

Froedtert Hospital was in lockdown from 1:00 p.m. until 4:25 p.m. as a precaution while police searched for the suspect.

Police located and set up a perimeter around the suspects home in Brown Deer.

Meanwhile, at the salon FBI, AFI, Bomb Squads and SWAT teams prepared to enter the salon.

Due to the smoke in the hallway caused by the fire the suspect started, it took the teams time to prepare before entering the building.

When police and tactical teams were able to get inside the salon, they found the three female victims and were able to determine the shooter had died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Police are saying Zina Haughton requested a restraining order against Radcliffe Haughton on Oct. 8 at 3:00 p.m. The order was served to Haughton just before 7:00 p.m. that same day. The restraining order did specify that he was not permitted to have fire arms.

Police could not confirm whether or not Zina Haughton was among the three victims. Police are not releasing the names of the deceased at this time.

President Obama reached out to the Brookfield Mayor Steven Ponto as well as Governor Scott Walker to ensure the city of Brookfield is receiving all the federal assistance they need.

The Oak Creek Sikh Temple is hosting a vigil this evening for the victims of the shooting.

CBS 58 will bring live reports and updates on this situation on tonight's 10 at 10.
