Friends and family mark second anniversary of Azana Salon shooting

October 21, 2014 marks two years since a gunman went on a deadly shooting rampage at the Azana Salon and Spa in Brookfield.

Zina Daniel, Cary Roebuck and Maelyn Lind were killed, four others were wounded when Daniel's estranged husband opened fire. He killed himself after swat teams arrived.

Family, friends and survivors mourned the anniversary during a candlelight vigil Tuesday night at the Sheraton Hotel on Moorland Road in Brookfield. Three candles were lit for three lives lost.  

Elvin Daniel, who lost his sister Zina in the shooting, says calling attention to domestic violence is what helps him mourn her loss. \"The only way I can keep her name alive, keep the memory, is doing this in her name,\" Daniel said.

It's been two years, and they say time heals all wounds, but Maelyn Lind's daughter Kaela says she needs more time.  \"I think it's still just as painful,\" Lind said, \"It takes a lot of time.\"

Ongoing support is what experts say will help those affected through this traumatic experience.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.  If you or someone you know needs help with domestic violence, call the 24-hour hotline at (414) 933-2722.
