UPDATE: Gunman did not surrender weapons after court order

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (WKOW)--  A Wisconsin court granted a restraining order last week against Radcliffe Haughton and the judge ordered him to surrender his weapons.  Now, two days after Haughton shot and killed his wife, two other women and himself, Milwaukee County authorities say he never turned over his weapons.

Fran McLaughlin, the Sheriff's Department spokeswoman, says detectives typically wait until targets of a restraining order call to comply with any firearms ban.  She states detectives then arrange to secure the arms until the court order is lifted.

Even if Haughton had turned in his weapons Thursday, it wouldn't have mattered.  Federal agents say he bought the handgun used in the crime from a private owner Saturday.  

Investigators who searched Haughton's home afterward found no other weapons.

BROOKFIELD (WKOW)-- Police are now saying Radcliffe Haughton, the man who opened fire in a Brookfield spa, bought the weapon used in the shooting two days after a court ordered him to turn over all firearms.

Sunday morning, 45-year-old Haughton went to Azana Salon and Spa and opened fire.  Killed were his wife, 42-year-old Zina Haughton, of Brown Deer; 35-year-old Cary Robuck, of Racine; and 38-year-old Maelyn Lind, of Oconomowoc.  Haughton injured four other women before turning the gun on himself.

Haugton's wife worked as a hair stylist at the salon.

BROOKFIELD (WKOW) -- Officials have released the names of the victims who were killed in Sunday's mass shooting in Brookfield, including the gunman's wife.

The Waukesha County Medical Examiner's Office identifies the victims as 42-year-old Zina Haughton, of Brown Deer; 35-year-old Cary Robuck, of Racine; and 38-year-old Maelyn Lind, of Oconomowoc.

Authorities say they began performing autopsies on Sunday to determine the cause of death.

Police say the suspect, 45-year-old Radcliffe Haughton, was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

No other information is being released at this time.

BROOKFIELD (WKOW) -- An ATF agent says the agency is tracing one weapon used in the mass shooting at the day spa in Brookfield.

Agent Tom Ahern of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives tells the Associated Press the gun is a .40-caliber semiautomatic handgun. He says additional information will come from Brookfield police after a trace is completed on the gun.

The suspect, Radcliffe Haughton, 45, was ordered to turn over all of his guns after a judge issued a restraining order against him for his estranged wife.

Haughton's wife worked at the Azana Day Spa, but police haven't said if she is one of the shooting victims.

BROOKFIELD (WKOW)-- A Froedtert Hospital spokeswoman says one of the four women injured in a mass shooting at a salon and spa in Brookfield is in critical condition.

Kathy Sieja, a spokeswoman for the hospital, says as of Monday morning, the three other women injured in the shooting at Azana Day Space are in satisfactory condition.

Authorities say three other women were killed by Radcliffe Haughton, the estranged husband of a woman who worked as a stylist at the spa. Authorities have not identified the victims, and haven't said yet whether the gunman's wife is among them. Haughton was later found dead inside the spa.

Brookfield police say Haughton had damaged his wife's car on October 4, and she was granted a four-year protection order on Thursday. Haughton was also ordered not to possess any firearms.
