Vigil brings out shooting victim's friends


WAUKESHA (WKOW) -- Students and staff at Carroll University hold a vigil after the mass shooting in Brookfield that police say came out of a domestic violence case.

The vigil was put on by members of the women's center on campus that helps victims of domestic violence. Many of the people who attended were friends of Zina Haughton, killed by her husband Radcliffe during the shooting Sunday at Azana Day Spa. Radcliffe Haughton killed two other women and shot four others before police say he killed himself.

Zina's friends said they felt they owed a tribute of respect to her and her two daughters. They say Zina was struggling to get out of her volatile marriage and friends tried to help her but it was a complicated situation. Zina's friend Sonia Dolphin says, "She would be the one preaching to me about it, and teaching me what to do for myself, and I know she loved herself and I know it'll be hard to replace that."

Zina's friends say they hope domestic violence shelters in Wisconsin get recognized for the work they do and continue to get funding to help more people in need.
