BROWN DEER (WKOW)-- The Brown Deer Police Department is under an independent review, after reports show a long history of police calls to Radcliffe Haughton's home, including a stand-off that ended without an arrest.
Police say there was a history of violence between Radcliffe and his estranged wife, Zina. One such incident, occurred in January 2011. Officer Joseph Hahn responded to a call at the Haughton household. He said there was clothing and furniture spread throughout the lawn. He talked with Zina, who told him not to go inside the home. Officer Hahn went to the door and knocked, but Haughton would not open the door for him. Haughton remained inside, and continued to ignore the officer, despite multiple pleas. The officers then spotted Haughton at the window, with what appeared to be a firearm.
Police say 45-year-old Radcliffe Haughton opened fire on the Azana Salon and Spa on October 21. He killed three women, including his estranged wife, Zina, and two others. He then turned the gun on himself.
