Azana Salon reopening Saturday after deadly shooting


BROOKFIELD (WKOW) -- The salon in Brookfield where three women were killed last month will reopen Saturday.

Tami Gemmell, the owner of Azana Salon and Spa, says reopening in the same space and under the same name is part of the recovery process.

Authorities say Radcliffe Haughton shot and killed his estranged wife, Zina Haughton, and two other women at the salon.

Gemmell says the tragedy has created a band of sisters among the workers there.

"There is beauty that will come out of these ashes, that's what we do. I'm not angry at all."

Out of 65 employees, Gemmel says only four decided to quit.

She says every worker was paid while the salon was closed, part from insurance and part from her own pocket.
