Azana Salon reopens


BROOKFIELD (WKOW) -- Azana Salon opened Saturday morning for the first time since the October 21 mass shooting at the Brookfield business.

Police say Radcliffe Haughton entered the salon, and shot and killed his estranged wife, Zina, as well as two other employees, before killing himself.

A permanent memorial of three flowers and a candle mark Zina station at the salon.

"I feel as though I was lucky to escape with my life," said Viki Murray, a designer at Azana. "And I wanted this to be a tribute to those who died here."

"My employees and the customers, like I said, they're very happy to be reunited together, said Azana owner, Tami Gemmell. "It's one more step in the healing process. We've come a long way in the last six weeks."

Members of the Greater Brookfield Chamber of Commerce showed up early to offer support and breakfast for the workers.
