A man opened fire at a day spa near Milwaukee on Sunday, killing three people and wounding four others before turning the gun on himself, police said.

Brookfield Police Chief Dan Tushaus said officers found the body of Radcliffe Franklin Haughton, 45, of Brown Deer, Wis., inside the Azana Day Spa, dead of a self-inflicted gunshot.

Police said earlier they were searching for Haughton after believing he had fled. A nearby mall, country club and other buildings were locked down during a six-hour manhunt.

Police said they believe the shooting was related to a domestic dispute. Tushaus said the man’s wife was an employee of the spa, that he had slashed tires on her car two weeks ago, and that a restraining order had been issued for him for four years. It was not immediately known whether Haughton’s wife was among the victims.
