Vigil Marks Anniversary of Wis. Spa Shooting

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- More than 100 people gathered in the Milwaukee City Hall rotunda to mark one year since a fatal spa shooting.

Those attending the candlelight vigil Monday night remembered the lives lost and called for increased efforts to address domestic violence.

Radcliffe Haughton shot and killed his estranged wife, Zina, and two others at Azana Salon & Spa in Brookfield on Oct. 21, 2012, before fatally shooting himself. Four others were wounded.

The event was the second gathering to mark the shooting.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports earlier, volunteers from Milwaukee Organizing for Action, the Wisconsin Anti-Violence Effort and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America called on Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson to support legislation that would expand criminal background checks on gun sales.
