Court documents detail Radcliffe Haughton’s violent past
Fox6Now: The day after 45-year-old Radcliffe Haughton entered the Azana Salon & Spa in Brookfield and opened fire, killing three and injuring four, FOX6 News learned more about the man accused in this shooting. Haughton’s body was discovered inside the salon Sunday evening. He reportedly died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Haughton was the estranged husband of Zina Haughton — one of the hair stylists at the spa, and one of three killed in the shooting. An Azana employee who spoke with FOX6′s media partners at the Brookfield Patch said Radcliffe Haughton was out of work and Zina Haughton was working every day to bring in money to pay the bills. However, Zina Haughton recently decided to leave Radcliffe Haughton, and that’s when the problems started. An Azana employee told the Patch the two have two daughters, ages 12 and 21.
FOX6 News has learned Haughton had a violent past, including a recent standoff with Brown Deer police. Haughton has a record of domestic incidents and disorderly conduct in Wisconsin and Illinois — where he used to live. Court documents show over the last year, violent incidents involving Haughton had increased.
Brookfield police officials said on October 4th, police investigated an incident in which Haughton reportedly slashed the tires of his wife’s vehicle. Four days later, on October 8th, Haughton’s wife sought a temporary restraining order and received it — and Haughton was served with that restraining order.
In the temporary restraining order against Radcliffe Haughton, Zina Haughton writes about the incident during which Radcliffe reportedly slashed her tires, stating: “He threatened to throw acid in my face — burn me and my family with gas. His threats terrorize my every waking moment. He attacked me last week to take my cell phone out of my bra, where I hid it from him. He said he would kill me if I left him or ever contacted the police.”
According to CCAP, Radcliffe Haughton was in court on Thursday, October 18th, when a four-year “no contact” order was filed against him. Haughton was prohibited from owning firearms, and was supposed to turn them over to the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office — according to CCAP records.
Additionally, in January of 2011, a criminal complain indicates Haughton kept Brown Deer police at bay for an hour and a half after he threw his wife’s clothes and bedding into the yard. The criminal complaint states Haughton stood in the window, slid open the curtians and pointed a long-barreled black object out the window. He aimed this object at Zina Haughton, who stood three feet away from officers outside. The criminal complaint says the incident ended when officers left the scene.
The criminal complaint was dismissed after Zina Haughton and a Brown Deer police officer did not show up for a court date, and Radcliffe Haughton was never arrested.
Guess what sign the Azana Salon has posted on their front door?
The Brookfield salon that was the scene of a mass shooting on Sunday does not allow patrons to carry concealed weapons. A sign on the door of the Azana Salon & Spa in Brookfield bans those entering from carrying concealed weapons. That means customers or employees who were following the law would be barred from having weapons.
- @em_ess_: Yep, concealed carry is sure keeping everyone in Wisconsin safe! Thanks, @GovWalker!
- @_FollowABOSSSS: I blame Scott Walker for these shootings, the f*ck you legalize people having guns anyways?
- @Kelli_jo_: @GovWalker instead of praying for victims you could actually do something to prevent incidents like this from happening again #brookfield
- @Baconmints: Go suck more NRA d*ck, you fraud. #wiunion #p2/RT @GovWalker: Monitoring the situation in Brookfield and praying for all involved.
- @Meiersaur: @GovWalker these gun laws are sure making WI safer. He Haw!
Too bad Radcliffe wasn’t following the law. Too bad Zina didn’t feel terrorized enough to carry a firearm for her own protection. Too bad weapons weren’t allowed in the Salon – except for those who don’t obey the laws.
Gun control doesn’t work when you have criminals that refuse to abide by the laws. Liberals never will understand that simple concept.
