A shooting at a spa near a Brookfield, Wis., mall on Sunday left four dead–including the shooter–and four others wounded, police said. The suspected gunman, 45-year-old Radcliffe Haughton, of Brown Deer, Wis., was later found dead inside.

The shooting occurred at the Azana Spa across the street from the Brookfield Square Mall at approximately 11:15 a.m. local time, police said. Inside the spa, police found what appeared to be an improvised explosive device (IED), and a bomb squad was called in as officials worked to clear the two-story building.

“Our entire operation is focused on locating the suspect,” Brookfield Police Chief Daniel Tushaus said at a press conference earlier Sunday.

A spokeswoman for Froedtert Memorial Hospital told the Associated Press that said four shooting victims were being treated for non-life threatening injuries at the hospital.

Authorities did not immediately release a motive. But according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, a restraining order requested by Haughton’s wife was issued against him on Thursday in Milwaukee County Circuit Court. And according to WISN-TV, she worked at the spa.
