Authorities say the man accused of killing three and wounding four at a Wisconsin day spa had slashed his wife's tires two weeks before Sunday's shooting.
Brookfield Police Chief Dan Tushaus said at a news conference Sunday night that the man's wife was an employee at the spa. It is not clear if she was among the victims.
The suspect, Radcliffe Franklin Haughton, was found dead inside the spa of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Authorities said he had a four-year restraining order against him.
Officials described finding smoke inside the spa when they responded to reports of the shooting around 11 a.m.
They initially believed an improvised explosive device was inside the building, but later said that was not the case.

Police say three people were killed and four wounded in the Sunday morning shooting at the Azana Day Spa. Authorities spent much of Sunday afternoon looking for Haughton.
