BROOKFIELD, WI - Police are looking for a suspect after several people were shot at a hair salon near a mall Sunday morning in the Milwaukee area, witnesses and police said.

Authorities were investigating a suspicious device that was left in or near the salon, which is across the street from Brookfield Square in Brookfield, about 10 miles west of Milwaukee. Bomb squads and FBI tactical and hostage teams were on the scene, authorities told NBC News.

Four people were being treated at Froedtert Memorial Hospital, none of them in critical condition, and three more were expected, Beth Strohbusch, a spokeswoman for the hospital, told NBC News. A breaking news e-mail from NBC stated that three people have died and four were injured.

No children were believed to have been injured, according to the hospital, which was on lockdown with the gunman at loose.

Witnesses said the shootings happened either at or near the Azana Salon and Spa, across Moorland Road from the mall. Brookfield Square was closed as SWAT team members scoured the area for the suspect, identified as Radcliffe Franklin Haughton, 45, of Brown Deer, about 15 miles north of Milwaukee. He was described as an "ethnic" male, 6 feet, 2 inches tall, weighing about 210 pounds and last seen wearing a grey sweater with blue jeans and carrying a white and black backpack.

Police were surrounding Haughton's home in Brown Deer, NBC station WTMJ of Milwaukee reported.

Two workers at the salon said he was the estranged husband of one of their co-workers, a hairstylist. They said they didn't know whether he had left or was still in another part of the building.

Public records indicate that a 45-year-old man named Radcliffe Haughton of Brown Deer was charged with domestic violence and disorderly conduct in January 2011. The charges were dismissed in June of that year. 

Public records also suggest several years of financial problems, with a civil judgment for $19,000 in 2006 and a state tax lien for $5,000 in 2009. His home has been listed as for sale by owner. His former job, from 2003 to 2007, is listed in public records as general manager of a former Land Rover dealership in the Glendale area of Milwaukee County.
