Wis. salon shooter asked taxi driver's advice

MILWAUKEE (AP) - A man who shot seven people before killing himself at a Wisconsin salon asked a taxi driver for advice on how to handle his wife on his way there.

That's according to the Brookfield Police Department, which released hundreds of pages of police reports on Friday, as well as 911 calls and security video.

Radcliffe Haughton fatally shot his estranged wife, Zina, and two other women at the Azana salon and spa on Oct. 21 before killing himself. Four other people were wounded.

Police interviewed the taxi driver who took Haughton to the salon. The driver told police Haughton said he was having problems with his wife, purchased a gun and asked the driver what he would do. The driver said he would do nothing because it "wasn't worth it."
