BROOKFIELD- A young woman who works as a housekeeper at the Azana Spa and Salon in Brookfield is sharing her perspective on the deadly shooting.

Rebekah, who prefers not to reveal her last name, says she wasn't at the salon the day of the shooting.  But when she heard about it, she knew exactly who would be the perpetrator.

She remembers hearing about Zina Haughton's marital problems. 

"We knew that her husband was not very nice to her.  We heard a lot of stuff about things that were happening at home.  We didn't hear much about it.  She was a very quiet lady," explains Rebekah.

A 9-1-1 call placed by Zina on October 4 is chilling.  She called police from her cell phone, after her husband, Radcliffe Haughton, slashed her tires.

Dispatcher: "9-1-1 emergency."
Zina: "I'm at Azana Salon and Spa in Brookfield."
Dispatcher: "Um hmm."
Zina: "And I'm having um... Marital problems.  And my husband just came to my job and slashed my tires."
Dispatcher: "Were you out there when it happened?"
Zina: "Uh yes, well I was walking away from my car."

Rebekah met with Azana staff members on Tuesday.  She describes the injuries of those who survived the shooting.

"One of them was shot in the neck.  The other was shot in the leg, the other one was shot in the wrist.  And then there was a pregnant client that was there, I don't know where she was shot but I know it was three times," says Rebekah.

The fourth shooting victim was Azana's receptionist, who's still in the hospital.

"She was pregnant as well, the one who was shot in the neck," explains Rebekah.

Both of the pregnant shooting victims and their babies are expected to be OK.
