A man police suspected of killing three people and wounding four others in Milwaukee was found dead Sunday afternoon following a six-hour manhunt, CBS news reported. Authorities said they thought the shooting was related to a domestic dispute.

Brookfield Police Chief Dan Tushaus said Haughton shot himself and was found inside a spa. Police said earlier three people were killed and four wounded in the Sunday morning shooting at the Azana Day Spa, according to CBS news. 

Haughton's father, Radcliffe Haughton Sr., told CBS News that the shooter's wife, Zina Haughton, worked at Azana. Haughton's father lives in Florida.

Police said a makeshift explosive device was found at the spa and a bomb squad is investigating. Haughton's father knew the couple were having problems. 

"Milwaukee FBI spokesman Leonard Peace said its SWAT team, hostage negotiators and others were helping with the response. But he declined to say how many FBI personnel were involved in all or provide details on what had happened." according to CBS news.
