Several areas near the spa – including a shopping centre, a country club and a hospital – are locked down, as the search for the suspect continues.
Brookfield Police Chief Dan Tushaus described the situation as “fluid and ongoing”.

At least 20 fire, ambulance and police vehicles are there in addition to a medical helicopter on the ground.
It was the second mass shooting in Wisconsin this year.
