WAUKESHA — Carroll University invited members of the community to a vigil Wednesday evening, October 24th for the victims of the Azana Salon & Spa shooting. The vigil was meant to shine a light on victims of domestic violence.
Students and members of the community gathered Wednesday evening to remember the victims of Sunday’s shooting in Brookfield, including the gunman’s wife, Zina Haughton — a casualty of domestic violence.
Some said they’re struggling after warning signs were seen long before any gunfire. A friend of Zina’s, who told FOX6 News she knew Zina for over 12 years took part in Wednesday’s vigil.
“It could have not happened. Things need to change. We’ve got to do something. Our hearts, our prayers and our thoughts go out to everybody,” Zina’s friend told FOX6 News.
“I will be lying if I tell you it will get better, because in reality it won’t. What I can tell you is that your community will always be there for you,” another vigil attendee told FOX6 News.
The group raising awareness about domestic violence and gun violence also displayed that message following the shooting at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek in August, during which six were killed and three were injured.
“Even in the darkest places of our time, a little flickering candle can remind us of a light of hope,” a vigil attendee told FOX6 News.
