Rodgers: Fundraiser will benefit shooting victims

BROOKFIELD (AP) -

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says he and Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun will hold a fundraiser for the victims of the Brookfield salon shooting and their families.

Rodgers and Braun own the 8-12 restaurant in Brookfield. Rodgers says the restaurant ties them to the community, so they're looking for a way to help out.

WTMJ (http://tinyurl.com/9utgphn ) reports plans for the fundraiser are still being finalized by Rodgers' and Braun's restaurant partner, Omar Shaikh. They say 100% of the proceeds will go to the victims and their families.

Three employees of the Azana Salon & Spa were killed Sunday in a shooting that wounded four other women. Police say the gunman took his own life at the spa.
