Music legend Clarence Avant’s wife Jacqueline was reportedly shot and killed in a horrific robbery at their Beverly Hills home.
Jacqueline was 81-years-old at the time of her death.
According to TMZ, the home invasion unfolded at the Trousdale Estates, a high-end neighborhood in Beverly Hills.
Police responded to a home invasion call at 2.30 a.m. on Tuesday night; the caller told the dispatcher someone had been shot, the outlet reported.
Jacquline had allegedly been taken to a nearby hospital by the time cops arrived on the scene.
A source close to the family told TMZ that Clarence was home at the time of the incident.
It is unknown at this time if he was hurt.
I’m not speculating on this unfortunate situation, but speaking in general terms. Mr. Avant and is wife may have prepared for this moment, or maybe they never did. Home invasions are the worst kind of crime and we are seeing more and more lately. These situations can happen to anyone at anytime and no one, no matter where you live is 100% safe.
You have a choice… You can walk around oblivious to the fact that a predator can single you out at anytime and hope that it never happens, or you can prepare yourself mentally and physically to protect yourself and your family.
