Devastating news coming out of Beverly Hills. Jacqueline Avant, the wife of legendary music executive Clarence Avant, was shot and killed during a home invasion robbery. 

The robbery took place early Wednesday morning in Trousdale Estates, an affluent area neighboring Beverly Hills. 

Beverly Hills police received the call about a home invasion around 2:30 a.m. 

The caller informed the dispatcher that someone had been shot. But the time police arrived, Jackie had already been rushed to a nearby hospital. 

A family source told TMZ the people who broke into the Avant’s home fired shots and hit Jackie. 

Clarence Avant was at home during the invasion. It’s unclear if he was hurt. 

Jacqueline Avant and Clarence were married for 54 years.

She was 81. 

My sincerest condolences to the Avant family and I pray those responsible for this apprehended and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

This story is developing and I will keep you updated as more details become available.
