Following the death of Jacqueline, who is Clarence Avant’s wife, one suspect has been arrested. 

According to the Los Angeles Times, they arrested the suspect by the name Ariel Maynor moments after the shooting incident. 

According to the outlet reporter, the incident occurred at around 2:30 am. Confirming the incident, the outlet noted that Ariel Maynor broke into the home at around 2:30 am. 

Breaking into Jacqueline and her husband’s property in Trousdale Estates occurred on Wednesday morning (December 1). The shooting of the 81-year-old philanthropist was by an AR-15 rifle, after which the gunman fled. 

Attempting to leave Beverly Hills in his vehicle, the suspect was intercepted and arrested. 

Acknowledging the incident, Beverly Hills Police Chief Mark Stainbrook condoned with the family and confirmed the arrest of the suspect. During the attack, other casualties were the guard and her husband, music executive Clarence aka “The Black Godfather. 

Occurring on the same day was another incident whereby a man was later found in the backyard of a Hollywood home during an attempted robbery, which, however, failed since the man accidentally shot himself in the foot before being taken to a hospital. 

An astute watch commander conceptualized the existing relationship between the shooting and, who then resolved to alert the authorities. 

The gunmen used as an entry point sliding door glass, according to investigators responding to calls about the Beverly Hills shooting. They arrived at the Avant estate on Wednesday, where they discovered Jacqueline with gunshot wounds. 

Motivating factor for the shooting incident is yet to be established since they reported no missing items. Robbing or burglarizing a residence motivates home invasions, but that was not the case. Investigating Jacqueline’s murder and establishing the motive continues.
