Authorities said Thursday that a man has been arrested in the death of Jacqueline Avant, a local philanthropist and wife of legendary music executive Clarence Avant, during a home invasion in the couple’s Beverly Hills, California, residence.

Aariel Maynor, 29, of Los Angeles, was identified as the suspect by the Beverly Hills Police Department.

Beverly Hills Police Chief Stainbrook told reporters, “This is one of the most protected and patrolled cities in the world.” “There will be no room for crime here.”

Maynor was discovered with a gunshot wound to the foot at a separate burglary in Los Angeles shortly after the early Wednesday murder, according to Stainbrook. The wound was apparently caused by an unintentional self-infliction.

Avant, 81, was discovered shot inside her home shortly before 2:30 a.m. She died later in a hospital. According to police, a security officer was present at the time of the murder.

According to the chief, Maynor was caught on surveillance and city cameras driving east from Beverly Hills after shooting Avant. Authorities believe he acted on his own.

The number of shots fired was not specified by officials. Watch the video below for the full press conference.
