Legendary music executive Clarence Avant’s wife has been shot dead by robbers in a home invasion in an elite Los Angeles neighborhood.

Beverly Hills police were called to the home in neighboring Trousdale Estates around 2.30am on Tuesday night after a 911 caller said someone had been shot and killed, according to TMZ.

Avant’s wife of 54 years, Jacqueline Avant, was rushed to hospital, where she later died, before police arrived.

She was 81 years old. 

A family source told TMZ that robbers fired shots as they entered the Trousdale Estates home and hit Avant’s wife. 

Avant, 90, was home at the time, but it’s unclear whether he has been injured in the attack. 

The legendary music executive was inducted into the Rock and Hall of Fame in October, with his wife by his side.

The couple’s daughter, Nicole Avant, 53, is married to Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos.
