A husband is believed to have shot and killed his wife in a murder-suicide at a high-end boutique in downtown San Clemente, according to an Orange County Sheriff’s Department news release Sunday.
Responding officers discovered a man and woman’s bodies along with a handgun and did not actively search for anyone else involved.
A sheriff’s department news release Sunday identified the man as 59-year-old John Patrick Dillard and the woman as his wife, 64-year-old Cynthia Jean Rosier.
No other employees of the business were injured, the news release stated.
The 3,000-square-foot store carried “a mix of established and emerging designers,” according to its website.
Anyone with additional information was asked to call the Orange County Sheriff’s Department at 714-647-7000.
