According to the reports by TMZ, at least one of the burglars made his way into the luxury home and shot at Jacqueline.

The Beverly Hills Police Department got a call about the incident at 2:30 in the morning. Upon reaching the house, they found that Jacqueline had already been rushed to the hospital. She later passed on.

Clarance was also at home during the invasion but was not injured in the ordeal. While it is not certain what the motive of the attack was, the police, according to Daily Mail, say they are looking into all possibilities.

According to reports provided to the Hollywood Reporter concerning the matter, Beverly Hills Police Chief Mark G. Stainbrook said of the incident:

"I don't think it's a random attack. Crime of any type will not be tolerated, and we will not rest until the suspect or suspects are brought to justice."

The who's who in the industry have since sent out their tributes. Bill Clinton mused over how great of a woman Jacqueline was, saying that she was a wonderful friend to him and his wife Hillary for many years.

Tyler Perry said he would dedicate his resources to bring to justice the perpetrator of the crime. Other celebrities such as Tyrese, Viola Davis, and Earvin Magic Johnson also sent their condolences on social media.

Jacqueline's legacy as a noted philanthropist will live on. She was a massive supporter of child care and served on the Board of Directors of the International Student Center at UCLA.

The "Godfather of Black Music," who was inducted into the "Rock n Roll" Hall of Fame only a month ago, has been married to his late wife for the past 54 years.

Their love story is one built on immense love and trust. Together they have beaten all odds to become one of Hollywood's long-lived couples. Married in 1967, they share two children, Alexander Du Bois and Nicole Avant.

Nicole is the former U.S. ambassador to the Bahamas and is married to Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos. She is also a producer of the 2019 Netflix documentary "The Black Godfather," which chronicles her father's story.

The power couple is dedicated not only to what they can do for themselves but also to the positive ways they can impact the world and those around them.
