After Kim Conover, 31, paid a visit to her divorce attorney on Sunday afternoon, her estranged husband, Kevin Covover, 35, shot and killed her outside said lawyer's office, later turning the gun on himself. "The 2 p.m. shooting happened in front of 10 Keller St., a small office building where the woman had been visiting the attorney," reports The Press Democrat, adding, " Kevin Conover died at 5 p.m. at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital. Police identified him as the shooter and said his wound appears to have been self-inflicted."
When police arrived at the scene, they found the bodies on the street.
Most heartbreaking of all, according to Press Democrat, was that Kim was the mother of four children, "including a twin boy and girl younger than than 2 years old that she had with her husband," and two teen girls.
Incidents like this are few and far between in the small, picturesque town north of San Francisco. (However, the city made national headlines in the Polly Klaas kidnapping-murder case.) "It was this beautiful spring day," quipped Sonoma County Supervisor David Rabbitt, shopping at a just a block away at the time of the shooting. "It makes you pause."
