A Beverly Hills police unit was posted outside the couple's $7 million hilltop mansion on the 1100 block of Maytor place. The home invaders shattered a rear glass door to enter the residence around 2:20 a.m. Clarence Avant, 90, was at home at the time, but he wasn't harmed.

The Beverly Hills Police Department will hold a news conference at 12:30 p.m. PT to reveal details about the arrest.

Movie mogul Tyler Perry vowed to use his wealth and "every available resource" to help find the murderer.

He mentioned the couple's daughter, former US Ambassador to the Bahamas, Nicole Avant, in a tweet.

"My heart breaks for Clarence and Nicole and all the Avant family," he tweeted on Thursday. "This world can be so cruel and cold!! I have no idea what kind of sub-human could shoot an 81 year old woman, and in her own home."

He added, "But you can rest assured that every available resource will be used to find whoever is responsible for this awful nightmare. This is tremendously sad."

Netflix has shifted $100 million to Black banks to follow through on its commitment to close the equity gap.

Netflix's co-CEO Ted Sarandos (2nd from right) is married to Nicole Avant (right), daughter of music legend Clarence Avant (left) and Jacqueline Avant (2nd from left).

Mrs. Avant, 81, was killed during a home invasion in Beverly Hills on Wednesday.

Netflix moved 2 percent of its cash holdings, $100 million, to Black banks to address systemic racism, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Black financial institutions include Hope Credit Union, the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), The Change Company, Enterprise Community Impact Note, OneUnited Bank and Calvert Impact Capital's Community Investment Note.

Netflix's goal is to improve systemic racism that prevents Black-owned businesses from getting loans, especially those impacted by the pandemic.

"Because we pegged our commitment to 2 percent of Netflix’s cash, the investment also grows overtime [sic]. So we will be 'topping up' our commitment at the end of the year and moving more cash — over and above the $100 million already committed — into these institutions," Netflix's Aaron Mitchell and Shannon Alwyn wrote in a Dec. 1 post.
