A California man shot his wife and then himself outside a divorce lawyer’s office on Sunday afternoon in downtown Petaluma, police say.

Kevin Conover, 41, and his wife, Kim Conover, 43, died after being taken to local hospitals, report the Bay City News Service, the Press Democrat and the San Francisco Chronicle. Kim Conover was a second grade teacher and the mother of four children. She had twin toddlers with her husband and two teen girls, the Press Democrat says.

Police said the lawyer, Jeff Zimmerman, witnessed the shooting, according to the Press Democrat. He was handcuffed and led away for questioning until police determined he was not involved.

Zimmerman refused to comment when contacted by Bay City News. Some friends of the couple told the Press Democrat that they were getting divorced.
