Police say that a 33-year-old former Disney child star named Kevin Crane shot and killed his wife Parisa Siddiqi, 29, won Saturday in The Oaks mall in Thousand Oaks, a wealthy city on the outskirts of Los Angeles.
“Shooting at Oaks Mall appears to be case of domestic violence. The man entered the store and shot his ex-wife, then shot himself. The investigation is ongoing. The woman, who died at the scene is a 30-yr-old TO resident. The man is a 33-yr-old LA area resident,” the sheriff posted on Twitter.
Police say that after shooting his wife, he turned the gun on himself – in a failed suicide attempt. Kevin survived the self-inflicted gunshot wound inside Paper Source, the stationary store where Siddiqi worked and remains hospitalized in critical condition, according to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department.
The couple had two young sons who were not present at the shooting, and have been found safe.
Kevin works as a realtor in Beverly Hills. His upscale clientele included celebrities, athletes, and business executives. He also worked as a child actor for Disney and Warner Brothers, including in the 1994 movie Little Giants, when he would have been about 10.
We’re hoping that they both pull through so that Siddiqi can get some justice.
