88 year old Roy Charles Laird is accused of shooting his 86 year old wife.

An 88-year-old man was in police custody Sunday after he allegedly shot and killed an 86-year-old woman  at a Seal Beach convalescent home, authorities said.

The  shooting occurred about noon at the Country Villa Healthcare Center, Seal Beach Police Sgt. Steve Bowles said.

Within three minutes of 911 calls, officers from the Seal Beach Police Department surrounded the facility and were joined by the California Highway Patrol, Los Alamitos police, Cypress police and Orange County sheriff’s deputies, Bowles said.

When they entered the facility, they were directed to a room where they found the woman, the man and a .38-caliber revolver, Bowles said.
