The fatal shootings of Westminster’s city clerk and a Los Alamitos police captain in Seal Beach on Sunday appear to be a murder and suicide, according to an autopsy report by the Orange County Coroner.
Findings of the inquiry indicate that Capt. Rick Moore, 49, a Seal Beach resident, shot Amanda Jensen, 35, of Garden Grove three times with his own automatic pistol before killing himself with a single shot.
Moore and Jensen reportedly had a relationship marked by domestic violence incidents.
