TAMARAC, FLORIDA – Police said Clive Muir, 65, shot and killed Anne Nau, 21, and then went to a Boston Market he worked at and shot manager Jason Claire. Police did not release a motive.
A man shot two people in Tamarac Friday before shooting himself, authorities said.
Broward Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Gina Carter said the suspect shot and killed a woman, Anne Nau, 21, shortly after 12:15 p.m. at an apartment building in the area of Northwest 75th Street and 79th Avenue.
Carter said the man, identified as Clive Muir, 65, then drove about 2 miles to a Boston Market at 5700 N. University Drive where he used to work.
Deputies said Muir had been fired from the same restaurant in September.
The restaurant was open for business when Muir arrived, deputies said. Alerted to the presence of an armed man, a female employee tried to lock the door, believing they were about to be robbed.
The employee was unable to lock the door in time, deputies said. Muir struggled with the employee and fought his way into the office. That’s when Muir then shot assistant manager Jason Claire, 33, Carter said.
Muir paused to look at the female employee, but did not fire, according to BSO deputies. He fled the restaurant, got into Nau’s car and began to drive away.
Muir then stopped the car in the restaurant’s drive-thru lane, stepped out and shot himself, deputies said.
Claire was airlifted to a hospital.
Employees told Local 10 News that Clive was a former manager at the restaurant and believed that he was romantically involved with Nau. They said Nau was also a manager at the Boston Market.
“She grew up without her mom and her dad; her four brothers raised her,” Nau’s friend, Kay, said. “They helped her go through everything from puberty to college. I think she was studying to be a cardiologist, so to be that young, living on your own, paying your own bills, and you’re a manager at 21 — that’s something great from not having no parents around.”
Friends said Claire started working at the Boston Market about four months ago.
A motive was not immediately clear, but a friend of Muir’s told Local 10 News that Muir was trying to get back together with Nau, although she was no longer interested in pursuing a relationship with him.
“He’s trying to get over the girl, but it’s very hard,” Bobby Sinclair said. “I encourage him and I say, ‘move on. Let’s go to Jamaica and find some girls in Jamaica.’ We were sitting there and we talked and he left.”
