Boca Raton Police said a man, identified as 63-year-old Scott Edgerton, shot and killed 56-year-old Sharon Bellingham then shot himself. Bellingham was the marketing director of the accounting firm.

Edgerton and Bellingham had been married for 27 years, police said. Edgerton had retired from the Faulk Center for Counseling about a year ago.

The couple have two adult children, and they were very close to their friend of more than 20 years Jack Glus.

"They are nice people. I'm so upset right now. I just don't understand why this happened," he said.

Glus said: "We went over for a part couple months ago. Everything was fine."

Police are still investigating the incident.

A telephone message left at CBIZ wasn't immediately answered.
