Investigators into the Valley Village restaurant shooting say the suspect may have acted out because "he was fed up with being disrespected by the victims," the LA Times is reporting. Nerses Galstyan was allegedly with the group of victims inside the Hot Spot on Riverside Drive when an argument broke out. He then is said to have drawn his gun shooting six of them, killing four. “He was apparently tired of being downtrodden,” said Capt. Kevin McClure.
