28-year-old Nerses Galstyan, the suspect who allegedly shot six people at a Valley Village restaurant earlier this month, has been arrested, according to the LA Times, which cited sources "who spoke on condition of anonymity."

Nerses' brother Samuel Galstyan was also apparently arrested. Both were captured in the Seattle suburb of Kemore and could be transported to the Los Angeles area by Wednesday.

Galstyan allegedly began firing shots in a restaurant on the afternoon of April 3rd after an argument turned heated. Four of the six hit died. Read LAist's full coverage of the shooing here.
