Suspect Named in Deadly Valley Village Restaurant Shooting
28-year-old Nerses Galstyan of North Hollywood has been named as the suspect in Saturday's Valley Village restaurant shooting that left four dead and two injured, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said this afternoon. On Saturday, Galstyan was apparently with the six victims inside the Hot Spot Mediterranean Restaurant and became involved in an argument before shooting them in anger.
"This comes after an extensive non-stop investigation," explained Beck.
"A great deal of physical evidence that leads to this," added Kevin McClure, the Commanding Officer of LAPD's Robbery and Homicide Division. "We served two search warrants [in North Hollywood and Glendale) this morning... We truly believe he's still in the area." McClure believes family or friends may be aiding Galstyan.
