Investigators seek motive, clues in freeway shooting

Freeway shooting victim identified

Authorities were still trying to sort out a shooting on the 210 Freeway that left a Glendale woman dead and a man in the hospital with a self-inflicted wound to the torso.

Police found the body of Adrine Arzumanyan, 33, dumped on the shoulder of the westbound 210 near La Crescenta Avenue in La Crescenta. She had been shot in the head. Shortly afterward, detectives came in contact with a man driving a black Honda on the 2 Freeway. The man had shot himself in an attempted suicide, according to the sheriff’s department.

On Saturday morning, several members of Arzumanyan’s family gathered at her Glendale apartment, sobbing and consoling one another in the wake of her death. Vic Arzumanyan, the woman's brother, said sheriff’s deputies had offered the family little information. He said he did not know who was in the car on Friday with his sister.

“It was an accident,” he said.

Police did not identify the Honda driver who had allegedly shot himself.

The brother said "it was an accident"

obviously he has no clue. this clearly was not an accident

"Vic Arzumanyan, the woman's brother, said sheriff’s deputies had offered the family little information. He said he did not know who was in the car on Friday with his sister.

“It was an accident,” he said."

If the victim's brother is calling it an "accident," he clearly knows exactly who was in the car with his sister.
