Honor killings are a prt of the Armenian culture.
Homicide detectives of Los AngelesCounty sheriff arrested 27-year-old Aram Sarukhanyan on Tuesday on suspicion of murder after he was released from HuntingtonMemorialHospital. He had been admitted as result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound shortly after the body of his cousin, Adrine Arzumanyan, was found on the La Crescenta Avenue offramp, Glendale News Press reports.
As Armenian News-NEWS.am reported earlier, an Armenian woman who was shot dead and dumped on freeway in Glendale was related to her alleged assailant.
Adrine Arzumanyan, 33, was shot at least once and then pushed from a car onto the freeway, the newspaper writes.
“There is some kind of family relationship,” said Lt. Mike Rosson, adding that investigators are trying to determine whether they might have been cousins, or possibly related by marriage.
The shooter suffered an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound and was taken to hospital, law enforcers said.
