Atwater Village shooting remains under investigation



ATWATER VILLAGE —   Detectives continue to search for the suspect or suspects involved in a shooting that left a Glendale resident dead in Atwater Village last weekend.

32-year-old Sevak Ghazarian was walking just a few blocks from his home when he was shot near the intersection of Glendale Boulevard and Revere Avenue at around 10:45 p.m on Saturday, Sept. 10, police said. He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

“We do not believe the victim had any gang affiliation, but we don’t know about the suspects,”  said Detective Lisa Governo with LAPD’s Northeast Division. “We don’t have enough information at this point.”

The fatal shooting was the only homicide reported so far this year in Atwater Village, according to the L.A. Times Homicide Report. The last murder took place one year ago in the 4100 block of Willimet Avenue.

  1. det. governo has snowball’s chance of cracking this case with an approach based on assessing the potential “gang affilation” of the victim or suspects..
    The absence of ability in the armenian language and a lack of contacts in the glendale-armenian community leaves Northeast Station detectives at a critical disadvantage in their investigation.
    However, the same basic rules apply as in any murder investigation and the same basic list of possible motives would apply in explaining why the victim was targeted.
    With the exception of there being a higher than average probability that a spouse or family member was involved, but wasn’t motivated by any particular disagreement or dispute with the victim.
    They just wanted to cash out the life insurance policy.
