GLENDALE : Police Seek Suspect in Fatal Shooting

A Glendale man was shot to death Thursday morning after a dispute in his home, and police were seeking a 41-year-old suspect living at the same address, officials said.

"Sounds like it may have been a family-related incident," Glendale Police Officer Rodney Brooks said.

The victim's identification was withheld pending notification of his relatives. Police declined to say exactly where he was shot and how he was related to Zhirayr Karayan, the man being sought. Karayan is considered armed and dangerous, Sgt. Lief Nicolaisen said.

Officers responded to a possible shots-fired call at 9:15 a.m. in the 1900 block of Bel Aire Drive, an upper-middle class neighborhood, and discovered the victim. Investigators said a handgun was fired but declined to elaborate on how the shooting occurred and what the motive was.

Four witnesses--possibly the victim's family members or relatives--inside the home were questioned at the police station.

Karayan is on probation for a 1991 drunk-driving arrest, according to court records.
