Four men arrested after Burbank police respond to shots fired call

Four men have been arrested on suspicion of illegally possessing firearms after Burbank police responded to reports of gunshots Thursday morning that sparked a brief neighborhood evacuation.

Those arrested on Thursday include: Burbank resident Armen Galstyan, 52; Artak Grigoryan, 37, and Vigen Manukyan, 27, both of Glendale; and Armen Mouradian, 23, of Los Angeles.

Galstyan was also arrested on suspicion of identity theft.

Police responded to reports of shots fired at a home in the 1800 block of Keeler Street at 6:50 a.m. Thursday.


SWAT officers were called in because three of the men initially refused to come out, police said.

The area was evacuated for approximately two hours, and police closed streets at Keeler and Peyton Avenue, Grismer Avenue and Elliot Drive, and Keeler at Morgan Avenue. No injuries were reported.

After authorities obtained a search warrant, they recovered several weapons in the home,  Sgt. Darin Ryburn said.
