BURBANK — A Glendale man was arrested this morning in connection with the death of a 48-year-old woman who was fatally wounded outside her home, police said.

Arpiar Terrgalstanyan, 20, was arrested about 3:30 a.m. today, and 29-year-old Armen Mangasaryan of Burbank was taken into custody about 8 a.m. Wednesday in connection with the shooting death of the woman, Burbank Police Sgt. Robert Quesada said.

The men may have gone to the home to collect payment for an unpaid debt, but the type of debt owed to them is unknown, he said.

The woman answered her home’s front door after she heard either a doorbell or knock and was shot once at about 12:20 a.m. Wednesday, Quesada said. The woman’s boyfriend, who also was in the home during the shooting, found her lying on the ground near the front door, he said.


“This is not a random act,” he said. “There was a connection here.”

Police recovered a handgun and seized a black Mercedes-Benz, which may have been used as a getaway car after the shooting, he said.
