Armenian Father, Daughter Murdered in Little Armenia

LOS ANGELES–An Armenian American father and his 8-year-old
daughter have been found shot to death in their Hollywood apartment,
reported KTLA news.

Police are classifying the case as a "double homicide."

The bodies, identified as Khachik Safaryan, 43, and his daughter Lusine, 8,
were discovered about 3:15 p.m. Thursday on the 1200 block of Tamarind
Avenue, south of Sunset Boulevard in the Little Armenia neighborhood.

Sgt. Ruby Malachi, who identified the victims as Armenian, said that there was
no motive and were no suspects.

Police say the girl’s 15-year-old sister found her bleeding on the couch with
a gunshot wound to the head.

Officers later found the body of the 43-year old father in another room.

"They were both shot in the head," Lee said.

It appeared the victims had been seen early Thursday morning, Lee added.

The family car, a white 2008 Infiniti with California license plate 6DQV763,
was reported missing and was later found.
