A dispute between Armenian gang members may have led to an early morning shooting in a fast-food restaurant parking lot on Victory Boulevard that caused the death of one man and injured extremities of another, a police sergeant said.
Witnesses said shortly after 2 a.m. four men in separate cars screamed at each other, Sgt. Michael Kammert said. The witnesses called police, and when officers arrived they found one victim with a gunshot wound to the chest and one victim with gunshot wounds to the right arm, left leg and left foot, he said.
The victims were transported to Holy Cross Hospital where the man in his 30s with the chest wound died, Kammert said. The other victim, believed in his 20s, was treated for his wounds.

The suspects are described as two to four men who fled westbound on Victory Boulevard in a blue sedan, he said.
As of 4:40 a.m. the parking lot was a crime scene, and was expected to remain one for several more hours, Kammert said.
One man is dead and a second is recovering from his wounds at an area hospital following a shooting early this morning outside a Valley Glen McDonald’s, according to CBS2.
The LAPD responded to the call of shots fired at Victory Boulevard and Coldwater Canyon at around 2:00 this morning; witnesses say they heard fighting and screaming, and ultimately a lot of gunfire, per a live report on KTLA. The victims, according to Lt. Alan Hamilton, were both Armenian, though the LAPD do not believe the shooting was gang-related, but rather a dispute that escalated into violence.
The shooters fled the scene, and were last seen in a blue sedan.
