The Los Angeles County Coroner’s office has identified the woman who was shot and pushed out of a car on the La Crescenta Avenue offramp on Friday.
Adriane Arzumanyan’s body was allegedly shoved out of a vehicle that was traveling westbound on the Foothill (210) freeway about 5:15 p.m. Her body was found on the La Crescenta Avenue off ramp.
The 33-year-old victim was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency responders.
“There were multiple gun shots [to Arzumanyan],” said Ed Winter of the L.A. Coroner’s office.
The cause of death has not been determined as of press time. Arzumanyan’s autopsy is scheduled for today (Monday).
Crescenta Valley Sheriff has taken over the investigation. Anyone with information concerning this incident should contact the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department at (323) 890-5500. Reports can be made anonymously.
Glendale Police Department initially responded to shots fired in the area at about 5 p.m. After dumping Arzumanyan’s body, the suspect, whose identity has not been released by authorities, then apparently continued up the offramp and returned to the 210 freeway traveling eastbound then southbound on the Glendale (2) freeway.
In its investigation the Glendale Police Department performed a traffic stop of the suspect’s vehicle near the Mountain Street exit of the Glendale (2) freeway. It was then that the man shot himself in an apparent attempted suicide. The man was transported to a nearby hospital. Information on his condition is not available.
