Angle of gunshot wound confirms homicide

Suren Christopher Donoyan, a 53-year old white man, was found dead with a gunshot wound to his head on Nov. 25 in an apartment in North Hollywood, according to coroner's officials. 

Donoyan's body was found in a decomposed state and initially coroner's officials said they were trying to determine whether his death was a homicide or suicide. Ultimately, due to the angle of the gunshot wound the coroner ruled his death a homicide.

The case is being investigated by detectives from LAPD's North Hollywood division.
