Aram Sashoyan, 29

Aram Sashoyan, a 29-year-old Armenian man, was shot and killed Wednesday, May 28, in the 800 block of South Vermont Avenue in Koreatown, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

The men got into a green sedan and drove east on Francis Avenue. When officers entered the clinic, they saw Sashoyan, of Glendale, inside.

Paramedics responded and pronounced the man dead at 10:37 p.m., said Ed Winter, a coroner’s spokesman. An autopsy showed that he died from a gunshot wound, Winter said.
