A story for every victim

Hovik Krboyan, 37

Hovik Krboyan, a 37-year-old Armenian man, died Wednesday, Sept. 14, after he was shot in the 4900 block of Medina Drive in Woodland Hills, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

A Los Angeles police detective told KTLA-TV that Krboyan opened the door to his home shortly before midnight on Sept. 13 because he had ordered a pizza. Instead, he was met by assailants who opened fire.

Krboyan was shot multiple times, according to Ed Winter, spokesman for the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner.

Krboyan's wife and daughter, who were inside the home, were not harmed. Detectives interviewed neighbors who reported hearing gunshots, according to a news release from the LAPD.

Police think Krboyan knew the assailants. The pizza delivery arrived minutes after the shooting, KTLA-TV reported.

“We aren’t sure yet what’s behind this man’s shooting, but cases like this often stem from business or domestic disputes,” LAPD Capt. Paul Vernon said in a statement.

Anyone with details is urged to call LAPD Det. John Doerbecker at (818) 374-1943. Those who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
