One woman was killed and a man was injured following a shooting at a Tarzana home that police described Sunday as a result of an argument.
Police received a "shooting in progress call" at 7:20 p.m. Saturday in the 4500 block of Vanalden Avenue, said Lt. Teresa Wallin, of the LAPD's West Valley station.
"Two victims sustained gunshot wounds and were transported to the hospital," Wallin said.
One of them, 51-year-old Azniv Meguerian, of Tarzana, died, Wallin said. The other victim, 49-year-old Michael Carver, remains in serious, but stable condition, Wallin said.
Police arrested Hrant Meguerian, 59, in connection with the shooting. Wallin said he was Azniv Meguerian's ex-husband who had moved back into the home.
The shooting appeared to be a result of an argument, Wallin said.
"Mr. Meguerian produced a handgun and shot the victims," Wallin said.
Meguerian remained at the scene and was taken into custody.
He was booked in connection with murder and attempted murder. His bail was set at $1 million.
Anyone with information is asked to call the West Valley Homicide Unit at 818-374-7720. Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
