BURBANK, Calif. - Authorities continue to investigate a shooting at a Burbank home that left two men dead and a woman critically wounded early Tuesday.
The Burbank Police Department began receiving calls of gunshots fired around 1:25 a.m. According to officials, one of the calls came from a woman who was screaming and stated that her husband was dying.
Burbank police officers arrived at the home in the 900 block of Cambridge Drive, located across from Bel Aire Park. Arriving officers discovered a couple inside the home suffering from gunshot wounds.
The man inside the home who was shot to death was identified by the coroner's office as 41-year-old Armen Sahakyan, of Burbank. The identity of the woman, who is Sahakyan’s wife, is not being released. She was transported to a local trauma center where she remains in critical condition with life-threatening injuries.
Investigators discovered a second man on the driveway who was pronounced dead at the scene. The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office identified the man as Edward Lopez, a 34-year-old resident of Los Angeles.
Authorities said Lopez is a suspect in the homicide, "which does not appear to be a random act."
"His motive remains unclear and the investigation is ongoing," Burbank Police said.
It is currently unknown how Lopez is connected with the couple.
Officials also said three children under the age of 18 were found inside the home. They were taken into protective custody by police but have since been reunited with family.
No further information was immediately released.
Anyone with information about the incident was asked to contact the Burbank Police Department Investigations Division at 818-238-3210.
