L.A. restaurant shooting not a random act

by Kendall Mark

The four men killed in a shooting at a Mediterranean resteraunt in North Hollywood Saturday are believed to have been targeted, not random victims, USA Today reported.

The dead all had Armenian names and were ages 25 to 31, USA Today said. Two other victims were hospitalized after the shooting, and one remains in critical condition.

The Hot Spot Cafe was usually empty or closed, a man that lives near the restaurant where the shooting took place told the Associated Press. Another resident said people were always outside but never eating.

The Los Angeles Police Deputy Cheif said there was no immediate danger to people in North Hollywood, but that the shooting was an intentional act, the Associated Press said.
