LOS ANGELES—Authorities continued their investigation on June 20 into a shooting near a smoke shop in Valley Glen in Los Angeles that left two men dead and another man critically wounded.

The shooting was reported at about 10 p.m. on June 19 at Coldwater Canyon Avenue and Victory Boulevard, according to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD).

One of the fatally wounded men was identified Tuesday by the Los Angeles County coroner’s office as Arkadi Simonyan, 44, of Los Angeles. The name of the other fatally wounded man was withheld, pending notification of his relatives.

The third wounded man was taken to a hospital in critical condition, according to police, which said the survivor was under investigation as a “possible suspect” in the shooting.

According to the Los Angeles Times, an argument among a group of men at a strip mall led to two of the men drawing guns and firing multiple shots.

LAPD Captain Brian O’Connor said there were no other suspects being sought in connection with the shooting, the newspaper reported.

The argument and shooting may have stemmed from a car crash between a Mercedes SUV and a Mercedes sedan, according to the newspaper. Aerial news video showed a car with bullet holes in the windshield parked in the strip mall parking lot near where the men were found by police.

Anyone with information about the case was urged to call the LAPD Valley Bureau homicide office at 818-374-9550, or 877-LAPD-247.
