Authorities have identified the four men killed in a shooting at a San Fernando Valley restaurant, as the search for the gunman continues.
In a statement Sunday, Los Angeles police named those killed as: 28-year-old Harut Baburyan; 26-year-old Sarkis Karadjian; 31-year-old Vardan Tofalyan; and 25-year-old Hayk Yegnanyan. No hometowns or other information was released.

Investigators believe the victims in Saturday's shooting at the Hot Spot Cafe in North Hollywood were targeted.

Three of the men died at the scene, while the fourth died at a hospital. Two other people were wounded and are expected to survive.

Investigators believe the victims in Saturday's shooting at the Hot Spot Cafe in Valley Village were targeted, said Deputy Chief Kirk Albanese.

"We don't have a crazed gunman running around North Hollywood that presents an immediate threat to public safety, to anyone in their homes or businesses in the area," Albanese said.

"However, this is also not a random act of violence, this was an intentional act."
