From the LA Times website:
Los Angeles police are searching for a man suspected in a monthlong series of violent crimes stretching across the region, including a shooting last week in Panorama City that left one man dead and a carjacking Friday that launched a wild pursuit and standoff.
Detectives with the Los Angeles Police Department's elite Robbery-Homicide Division have worked around the clock in recent days to find Artyom Gasparyan, 32, who investigators believe is responsible for crimes including robbery, carjacking and attempted murder dating back to Dec. 6. The crimes began in northeast Los Angeles, police said, but also occurred in Burbank, West Hollywood and Carson.
Investigators have also linked Gasparyan to the police pursuit Friday that began on the 105 Freeway in Carson and ended with a standoff in Long Beach, where a man suspected of being Gasparyan's accomplice fled in a stolen vehicle.
That accomplice, identified by the LAPD as Daniel Ramirez, was taken into custody after police say he ran into a Long Beach home, shot two men, stabbed another and then turned the gun on himself.

Police consider Gasparyan armed and dangerous, according to an LAPD statement issued Saturday evening. He was described as a 5-foot-7, 170-pound Armenian man with black hair, brown eyes and facial hair.
Capt. Billy Hayes, who heads the Robbery-Homicide Division, said Gasparyan is considered a suspect in Wednesday's killing of a 37-year-old man who was fatally shot near Van Nuys Boulevard and Plummer Street. Paramedics found the victim lying near a car and took him to a hospital, where he died.
Police initially described that killing as a "road rage" incident.
Burbank police also announced Saturday evening that Gasparyan was suspected in a Dec. 9 double shooting in the 1700 block of North Catalina Street that left two people wounded.
At the time, Burbank police said a 67-year-old man was shot multiple times that morning outside his home. A 33-year-old gardener, who was working down the street, was also shot once in the foot as the suspect fled, the man's co-worker told the Burbank Leader.
Burbank police said Saturday that they were working with the LAPD on the investigation.
Anyone with information about Gasparyan is asked to call detectives at (213) 486-6890.
