The two counts of attempted murder he was initially charged with were dismissed, according to Greg Risling, spokesman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
Three Burbank men — Araik Ovoian, 24, Gevork Bagdasaryan, 19, and Alex Akbari, 18 — were also charged in the incident and were ordered this week to stand trial following a two-day preliminary hearing.
Though the minor was named during the preliminary hearing, it’s the Burbank Leader’s policy not to name juvenile suspects.
