On January 12, 2015, six members of Avetisyan family were brutally killed at their own home in 188 Myasnikyan Street, Gyumri. The seventh and the youngest member of the family – six-month-old Seryozha Avetisyan, the last victim of the Gyumri massacre, died on January 19 after a week’s struggle for life.
