Valery Permyakov, a regular soldier of the Russian military base deployed in Gyumri, is suspected of the attack. On the same day, he was detained not far from the border village of Bayandur of the Shirak Region.

According to Unan Pogosyan, the Deputy Chief of the Armenian Police, Valery Permyakov said that he left the military base in order to walk around the city and happened to be near the Avetisyan house.

In his testimony, the detainee stated he wanted to drink and entered a house, where the murder took place then.
