The shooting continued for about three hours. The grenade blasts shattered windows in nearby homes. At the Mherian home, first a soldier and then one of the Arabs took up positions on his roof. The Arab had clambered across rooftops two houses away to reach the home of the Mherians, who are of Armenian descent.
By dawn, when silence had returned to the neighborhood, Mherian's high-school-aged daughter discovered the body lying in a corner of the roof. There was a crater, evidently from a grenade that sprayed shrapnel all over and killed the Arab. His nationality was not clear to the Mherians.
Ardashees Mherian, a computer salesman, rushed to the street and told the soldiers, "There's a body on my roof."
They quickly carried the dead man away, but the Mherians have been unable to remove all the blood that stained their roof.
Someone tipped us I bet!
