Their families had been next-door neighbors and close friends in Armenia, and the Gumuryan brothers thought it would be a relaxing break to take Armen Shakhkaramyan to Big Bear on a fishing trip. "He didn't even have a chance to say any last words," Shakhkaramyan's grieving brother, Sarkis, said Thursday, struggling to make sense of his brother's slaying. "I just don't understand. They gave them the money, and they shot them anyway. Armen was asleep, and then he was dead."
