On Monday, Jan. 25, 2010, The Times launched a new version of the Homicide Report. You have arrived at the old blog.
Readers can no longer post new comments on this site, but we encourage you to join the conversation on our new site. The updated Homicide Report features an interactive map and searchable database of the more than 2,600 homicides in L.A. County since January 2007, when Times' reporter Jill Leovy first started this blog with the goal of covering each one.
Comments prior to Jan. 26 will, at least for now, remain archived here, with links provided in the new database.
If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will do our best to respond.

Jayvon Brister, 18, a black man, was shot multiple times at Century Boulevard and Denver Avenue just west of the Harbor Freeway about 8:20 p.m. Monday, July 30. He died at 8:57 p.m.
He and a companion, a 21-year-old black man, were on a bicyle, one on the handlebars, said LAPD Det. Mark Hahn. They were attacked by drive-by or walk-up shooters. The two victims ran and made it not quite a block. Brister had a chest wound and later died at a hospital. His companion was shot in the hand and survived.
