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.

Bryan Hollis, 23, a black man, was shot in the head at 1465 E. 114th St. in Watts at about 11:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 27, and died at 12:10 a.m. Aug. 28 at St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood. Another victim of this shooting, a 34-year-old black man, remains hospitalized in critical condition.
Hollis was standing with a group of friends inside the Nickerson Gardens housing project when shooters, who police believe were black men or youths, walked up to the group and fired several times into the crowd, then ran.
