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 homicidereport@latimes.com, and we will do our best to respond.

Wei_jason Jason Wei, 42, an Asian American man, was killed by gunfire during a restaurant robbery at 815 W. Naomi St. in Arcadia at about 9:24 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 25. Arcadia police Lt. Larry Goodman said a Latino suspect dressed in dark clothing with a dark beanie came into the Osaka Ya sushi restaurant, where Wei worked, and took money from the cash register. The restaurant was still open; a few customers and other employees were inside. Goodman said they offered no resistance, and the suspect simply shot Wei for unknown reasons and fled. Wei was taken to nearby Methodist Hospital, where he died. Arcadia police are looking for information on this case. Det. John Bonoma is at (626) 574-5166.

Please see previous post for a video-still of Wei's killer, who is still at a large.

Jason,
you will not be forgotten my man. we will be strong for you. may your killer find his own justice at the hands of God. WE LOVE YOU!

Really do not understand why there is just so much violence in the world today. Human beings that are just beginning to experience the beauty of life are being taken away by ignorance. Sad for the families.

We all must stop the killing,my friend rest in peace.

Jason is in our hearts forever. We love you Susan! Be strong you have our support!
