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.

Jason Grey, a 29-year-old Latino man, was shot and killed in Forest Lawn Cemetery in Glendale at about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 1. LAPD officers with the Northeast Division responded to a shots-fired call in the area, but later learned that the shooting had taken place inside the cemetery. Glendale police and paramedics, who also responded, were on the scene shortly before LAPD arrived. The cemetery, at 1712 S. Glendale Ave., straddles the cities of Glendale and Los Angeles. This is the first homicide of the new year for Los Angeles and is being ruled as gang-related, according to Det. Percy (Pjai) Morris. More details in the Los Angeles Times.
