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 [email protected], and we will do our best to respond.

What a senseless crime! Jonathon Fernandez was full of life, he "always" had a smile on his face. He was one of the nicest guys on earth. He was robbed short of his life and will be missed dearly by all.

Once again, a person is at a party and someone pulls a gun out, shoots someone and runs away. Please stop doing this? What elese can be done except tell the police what you know?

What a tragedy !!!!!! reading in th paper seemed like a really good ,
hardworking guy . any other news on why this would happen ?
Was it random or something else going on ?

Jonathan's passing leaves a heartbreaking void in the lives of his friends and family. I will forever remember his smile and good-natured attitude and outlook on life. God speed, Jonathan.

"Glenn Cox, 21, and two youths; a 17-year-old and a 15-year-old on suspicion of murder. "

Both of those juveniles should be charged as adults.

They knew exactly what would happen when a gun is fired at someone.
