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, and we will do our best to respond.

Harbor area: Man dies in shooting

November 6, 2008 |  6:44 pm

Eric Perez, a 26-year-old Latino, died in a double shooting in the 1000 block of Lagoon Avenue at 1:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 1.

When police arrived, they found two male victims bleeding from gunshot wounds. Witnesses told police that two men driving a Honda sedan pulled up, and one man got out and fired several shots.

Both victims were taken to a hospital, where Perez died at 6:15 a.m. from a wound to his upper torso. The second victim, whose name was not released, was treated for a non-life-threatening injury. The shooting was believed to be gang-related.

Hey i was a friend of eric and i use to talk to him every now and then. He was a very funny person he always found a way to make me laugh, and helped me get through so much. Even though i only talked to him for about 3 to 4 months but it felt like a life time. I really miss him a lot and wish he was still around. I ray t God and to him every night and i hope that his parents,his brothers, and his son find a way to get through this loss.
