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.

Unicorporated South Los Angeles: Man, 21, shot after argument

February 8, 2009 |  6:43 pm

Joshawa Caldwell, a 21-year-old black man, was shot while standing in the 1300 block of 109th Place in unincorporated South L.A., shortly before 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 27, 2008, authorities said.

Caldwell was standing on the sidewalk with two other men when a dark car pulled up, according to detectives with the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.

Three male Latinos in the car got into an argument with Caldwell, and one man shot him once in the upper torso. The men fled east on 109th Place, sheriff's officials said.

Caldwell was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the sheriff's Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.
