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.

April 23, 2009 |  8:01 pm

Ezra Davis, a 15-year-old black male, was shot in the upper body on Saturday, January 31, 2009, in the 800 block of Washington Place in Long Beach, according to the Los Angeles County coroner's office.

Police responded to a call that shots had been fired at 12:04 p.m., and discovered him lying on the sidewalk wounded, according to Long Beach Police Department records. Ezra was taken to a hospital, where he died, police said.

[An earlier version of this post incorrectly reported that Ezra was shot on March 31, 2009.]

With the crime rate in LA, the Times could have made the typo: "15 Youths Shot," and nobody would have noticed.
