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.

Pedro Xochipa, a 21-year-old Latino, was shot in the head July 4 in the 3400 block of Eagle Street in Boyle Heights and died the next day, according to the Los Angeles County coroner's office.

Xochipa was attending a Fourth of July party when there was an argument and confrontation, said Ed Winter, a spokesman for the coroner's office. Xochipa was shot during the argument, and the suspect fled the scene, Winter said.

The argument and shooting happened about 11:30 p.m., and Xochipa was pronounced dead at the hospital at 1:30 a.m.  July 5.
