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.

Dominique Johnson, a 28-year-old black man, was shot and killed July 5 in the 1300 block of North Tamarind Avenue in Compton, according to the Los Angeles County coroner's office.

Johnson, of Lynwood, was sitting in a car with his girlfriend about midnight when another car pulled up and someone fired several shots at them, said Ed Winter, a spokesman for the coroner's office.

Johnson was taken to a hospital, where he died 23 minutes later, Winter said.
