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.

I know him
he is my cousin
after he got shot
he was taken to the hospital
and then died.
if u dont believe me well
would any random person know he was born on February 23 1992?

and you know died July 17 2009
his funeral was just on Saturday July 25 2009
does anyone else need anymore information?
or do u believe me.

Was he killed because of gang related violence?

Hey Lesly, you were the first to post a comment here, so who are you fighting with or who disagreed with you? and of course he died on July 17,2009 that what it says here so everyone knows that. And since you seem to have more info, yeah I would love for you to give us more on what led to the shooting. Was it gang related? Was it personal? Can you tell us what exactly happen.
