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.

Willowbrook: Luis Flores, 66

July 27, 2009 |  4:17 pm
Luis Flores, a 66-year-old Latino, was shot several times in the 2000 block of East El Segundo Boulevard in Willowbrook on July 25, according to Los Angeles County coroner's officials.

Flores, of Los Angeles, was killed on the sidewalk outside a residence known as a site for cockfights, according to a coroner’s official.

Sheriff's officials said Flores got into an argument with another man about 2:40 p.m.

"Apparently the argument escalated with both men producing handguns and they started shooting at each other," said  Deputy Derrick Thompson.

Flores died at the scene, authorities said. The suspect, who fled, is believed to have been injured in the gunfight.
