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.

San Dimas: Trayvon Earl Jeffers, 28

July 6, 2009 |  4:23 pm

Trayvon Earl Jeffers, a 28-year-old black man, was shot several times in the 100 block of Puddingstone Drive in Frank G. Bonelli Park in San Dimas. He died on Saturday, June 6, according to the Los Angeles County coroner's office.

Jeffers got into an argument with a group of men at the boat launch in the park, and he was found with several gunshot wounds on the north shore of the picnic area, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

He was shot about 6:20 p.m. and pronounced dead on arrival at a hospital at 7:04 p.m., said Ed Winter, a spokesman for the coroner's office.

Updated Dec. 7: The Times' Sarah Ardalani has a dispatch on Jeffers' life and death, part of an interactive project on gang intervention work by Homeboys Industries, where Jeffers was employed at the time of his death. Read her report: "My son's death was senseless and selfish" and learn more about the work he was doing at Alabama Homeboys.
