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.

The location of David Sua's killing.David Sua, a 37-year-old Latino, was shot in the chest and died Thursday, Aug. 13 at Rimgrove Drive and Samgerry Drive in unincorporated Los Angeles, according to Los Angeles County coroner's officials.

The incident, which police are calling a murder-suicide, was reported about 8:33 p.m.

Sua was driving to dinner with his family when a man threw a beer can at their car, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department investigators said. When Sua climbed out of the car and confronted the man, an argument erupted and the man pulled a handgun and shot Sua, then turned the gun on himself, investigators said.

Both men were pronounced dead at the scene by fire paramedics. The name of the gunman was not released, pending notification of his family, said Ed Winter, spokesman for the Los Angeles County coroner’s office.
