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.

How many people from tragniew park compton crips got killed overthere? I'm not saying he was from there but I wouldn't live overthere for nothing

How does where you live validate you being a victim of homicide? Homicide happens from the top of the hill to the bottom of the hood. That includes Compton and Beverly Hills. There are more people in the Traignew Park area living than those who have been killed. No, Jimmie was NOT a gang member. I've known him all 32 years of his life. Who's to say that gang members killed him? All murderers are not gang members and all gang members are not murderers. We don't know why Jimmie was killed but it damn sure wasn't because he was bangin'. RUMOR CONTROL: It was not a driveby. The gunman came up on Jimmie and the other two and began shooting. We all need to "Get Involved By Choice Not Force".

First of all of course there are more people still alive that's from overthere.....and who used the word all? Your the only person used the word all. Know if you knew the stats about shootings you would know that the gangbangers are doing the most shootings....he more likely got killed by a banger thinking he was from Tragniew park...... now I'm in the hood myself..... here in long beach......I'm not turning 27 by luck next week. I know not to stand in the hood at the park at 1200 just don't do that. If your in the hood that's where your from in the eyes of the dumb ass shooter. Tons of these men got killed just by sombody thinking he was from the "other side" . And as for your question... ain't now shooting goin on in the good areas.... now a broken clock is right two times a day but its still a broken clock. Shooting is going down in our hoods if u didn't know cpt south central athens watts huniton park canoga park east la carson downey norwalk pomana palmdal lancaster westlake look at the freakin cites and areas that's the hood areas for us blacks...and the browns ..... so if u stand in tragniew park hood at 1200 am minding your own bizz and if you stand at a park in redondo beach at 12000 am whos gona get shot first? Please don't act like your 10 years old and don't know what goes down in the the hood.
