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.

Darren Way, a 21-year-old black man, died on Sunday, Sept 20, after he was shot in the 10000 block of South Hobart Avenue in Gramercy Park, according to Los Angeles County coroner's officials.

Way, of Palmdale, was walking with his girlfriend when a car pulled up next to them and someone asked him: "Where are you from?" said Ed Winter, a spokesman for the coroner's office. The assailant then shot Way several times. He was pronounced dead at the scene at 11:01 p.m., Winter said.
