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.

I cant even believe you are gone Kadeem. Smh. Your are really missed and loved out here. You wasn't even the one that banged all you wanted to do was play basketball and be here for your family and make people laugh. Im so glad i was able to meet you. I know you are in a better place and you don't ever have to watch over your back and have to live down here in hell. Its crazy because if you were to send these gang bangers to war they wouldn't last for nothing at all. These black young man need to be stick together and stop killing each other and turning their backs on one another. Its so sad how its cowards on these streets. They are taking all the good ones away from us. And you are these gang bangers to take someone else life. If you didn't bring them here what in the hell thinks you can take them away. You aren't GOD at all. One thing these so called gang bangers have to remember at the end of the day you have to answer to GOD not your hood so next time you want to pull a gun on somebody remember and take their life remember.Thou shall not kill.
May Your Soul Rest In Peace Kadeem
