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 firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will do our best to respond.

Keith Moore, a 20-year-old black man, died Saturday, Sept. 5 after he was shot several times in the 1500 block of West 55th Street in Harvard Park, officials said.
Moore was riding his bicycle when he was confronted by a man on foot who shot him multiple times, said Officer Sara Faden of the Los Angeles Police Department. Moore was left on the street and was later pronounced dead.
The shooter fled the scene and remains at large, Faden said.
