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.

East Los Angeles: Anthony Torres, 33

October 14, 2009 |  2:15 pm

The location where Torres was shot. Anthony Torres, a 33-year-old Latino, was shot and killed  Sunday, Oct. 11, in the 5900 block of East Northside Drive in East Los Angeles, authorities said.

Torres was with two friends in the front yard of an apartment complex about 10:45 p.m. when a fight erupted between them and several other people, said Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Det. Philip Guzman.

Someone pulled out a gun and shot Torres in the neck and chest, according to coroner's records. Torres was pronounced dead at the scene at 11:25 p.m., according to coroner's records.

His two companions were also shot and seriously injured in the attack, but they are expected to survive, Guzman said.

Police do not know what prompted the fight, but Guzman said the motive in the attack could be gang related.

Guzman said Torres and the other two victims were known members of the Varrio Neuvo Estrada street gang. He said he did not know if the assailants, who fled the scene, were gang members.

Police are still working to identify them, Guzman said. Anyone with information about this killing is asked to call Sheriff's homicide detectives at (323) 890-5500.

DEDICATION: (ALICIA KEYS LIKE YOULL NEVER SEE ME AGAIN)

If I had no more time
No more time left to be here
Would you cherish what we had?
Was it everything that you were looking for?
If I couldn't feel your touch
And no longer were you with me
I'd be wishing you were here
To be everything that I'd be looking for
I don't wanna forget the present is a gift
And I don't wanna take for granted the time you may have here with me
'Cause Lord only knows another day is not really guaranteed

So every time you hold me
Hold me like this is the last time
Every time you kiss me
Kiss me like you'll never see me again
Every time you touch me
Touch me like this is the last time
Promise that you'll love me
Love me like you'll never see me again

Oh Oh Oh

How many really know what love is?
Millions never will
Do you know until you lose it
That it's everything that we are looking for
When I wake up in the morning
You're beside me
I'm so thankful that I found
Everything that I been looking for

I don't wanna forget the present is a gift
And I don't wanna take for granted the time you may have here with me
'Cause Lord only knows another day is not really guaranteed

So everytime you hold me
Hold me like this is the last time
Every time you kiss me
Kiss me like you'll never see me again
(can you do that for me baby)
Every time you touch me
(see we don't really know)
Touch me like this is the last time
(see everyday we never know)
Promise that you'll love me
(I want you to promise me)
Love me like you'll never see me again
(like you'll never see me again)

This feeling is unbearable ,

I need you now more then ever,
With out you i think

Everday, everynight i see you
In my dreams which slowly turn to nightmares
As i watch as you dissapear once again

I know now we wont be together forever
But baby i miss you
And without you i am nothing

One day soon i hope you remeber the love deep down
Which will never fade like i will
But whenever you think of me i am here for you

For i am always dreaming of you ...
