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.

what's going on in this world. im so sorry for all of this crime in this world ,my heart go to this young man people. brother stabbing brother to death,mother killing there kids. people just killing becouse they can they take life in to there own hand. what can be done to stop all of this killing. you would think the death penlaty would put fear in people they dont even fear that. what will it take stop all of this.

This even more convinces me there is a God. That all the animals of the earth were given those inherent skills for the care of their own. Except for mankind. We have no reasoning skills to instinctively provide care and protection of our own. No more than one could expect from one human being towards another. Otherwise there wouldn't be so much dying at the hands of another in this world.
I believe That's why he created us last and gave us instructions.. the creatures didn't need any they were given those skills.
No...killers have never had any real nurturing or caring love to understand why it's so wrong to act so savagely and care less about taking someones life.
Take one look at society, many people are numb to the violence and fail to see that all people need is caring and love which is provided for some but lies so far away for others.
I pray for the loss of someone's loved one.

I wonder if this has somthing to do with the hoover crimminals vs main street beef

This has nothing to do w/ no gang banging. Reggie was not a gang member, he was a hustla on the grind just like all of us. He did things legitimately and the original post on LATIMES about his case had the facts totally wrong. Reggie was just at the wrong place at the wrong time and taken out by some punks. He was guilty of being a black man, in the hood, tryna make it... and fools w/ no regard to life having to resolve their issues w/ guns chose to be cowards... now his family, his friends who love him and knew him weep over this BS, like so many others who have experienced these type of tragedys. To hell w/ all this gang bangin BS! Hell Blacks & Browns are pretty much an endangered species! Whats even more ridiculous is they the main ones TOO blind to see it! F a Thug!

Cece (thats my name)

that is swan blood hood not hoover hood

well the Hoover and Main streets are gettin at it pretty any black guy could get smoked...just because of that beef....or...somebody just killed him cus they felt like it...they shot him in broad daylight. I drove past here last week a couple of times to see what it looks like at 9 am...put it this way...I didnt see any cops one day..and the next a saw a motorcycle the killers are free to roam pretty much

this isn't over blood or crip reginald was killed by a store clerk? reginald went to a store on 74th and broadway to buy some minutes for his phone. some kind of way he and the store clerk got into a confortation.reginald left the store ,the store clerk change his clothes jump in a different car followed reginald and meet up with him and shot him. that what had happen ,people get on here telling lies only one's that know is people that be around him.

black man, you seem to know a lot about this crime. Have you told the police what you know?

Its no secret what happened to Reggie @ this point. It was actually 3 people involved in this. I say 3 cuz there was a woman that drove the two guys to ultimately murder him. Reggie was a smart, talented person whom was overwhelmingly loved. He was into his money and music. He was the most down to earth person one could ever know. I never really knew him to have beef w/ anybody cause he was just that laid back... My heart tuly goes out to his son,,
