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.

Los Angeles Police Det. DeWayne Fields said a neighbor heard a gunshot, looked outside and saw Morales running. He ran about the length of two houses and collapsed. Morales was shot about 8:40 p.m. and pronounced dead at 8:48 p.m., according to coroner's records.

Fields said a white car was seen speeding away, but detectives are unsure if the car had anything to do with the shooting. Fields said detectives have no witnesses and no suspects in the killing.

Morales had no gang ties, and detectives do not believe this was a gang killing.
