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 homicidereport@latimes.com, and we will do our best to respond.

Chavez was attending his 25th birthday party when he got into an argument with a man who allegedly shot and killed him, Los Angeles police said. Chavez was shot about 2:30 a.m. and taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead at 3:13 a.m., according to coroner's records.

Parrish Najarro, a 26-year-old black man who authorities said is a friend of Chavez’s girlfriend’s ex-husband, has been arrested and charged with Chavez's murder, according to the felony complaint filed by the district attorney's office.
