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.

Claudia Marroquin, a 23-year-old white woman, was shot and killed Sunday, Nov. 1, in the 400 block of Edgewood Street in Inglewood, authorities said.

Marroquin and Antonio Tavarez, a 25-year-old Latino, were standing with a small group of people outside a home when shots were fired from a passing car, said Inglewood Police Sgt. Mike Bolliger. Tavarez was struck in the head, and Marroquin was hit in the chest.

Bolliger said the suspect or suspects fired randomly into the group. The victims were taken to separate local hospitals, where they died.

Bolliger said detectives believe the shooting was gang-related. He asked that anyone with information about the killings call the department’s homicide detectives at (310) 412-5246.
