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.

Man, that's where my favorite taco truck (El Chato) parks. I always thought that area was safe. I guess gang violence can go anywhere...

I live in the building next to the auto shop right at the corner of La Brea and Redondo Blvd., and heard the gunshots, it was really scary. At 2:37 p.m. in the afternoon on a Sunday in a very quiet safe neighborhood, you don't think there is going to be a gang-related shooting. This goes to show you that gang violence can happen anywhere, even if you think your neighborhood is safe. I have lived there three years, and this is the first violent act that has happened since I have been living there.

It makes me afraid to go out for a walk, or take my dog for a walk because you could be an innocent bystander who gets shot by one of the bullets that wasn't even met for you, you were just in the wrong place at the wrong time, in your own neighborhood.


my heart goes out to this young man's young to lose his life.

My heart goes out to no one. Sorry, but people don't go around shooting people for no reason. And if people say, "Oh...he wasn't a gangbanger." So many youngsters run around looking like gangsters. To all you wannabe's: pull your pants up, get clothes that aren't 5X, and grow your hair out. run around looking like that, you should know better.

I agree with christian
