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.

The shooting happened after Hu walked into an employment agency and got into an argument with someone, said Ed Winter, a spokesman for the coroner's office.

That person pulled out a gun at shot Hu in the face, Winter said. The shooter is described in a Sheriff's Department news release as an Asian man.

Hu was shot about 9 p.m. and pronounced dead at the scene at 9:31 p.m., Winter said. Sheriff's homicide detectives are assisting Monterey Park police in the investigation. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call sheriff's homicide detectives at 323-890-5500.
