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.

North Hollywood: Gombert Yepremyan, 19

November 30, 2009 |  5:24 pm

YepremynGombert Yepremyan, a 19-year-old man identified by coroner's officials as Armenian, was shot and killed Wednesday, Nov. 18, in the 6400 block of North Laurel Canyon Boulevard near Victory Boulevard in North Hollywood, authorities said.

Yepremyan was shot in the neck by an acquaintance just before 9 p.m. in the parking lot of a Sears store, authorities said.

Yepremyan was taken to a hospital where he later died, said Officer Norma Eisenman of the Los Angeles Police Department.

Police determined that earlier that evening Yepremyan had been involved in a dispute with another man that took place via telephone, Eisenman said.

“Both parties agreed to meet to settle whatever their differences were,” Eisenman said.

They met in the parking lot, where the altercation occurred. The suspect pulled out a semiautomatic handgun and shot the victim, Eisenman said.

The suspect fled in a black four-door BMW 3-Series sedan with no plates, Eisenman said.

Anyone with information is asked to call (877) 527-3247.
