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.

He was confronted by at least one attacker who opened fire about 3:30 p.m. No arrests have been made, the LAPD said.

The Los Angeles Unified School District sent a memo to teachers in Venice, alerting them about the shooting deaths of two former students on Nov. 3 and asking them to watch for any suspicious activity. The memo said McKillian attended Venice High for a short period.
