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.

Chaidez was shot in the early evening and taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead at 8:36 a.m. the next day, according to coroner's records.

Detectives said several juveniles were involved in Chaidez's killing, and that at least one arrest had been made. Because the case involves minors, authorities did not identify the suspects.

Officials with the Los Angeles County district attorney's office could not find a record of charges being filed in the case.

Police said the killing is possibly gang-related. All of the suspects are involved in a gang, and police said Chaidez was a suspected gang member.
