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.

Now this is the third klling on 115th street in watts within a carr as well as rayshawn boyce 31 were both killed on the 1400 block of 115th mr bocye was killed on 12 12 09 I think....then go back to 11 22 09 on tha 1200 block of 115th lavell hudson 24 was killed.... three gerations of black men gone from the same street all within a month.. and the STATS DON'T LIE...THEY were more likely killed by other black men. I was over at hawkins house of burgers on imperial hwy right across from the nickerson gardens projects on Saturday when I overheard people talkin about how mr carr was killed the tha other night b4. I don't know what's going on but its reall messed up...... to have 3 generations of brothers killed like this. Hopefully those killers are swooped off the street

562vert, How do you know it was other black men?, Did you see them?, Maybe if you know so much, then maybe you should be the one calling the Police to help them with their investigation to get whoever did these killings off the streets. It amazes me how people like you could assume they know so much, and who did what, and don't even know. That's how rumors are started, and lives are lost, because people like you who start rumors. I think you should have read the facts of two of the killing when they were there, and you would have seen it was not black men who did that.

Its unfortunate for all these brothers to be killed possibly by other brothers. Man were just trying to make a living and survive nowadays we shouldnt have to deal with this either. Hope for safe holidays.

i was born and raised in los angeles. i have been liveing in new jersey for the past 10 yrs ..everytime t think i'am ready to come back home read homicide reports in the L A times and realize it's not time yet not to mention california has a governer who sucks and killed my state ...arnold you suck big time!!!!!!

what happened to the los angeles of old... people used to care about one another .i now live in woodbury new jersey but i really miss california .get it together cali the rest of the country is watching!!!!

Its too bad the LA Times no longer has the interactive map of all the homicides. I used to zoom in to certain parts of the city and look at the homicides listed over a couple of years.

It was shocking. Some areas are in all truth, killing zones.

Syscom3: I wanted to let you know that early next year we will relaunch The Homicide Report, preserving the look and functionality of the blog but integrating it fully with an interactive map and searchable database. This will allow readers to examine concentrations of homicides over the entire three years the report has existed -- something that was not possible with the old map -- as well as look for patterns involving race/ethnicity, age, day of the week, gender and more. I'll post more when we get closer to launch.

I was just over in the Nickersons & seen the memorial for this guy. I hope that the Nickersons aren't going back to what it used to be. There are just to many little kids walking around for all that.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Black folks killing other black folks is nothing new. They are killing each other for the same old reasons.....nothing.

I as a man of color can not begin to explain the anger, I feel when I hear another Black man is dead from gunshots!
Do we blame the person doing the killing, or the sorry family he/she comes from?
I grew up with the Lincoln Park Blood Gang in San Diego, CA..
Google us don't get it wrong homie, that hood is very respected...
But I say this to say that, we use to fight like men, even I got my tail kicked at times but I lived to fight another day..
Fighting helped build character, there is always somebody out there crazier than you!
Hell i can give my seven year son a gun, and he can shot me, but he can't get with me from the shoulders.
Anybody can shot somebody, But how many of you coward can get'em up?
At the end of the day, be it Blood or Cuzz, we are Black men and we all face the struggle. We can't bring back our dead homies, but we can make sure the ones that are alive stay alive!!!!

glenn carr is my uncle( my moms brother), and i miss his so much i didn't get to see him often after the age of 15, but i remember the things he did when you needed him he was right there he was there for his kids and was and still is a good man and uncle.

i hope and prey they find who did this to him and give them what they gave my uncle, i know god says turn the other cheek, but he also said an eye for an eye.

no one should have to feel this kind of pain or hear this has happen to their family so for me i will NEVER FORGIVE cause my heart doesn't work like that

People who can do something about all of the crime and hate are just sitting on their ASS eating donuts lookin at it all happen only in it for the fame WHERE'S arnold? at home not giving a rats ass living the life its all for fame

i would wish this would never happen to another person but thats like wishing my uncle was alive again :(

Big Ro619,
I respect what your saying. I grew up in the Encanto area not far from your hood. It's people like you that can make a difference and influence these youngsters to set goals and take steps in the right direction. Every little bit helps homie. One Love.

this was 100% black on black crime.The bounty hunter are fighting each other because of a robbery and everyone knows remember 107vermontside hard keep an ear to the street
