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 [email protected], and we will do our best to respond.

Rayshawn Boyce, a 31-year-old black man, was shot and killed Saturday, Dec. 12, in the 1400 block of East 115th Street in Watts, according to Los Angeles County coroner's officials.

Boyce was shot during what Craig Harvey, chief coroner investigator, described as a walk-up altercation about 7:45 p.m. Boyce was standing on the sidewalk when someone got out of a vehicle, walked up, and shot him, Harvey said.

He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead at 8:22 p.m., Harvey said.

ther was just a nother shooting last knight on the same street another yung man was killd when will the kiling STOP

What ever happened to settling any beefs with a fist fight. If you got ur a$$ kicked or you kicked someone's a$$, that was the end of it. Now, people r just pulling out guns and shooting eachother over the smallest things. People need to realize when u take someone's life, that's permanent. There r serious consequences. I spent 18 years in prison for doing that. I know that one day, I will pay for what I did then even though I did hard time. I am sure I will meet the same fate that met my victims fate over 18 years ago. So be it. I'm ready. All u youngsters, please....think before you act out of rage. It ain't worth it.

I was at the burger stand today on slater and imperial highway...I heard people talking about another killing on Thursday night..its so new...its not even on HR report yet..Im always by the Nickerson Gardens..man...Im every from Long Beach to South Central to Inglewood...im out here in these streets and people are getting killed in the same spots...man...its scarey cus it could be me next

I must say Rayshawn did not deserve to die like an animal in the streets now my son has no father. I grew up in Watts/Compton and believe me I never saw this coming. I will always love him and thanks to the lord I have him in my son. Remember this you live by the gun you shall die by the gun.

Is that what you really want foclipz? why do you even hang out in those places? Nothing to do? Do you have a death wish or something? Why?

I am from the East coast--Philly to be exact--and I have visited the West coast several times. I love it out there but believe the violence is on this side too. We do not have the gang culture on the East coast--so for me to see it out there was something very new. I hope that we can stop ending each others lives on the spot--East coast and West coast---CHILL!!

actually, Outraged, they do make a preety great burger...

ANY COWARD CAN SHOOT SOMEONE. YOU WERE TO AFRAID OF GETTING YOUR ASS KICKED SO YOU HAD TO PULL OUT A GUN. I WISH YOUR MOTHER WOULD HAVE TAUGHT YOU BETTER YOU GOOD FOR NOTHING LOSER. IF YOU DONT LIKE SOMEONE YOU JUST DONT DEAL WITH THEM YOU DONT KILL THEM. THE PERSON THAT DID THIS WILL PAY
