For the record, 6:51 p.m. July 27: Three of the four violent crimes reported in Mount Washington were incorrectly mapped by The Times’ crime database. The LAPD reported that two homicides and an aggravated assault occurred July 20 in the 2800 block of Future Street. The Times' system incorrectly placed those points a block north of their true location. The correct location is in Cypress Park, south of Future Street’s intersection with Isabel Street, the neighborhood's border with Mount Washington. With this change, Mount Washington no longer scores a crime alert.
