Police search for killer of popular Venice youth minister known as 'Choir Boy'

23-year-old Oscar Duncan was a youth pastor at Greater Zion Church Family in Compton, member of Boys and Girls Club since he was 6 years old, an up-and-coming gospel singer and captain of his high school football team. In 2006 he was voted “Youth of the Year”.  NBC Southern California reported that on Monday night Duncan, who everyone called “Choir Boy” was shot by an unidentified gunman in Venice.  Members of his community are still in shock at the loss of a young man who had so much potential.

Police are searching for a gunman who killed a popular 23-year-old youth minister with a shot to his head in Venice Monday night.

The victim — a well-known community presence who was nicknamed “Choir Boy” — was in front of his family’s home when men in an older-model white car drove up, exchanged words with him, and then shot him, according to Lt. Marco Munoz of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Pacific Station.

LAPD detectives said the victim is Oscar Duncan — a Venice resident who was a youth pastor at Greater Zion Church Family in Compton.

Duncan was also a core presence at the Boys & Girls Club in Venice, where he had been a member since he was 6 years old and was about to be hired as a full-time staff employee, Executive Director Erikk Aldridge said. Duncan had been named “Youth of the Year” at the club in 2006.
