2 arrested in murder of Venice youth pastor: LAPD

Monday, June 11, 2012

Police said Monday that two people have been arrested in the murder of a Venice youth pastor.

Oscar Duncan, 23, was shot in the head in front of his mother's house on Santa Clara Avenue last Monday.

An LAPD spokesman confirmed the arrests Monday. Police planned to release further details later in the week, and said more arrests are possible.

Police believe the suspects were gang members, but say Duncan was not involved in gangs.

Duncan, known as "Choir Boy," was a well-known youth pastor, as well as the music studio director at the Boys and Girls Club in Venice.
