Kevin Dwayne Green to Face Trial in Murder of Oscar “Choir Boy” Duncan

Reporter Paul Chavez recently left America Online’s Patch. He now has his own website, aptly named The Venice Dispatch (click here to add it on Twitter and here to add on Facebook). Congrats on having your own site Paul!

From The Venice Dispatch:

A judge ruled Thursday that there was enough evidence for a suspected gang member to face trial on a murder charge for the shooting death of 23-year-old Venice youth pastor Oscar Duncan.

Oscar Duncan

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Cynthia Rayvis ordered Kevin Dwayne Green, 29, to return to court Oct. 25 for arraignment and kept his bail at $2 million.

Duncan was fatally shot once in the head June 4 about 10:30 p.m. in the 600 block of Santa Clara Avenue outside his home.

(Duncan’s girlfriend) testified that Duncan parked his car June 4 and she was walking up the porch when a white, four-door car pulled up. The front passenger in the car jeered at her, “Hey sexy what’s up?” She said she ignored the comment and the passenger followed up by saying, “Hey bitch.’ He then asked Duncan, “Hey cuz is that your bitch?” and Duncan turned around, asked who they are and walked toward the car, she said.

Jiles said the passenger replied, “This is Shoreline Crips, cuz.” Duncan then told the man not to worry and that he lived there, Jiles said.

“As soon as (Duncan) said it, he shot him,” she said.
