Suspected gang member Kevin Dwayne Green, 28, who is also known by the nickname "Baby Skull," has been charged with the murder of a youth minister who was shot point blank in the head on a Venice street.Green is thought to have been one of a group of men who drove up to the 23-year-old victim, Oscar Duncan, who was standing on the street with his girlfriend. "Authorities say the assailants shouted a gang name as one of them fired a single shot," which struck Duncan in the head, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.

In addition to the murder charge (with gun use and street gang allegations), Green was charged today with a separate count of second degree robbery that allegedly occurred on May 21, and with one count of felon in possession of a firearm.

Duncan, whose nickname was "Choir Boy," was on his way home from a Bible study when he was killed. The victim was not a gang member, rather, Duncan was involved in gang intervention in addition to being a youth minister.

If convicted, Green faces a minimum of 50 years to life in prison.
