A gang member convicted in the June 2012 shooting death of a Compton youth minister in Venice was sentenced last Friday to 58 years to life in prison. Kevin Dwayne Green, 31, was convicted Feb. 20 along with Hopeton Parsley, 25, of first-degree murder for the June 4, 2012, killing of Oscar Duncan. Jurors also found true gang and gun allegations against both men, but were not asked to determine which of the two was the gunman.

Duncan was returning from dinner with his fiance when someone in a car cat-called the woman, according to Deputy District Attorney Eugene Hanrahan. Duncan was shot once in the face after approaching the car, from which someone shouted the name of a gang, Hanrahan said. The youth minister was not a gang member and had been actively involved in gang-intervention efforts, authorities said.

Parsley was sentenced last month to 90 years to life in prison. A third defendant, Nichole Sheran, 20, pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and is expected to be sentenced June 24 to 11 years in state prison, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
