A grieving community is baffled at how one of its most beloved young leaders could have been shot and killed.

23-year-old Oscar Duncan, whose nickname as a singer was ‘Choir Boy,’ was shot in his upper body Monday by four men who drove up in a car in Venice, Calif., the Los Angeles Times reports. Investigators believe the attackers were jeering at Duncan’s girlfriend before firing the single shot.

Duncan was a youth minister at the Greater Zion Church Family in Compton and a mentor at the Boys & Girls Club in Venice, NBC reports. He had been member of the club since he was six, was named “Youth of the Year” in 2006, and was about to become a full-time member of the staff.

Police are as baffled about the motive of the shooting as the community is. Duncan had no gang affiliation and well-loved, ABC reports.
