Herman Curry, 16 YO Alexander Kamara and Suspected Gunman Sheldon Olge Killed at Wilmington Soccer Tournament

JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL:  Three dead, including a teenager, as gun fire erupts at the Marcus Garvey Soccer Tournament at Eden Park in Wilmington, DE, Sunday.

Spectators Herman Curry, 47, of New Castle and 16 year old Alexander Kamara of Pike Creek, were shot and later died in the hospital from their injuries. Police identified one of the suspects, Sheldon Olge, 43, who was killed when spectators returned fire.

Otis Phillips, 34, of New Castle, and Jeffrey Phillips, 22, of Wilmington, have been arrested in connection with the shooting. Both men were charged with two counts of first-degree murder, one count of first degree attempted murder, conspiracy and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Kevin Dwayne Green and Hopeton Bereford Parsley Arrested in the Shooting Death of Venice Youth Pastor Oscar Duncan

Kevin Dwayne Green and Hopeton Bereford Parsley were arrested in connection with the shooting death of Venice youth pastor Oscar Duncan. Kevin Green, 28, is currently being held without bail, while Hopeton Bereford Parsley, 22, is being held on $1 million, the L.A. Weekly reports.

Police believe that about four males drove up in a white car last week and jeered at Duncan’s girlfriend as the two were standing on a Venice street. Authorities say the assailants shouted a gang name as one of them fired a single shot, striking Duncan in the head.

Duncan, 23, was homecoming king and football captain at Venice High School and a youth minister for his Compton church. Police had said they believe the act was random. Duncan was not part of a gang and had no criminal record, authorities said. The attackers, however, were believed to have been gang members. Source

There are too many guns on the streets and in the hands of the wrong people. Oscar Duncan had so much to offer and his life was taken away. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
