A 29-year-old Venice Shoreline Crips gang member has been arrested and charged with killing a traffic guard at a Venice construction site last summer, due to his past ties to The Avenues, authorities said.

Witnesses described the gunman as wearing a black mask resembling something out of a movie, compounding the intrigue.Gregory Wherry was taken into custody last week and formally charged Monday with the Aug. 3 fatal shooting of Marvin Ponce in the Oakwood section of Venice, according to a spokesman for the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office.
