A suspect remains at large after a security guard was shot and killed in South Los Angeles on Friday night.
The victim was identified on Saturday night as Francisco Alonzo 27, by the Los Angeles Police Department.
Authorities received reports of a shooting at a marijuana dispensary on the 6600 block of Crenshaw Boulevard in Hyde Park around 6:20 p.m.
Arriving officers found Alonzo suffering from multiple gunshot wounds inside the business. Medical treatment was provided, but the victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police believe Alonzo was “involved in a dispute with the suspect possibly during the commission of a robbery,” said LAPD.
Photos of the scene show shattered pieces of glass in the business’ front entrance and several evidence markers on a nearby sidewalk.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic man around 25 years old. He stands 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs around 175 pounds. He was last seen wearing a tan shirt and tan camo pants.
He was accompanied by two other Hispanic males, police said. The details leading up to the fatal shooting remain under investigation.
