A Paramount man was in custody Wednesday on suspicion of killing a uniformed security guard who was gunned down outside the unlicensed marijuana dispensary in Inglewood where he worked.

Adhan Rasheed Clark, 25, was ordered to be held in lieu of $3.04 million bail while awaiting arraignment May 2 on a murder charge stemming from the April 11 slaying of Enrique Alvarado, along with one count of possession of firearm by a felon.

The criminal complaint includes gun and gang allegations, and alleges that Clark has a 2012 conviction for grand theft.

He was arrested Monday in the San Pedro area in connection with Alvarado’s killing, according to Inglewood Police Department Capt. Mark Fried.

Officers responded to a radio call of a victim down in a parking lot in the 11000 block of South Crenshaw Boulevard about 12:40 p.m. and found Alvarado suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, the police captain said.

Paramedics took the 22-year-old guard to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Fried said.
