A Gardena man was charged Thursday with killing a South Los Angeles barber during a robbery earlier this year.
Mark Lequan Alford, 35, is charged with one count of murder with the special circumstances of a robbery, and with using a gun.
Alford is being held on $1-million bail.
Prosecutors say Alford shot Kevin Williams, 32, to death April 25 at a barbershop in the 6500 block of South Western Avenue in Harvard Park.
Alford and a second man went into Western Hair Lounge and robbed Williams, and when he resisted, Alford killed him with a single gunshot, prosecutors allege.
The two men reportedly fled and Williams died later at a local hospital.
If convicted, Alford could face the death penalty.
