Police arrived just before midnight to discover a body in an alley near the carport.
Jaime Alberto Viallacorta, a 24-year-old security guard in uniform, sustained at least one gunshot wound to his upper torso.
His father later told KTLA News that the guard feared for his life on the job because he did not carry a gun.
Police have no suspect in Viallacorta's slaying.
