A 27-year-old former LAPD officer wanted for the murder of a 23-year old man in a bar fight in Pomona, CA later fled to Mexico and was arrested last week by Mexican police. Henry Solis, a former U.S. Marine, was hiding out in Juarez, Mexico with family members.

It should be noted that when Solis reportedly chased, open-fired and killed the man, he was still an LAPD officer. When he fled to Mexico, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck fired him, causing him "a dishonor to the organization."

The FBI had issued a $25,000 reward for information leading to his capture. They also pointed out that "Solis is a former police officer and a former Marine" and that he "SHOULD BE CONSIDERED ARMED AND DANGEROUS AND A SUICIDE RISK." Excerpt from their press release:

Occupation: Solis is a former police officer and a former Marine. Solis may be wearing a full beard. Solis has ties to Juarez, Mexico. He may currently be in Texas. Solis may be in possession of weapons.
CAUTION - Henry Solis is wanted for his alleged involvement in the murder of a man in the downtown district of Pomona, California, on March 13, 2015. In the early morning hours of March 13, 2015, Solis and the victim became involved in a physical altercation in downtown Pomona. Solis allegedly pursued the victim on foot and shot him multiple times, killing him. On March 17, 2015, the Superior Court of the State of California, County of Los Angeles, obtained a warrant for Solis' arrest for murder. On March 19, 2015, a federal arrest warrant was issued by the United States District Court, Central District of California, Los Angeles, California, after Solis was charged federally with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

ABC 7 Eyewitness News reports:

"Former LAPD officer Henry Solis, who is wanted in connection to the March murder of Salome Rodriguez Jr. in Pomona, has been arrested in Mexico, Eyewitness News has learned. Solis was captured by Mexican security forces in the border city of Ciudad Juarez, the Chihuahua State Attorney General's Office said. Mexican officials said he was living among his relatives in Juarez. They said he resisted arrest, but no gunshots were fired during his capture.

...Solis was deported to El Paso, Texas, Tuesday night and was expected to be in court the following morning. He faces charges for murder and unlawful flight to avoid prosecution, FBI officials said. Investigators believe Solis, 27, got into a fistfight with Rodriguez that escalated into a fatal shooting in the area of Third and Main streets in Pomona on March 13. Rodriguez was found with gunshot wounds to the lower torso and later died. Solis' father, Victor, was arrested on March 26 for allegedly lying to the FBI after helping his son cross the border to Juarez, Mexico. Surveillance video obtained from the border crossing shows Henry and Victor Solis both crossing the border at about 5:40 a.m. on March 14."
