Henry Solis, 27, was arrested on May 26 by Mexican authorities in the border city of Juarez and was then deported to the United States, where he was booked into the El Paso County Jail.
Deputy Chief Michael Olivieri of the Pomona Police Department said PPD detectives traveled to Texas to escort Solis back to Southern California.
FBI officials said Solis had been staying with relatives in the Juarez area prior to his arrest. Special Agent Scott Garriola said Solis was “moved from one house to another” to help him avoid capture.
Federal authorities said Solis fled to Mexico with the help of his father, Victor, who was later arrested for allegedly lying to the FBI. Victor and Henry Solis were spotted by a security camera as they crossed the U.S.- Mexico border on March 14.
Henry Solis allegedly killed Salome Rodriguez Jr., 23, on March 3, while a probationary officer in the LAPD’s Devonshire Division in the San Fernando Valley. The former Marine was fired by the department following the shooting.
