Fugitive ex-LAPD officer Henry Solis being brought back to California by Pomona police

POMONA, Calif. (KABC) -- Pomona detectives are heading to Texas on Tuesday to bring back former Los Angeles Police Department officer Henry Solis, who is accused in the shooting death of Salome Rodriguez Jr.

According to a federal affidavit, after a fight last March outside a bar in Pomona, Solis chased down Rodriguez and opened fire, killing him.

Henry Solis (left) was arrested in Mexico Tuesday, May 26, 2015 in connection to the murder of 23-year-old Salome Rodriguez Jr. (right).

Solis then fled to Mexico, where authorities arrested him last week. He was living with relatives in Juarez.

Solis was handed over to U.S. authorities, who were holding him in Texas.

However, Pomona police told Eyewitness News that detectives plan to bring Solis back to California either Wednesday or Thursday.
