Wanted ex-LAPD officer caught in Mexico, brought back to U.S.

solis-el-paso-grab.jpgHenry Solis, the LAPD rookie officer who was suspected in an off-duty killing outside a bar in Pomona in March, was arrested in Ciudad Juarez and handed over to the FBI at the border. He is the fugitive whose father is suspected of driving him to El Paso so he could cross into Mexico. The father has been charged with helping Solis get away.

The LAPD fired Solis shortly after he did not show up for work following the March 13 shooting of Salome Rodriguez Jr., 23.

KCAL 9 video shows Solis being handed over to U.S. authorities in El Paso, where he is now being held.
