Fired LAPD Officer Accused of Murder Fled to Texas

March 19, 2015  | 

A fugitive Los Angeles police officer fired and charged with murder fled to Texas with the help of his father, federal officials said in a warrant filed Thursday, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Henry Solis was able to evade authorities after the fatal March 13 shooting near a Pomona nightclub after his father drove him across state lines, FBI officials wrote in the warrant.

Before disappearing, Solis, who was fired this week, "made incriminating statements about his role in the murder of (Salome) Rodriguez" and said he would never be seen again, according to Special Agent Scott F. Garriola, in an affidavit.

After hurriedly leaving his home, Victor Solis, his pickup truck and his dog were seen in El Paso, Texas, at the home of a relative. Victor admitted to FBI agents that he drove his son to El Paso and dropped him off at a bus station, but he did not know his son's whereabouts.

Cmdr. Andrew Smith said LAPD officials hope Solis will "turn himself in as quickly as possible."
