Bail for a former LAPD officer who allegedly killed a man outside a Pomona nightclub and then fled to Mexico before being captured has been raised to $10 million.

Henry Solis, 27, is charged with murder, assault with a firearm and an allegation he discharged a handgun in the March 13 death of 23-year-old Salome Rodriguez Jr. outside a bar in Pomona. His arraignment is scheduled for June 30.

Los Angeles County prosecutors successfully requested Tuesday that Solis’ bail be raised from $2 million, citing his ability to hide in Texas and Mexico with the alleged help of family.
