The 20-year-old San Pedro resident accused of shooting to death a rookie Monterey Park police officer made his first appearance in Downey Superior Court on Thursday, Aug. 11, but he did not enter a plea.

Carlos Daniel Delcid, who appeared wearing a mask to ward off the coronavirus and a jail jumpsuit, is behind bars and currently not eligible for bail.

Thursday’s hearing lasted about two minutes, with Delcid looking at the judge and the lawyers and not at those in the gallery, which included a half-dozen officers along with a dozen family members and supporters of the victim.

Gardiel Solorio, authorities say, was gunned down while off duty during a botched robbery attempt near a gym in a Downey parking lot. The 26-year-old was shot five times.

Delcid was charged with murder, attempted robbery and possession of a firearm by a felon.

The 17-year-old boy who was the get-away driver was also to be charged, the district attorney has said.

His arraignment, when he enters a pleas, was postponed until Sept. 8.

After the hearing, his court-appointed attorney declined to comment on the allegations Delcid faces.
