A man pointing guns at cars brought the Santa Monica Police to Kansas Ave and Cloverfield on Wednesday evening, January 18, 2023. The man ran from officers as they arrived at about 9:25 pm.
The suspect, later identified as Andres Isaac Solorio, jumped the fence to an enclosed and secured patio of an apartment in the 2500 block of Kansas Ave. Officers heard residents of the units, yelling for help. Solorio then jumped back into the breezeway and fled on foot into the subterranean carport where he was taken into custody by the officers, says Lt. Rudy Flores of the SMPD.
SMPD Officers located a loaded black semi-automatic un-serialized handgun ("Ghostgun") in the patio area where Solorio was previously at. Solorio, a 29-year-old male from Santa Monica, was booked at the SMPD Jail. On January 20, 2023, the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office – Airport Division filed one count of Assault with a Deadly Weapon and Felon in Possession of a Loaded Firearm against Solorio.
Anyone with any additional information pertaining to this subject or incident is strongly encouraged to contact SMPD Detective Kayondo at 310-458- 8495 or the Watch Commander (24 hours) at 310- 458-8426.
