Soliz Scheduled to be in Court

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Tommy Soliz, a suspected gang member accused of shooting at his girlfriend, is scheduled to be arraigned in Yakima County court Tuesday morning.

Soliz evaded Yakima police for about a month before he was caught by the gang unit last week. On September 12th, a SWAT team surrounded a home on 18th Avenue in search of Soliz after his girlfriend told police he fired a gun at her. Soliz was able to escape from the home before the teams set up.

He is facing charges of first-degree assault. Police say Soliz has gang ties.
