A man who allegedly shot an off-duty California cop during an attempted carjacking and his teenage getaway driver have been arrested, the district attorney’s office announced Wednesday.

Carlos Daniel Delcid, 20, has been charged murder, attempted robbery and possession of a firearm by a felon in the shooting death of 26-year-old Monterey Park Police Officer Gardiel Solorio, according to Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón.

Solorio had just pulled into a Downey parking lot when Delcid got out of his car and demanded the off-duty officer hand over his belongings, according to police.

When Solorio tried to drive off, Delcid allegedly shot him five times. The officer was pronounced dead at the scene.

“Gardiel was just starting his career in law enforcement and was a rising star who took pride in serving one of our communities when he was tragically murdered,” Gascón said in a statement Wednesday. “Senseless gun violence has once again taken someone who pledged to protect others.”
