Hundreds Honor Fallen Deputy Joseph Solano at Our Lady of the Angels Cathedral

Location

Alhambra , CA

Hundreds of law enforcement officers and political leaders joined the family and friends of Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Joseph Solano at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in downtown Los Angeles Monday morning to honor the fallen deputy who was shot in Alhambra on June 10.

Solano, 50, a 13-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Department, was off duty and dressed in civilian clothes when he was shot in the head apparently at random at the Jack in the Box restaurant on Valley Boulevard. Rushed to L.A.County/USC Medical Center, Solano died two days later after being taken off life support.

Speakers at the funeral included Solano’s son, Matthew, and Solano’s longtime girlfriend Juliana Loza who recalled him as a “One of a kind man who took care of others before himself.”

Members of the Alhambra Police Department honor guard attended the service. Alhambra Police and Fire units were the first responders to the Jack in the Box on the June 10 shooting.

Following the funeral service, which was presided over by Archbishop Jose H. Gomez,  a funeral procession carried Solano’s body to Calvary Cemetery in East L.A, where he was laid to rest in a private ceremony.
