Authorities have located the personal car of a rookie Los Angeles police officer wanted for questioning in a deadly shooting, but they haven't found him yet.

Police in Pomona, a suburb east of Los Angeles, said Sunday the Volkswagen Jetta belonging to Officer Henry Solis was discovered a short distance from where a young man was gunned down two days earlier.

Solis was off-duty during the early Friday shooting that killed 23-year-old Salome Rodriguez, and he failed to report to work the next day. Police say they have reason to believe he knows investigators want to talk to him.

Pomona police have issued a poster calling the 27-year-old Solis a "person of interest" in the shooting that occurred in a downtown bar district after two men got into a fight.
