20-year-old Hugo Baez will face a judge on Friday morning.  

Police say Baez shot 22-year-old Willie Solomon to death at the Choices Nightclub, in Altoona.

The incident happened around 11:30 pm on October 31, 2013.

Investigators say surveillance video from inside the nightclub shows Solomon grabbing Baez.

Baez's attorney claims he fired the weapon in self defense.

Baez remains in the Blair County prison, without bail.

His preliminary hearing is set for 10am Friday morning.
