(CNN) — The man suspected of killing a Harris County, Texas, law enforcement deputy during a traffic stop over the weekend was arrested in Mexico on Wednesday morning, Houston Police said.

Oscar Rosales, 51, was wanted in the Sunday murder of Harris County Constable Precinct 5 Corporal Charles Galloway, police said.

Rosales was taken into custody by Mexican authorities in Ciudad Acuña, a Mexican city across the border from Del Rio, Texas, according to Val Verde County Sheriff Joe Frank Martinez.

At about 11:30 a.m. CT, Mexican law enforcement transferred Rosales to US authorities through the Del Rio Port of Entry, Martinez said. The US law enforcement agencies that assisted with the transfer included members of the Val Verde County Sheriff’s Office, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and the US Marshals Service, Martinez said.

Rosales was in the custody of the sheriff’s office in Val Verde County, located west of San Antonio along the US-Mexico border, Martinez said. Law enforcement from Houston were on their way to Val Verde County to take Rosales into their custody, he added.

Capital murder charges were filed against Rosales earlier this week when HPD announced detectives had recovered video evidence of Rosales shooting and killing the corporal during a traffic stop. It was not immediately clear if he has an attorney.

Galloway, 47, made the traffic stop on a newer-model, white Toyota Avalon just after midnight on Sunday when the shooting occurred, Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said.

Witnesses said the suspect got out of his vehicle, fired at the corporal multiple times, and then drove off, he said. A witness told police an “assault-type weapon” was used, the police chief said.

“This is senseless. It makes no sense whatsoever,” Finner said.

Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said earlier that once apprehended her office would be asking the judge to hold Rosales without bail.

Two of Rosales’ family members are in custody and have been charged with tampering with evidence, Ogg added. That evidence was the Toyota Avalon that was recovered by authorities, Finner said.

Galloway was a 12-year veteran and a field training officer, Harris County Precinct 5 Constable Ted Heap said Sunday.
