Oscar Rosales arrested: Suspect who 'killed' Corporal Charles Galloway in Texas captured in Mexico after fleeing

A MAN who is suspected of killing a police officer in Texas has been arrested in Mexico after he fled from police.

Oscar Rosales, 51, is suspected of shooting and killing Corporal Charles Galloway, 47, during an early Sunday morning traffic stop before getting back in his vehicle and driving off.


The US Marshals Service and the Gulf Coast Violent Offenders Task Force worked with Mexican authorities to catch Rosales in Ciudad Acuña, Mexico, across the border from Del Rio, Texas.

Authorities allege Rosales got out of his vehicle, fired multiple shots at Galloway with some type of assault rifle and then got back in his car and drove away.

“We have video evidence of him shooting our constable,” Finner said during a news conference.

Harris County Precinct 5 Constable Ted Heap said Galloway had no time to respond or defend himself.

He declined to provide more information about the video evidence, citing the ongoing investigation.

Prosecutors filed a charge of capital murder against Rosales and authorities were offering a reward of $60,000 for information leading to his arrest.

Authorities said that Rosales’ common law wife, Reina Marquez, 40, and his brother, Henri Marquez, 42, have each been charged with tampering with evidence in connection with the case.

Both are accused of tampering with Rosales’ car in an attempt to cover up his involvement in Galloway’s shooting death, according to Finner and court records.

Galloway had been with the constable’s office for about 12 and a half years, Heap said.

The deputy mentored and trained numerous younger officers, who Heap said were “broken up” over the death.

“He was the one who was sitting in the front seat with them. He was the one that was teaching them what to do and how to get home safely to their families. And here we are this evening with the roles reversed,” Heap said.

Galloway is survived by a daughter and a sister, Heap said.
