Oscar Rosales, 51, was arrested across the border from Del Rio with the help of joint operations marshals, the Gulf Coast Violent Offenders Task Force and the Mexican authorities.
Rosales is charged with capital homicide after allegedly killing Galloway during a traffic stop.
Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said witnesses saw Rosales fire several shots at the deputy.
“This is pointless. It makes no sense at all,” Finner said after the incident, adding that Galloway did not have time to respond or defend himself.

Galloway was at the constable’s office for about 12 and a half years. He mentored and trained several younger officers who had “broken up” over his death.
“It was him sitting in the front seat with them. He was the one who taught them what to do and how to get safely home to their families. And here we are tonight with the roles changed. ”
Galloway leaves behind a daughter and a sister.
Authorities are beginning the process of returning Rosales to Harris County.
