Investigators earlier this week identified Rosales as the gunman and authorities in Texas charged him with capital murder of a police officer after he was apprehended in Mexico on Wednesday and returned to Texas.

Rosales, 51, made a second court appearance Friday morning and was much quieter than during his first appearance in probable-cause court Wednesday night, FOX 26 reported. He was being held without bond, the report said.
