Two more suspects have been arrested in Texas on charges of aiding and abetting Oscar Rosales, the main suspect killed last Sunday in a corporal at the Harris County constables’ office, according to police.
Recent arrests bring the total number of suspects in the case to five.
Cpl. Charles Galloway, 47, a deputy for Harris County Precinct 5 Constable, was shot and killed while holding a traffic stop in Houston around 6 p.m. 12:30, authorities have said.
Galloway, with the force since 2009, was hit several times and died on the spot, FOX 26 in Houston reported.

Investigators earlier this week identified Rosales as an armed man, and Texas authorities charged him with killing a police officer after he was arrested in Mexico on Wednesday and returned to Texas.
Rosales, 51, appeared once again in court Friday morning and was much quieter than during his first appearance in court Wednesday night, FOX 26 reported. He was detained without restraint, the report said.
“Right here, all the officers and the security guard … if they want to try to kill [sic] me right here, they can do it, no matter what, I do not care, “Rosales shouted in an outburst in the courtroom Wednesday night, according to FOX 26.” Everyone in this room is waiting for the chance to hurt me. “
Rosales’ next court hearing was scheduled for 6 p.m. 11.30 on 23 February, FOX 26 reported.
Authorities, according to Houston police, have also arrested four other suspects in connection with the case.
Two suspects – identified as Reina Marquez, 40, and Henri Marquez, 42 – were charged earlier this week with manipulating evidence.
Two more suspects – identified as Jose SG Cruz, 68, and Jose RH Cruz, 43 – were charged Friday with preventing arrest, according to a Houston police statement.
