CHULA VISTA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities in Mexico have identified the man suspected of fatally shooting a U.S. Border Patrol agent.

Federal police said Sunday the main suspect in the killing is 36-year-old Ernesto Parra Valenzuela.

Parra Valenzuela was among four men detained in Mexico on Friday. He was reportedly carrying a Border Patrol-issued pistol at the time of his arrest.

Records show Parra Valenzuela has not yet retained an attorney.

Authorities wouldn’t say what role, if any, the other three men may have played in the death of Agent Robert Rosas, who was killed Thursday near the Mexican border in southeastern San Diego County.
