ICE deports man arrested in Round Rock for killing in Mexico


A man arrested in Round Rock last year in connection with a killing in Mexico was deported by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers on Wednesday, according to a statement from the agency.

Gregorio Galvan-Gutierrez, 60, was arrested by a fugitive task force on July 13 in Round Rock and taken to a detention center in South Texas, officials said.

Authorities in Mexico informed ICE that Galvan-Gutierrez was wanted for the shooting death of a man who was found on the side of a dirt road in San Francisco, a small community on the Pacific coast.

Mexican law enforcement found the man’s body on March 25, 2003 and a prosecutor later determined he had died from gunshot wounds, ICE said.

The Mexican government issued an arrest warrant for Galvan-Gutierrez for aggravated murder in connection to the crime.

On Wednesday, he was taken by ICE officers to the Texas-Mexico border and handed over to Mexican authorities, officials said.
