Mexican authorities say they have nabbed a suspect in the slaying of ICE agent Jaime Zapata in Mexico last week, the Associated Press reported. Another agent was wounded after being shot twice in the leg.

The Mexican Defense Department issued a brief statement Wednesday but provided no details, AP reported. The two men were ambushed while driving back to Mexico City.

AP, citing a U.S. law enforcement official familiar with the investigation, reported that authorities have identified a “handful” of people in connection with the shooting in northern Mexico. Zapata and the wounded agent Victor Avila were assigned to the ICE attache in Mexico City.

The suspects appear to have ties to the drug cartels, AP reported.
