    A man wanted by authorities in Dallas in connection with a murder in June was captured in Mexico and handed over to U.S. law enforcement at the border this past week, officials say.

    Mexican authorities on Thursday escorted Dennis Jimenez-Hernandez, 22, to Customs and Border Protection officers waiting at the halfway point on the Juarez-Lincoln International Bridge in Laredo, according to a CBP news release. He had been detained after being flagged in a crime database shared between federal and local law enforcement agencies, officials said.

    Border agents confirmed Jimenez-Hernandez had outstanding warrants for homicide, assault and driving under the influence issued by the Dallas County Sheriff's Office and Dallas Police Department, which recently named him as a suspect in a June 20 homicide.

    Jimenez-Hernandez, a citizen of El Salvador, was held at the Webb County Jail in Laredo.
