SAN ANTONIO ­ Authorities say they have ruled out any connections to Mexican drug traffickers in the ambush-style slaying of a South Texas sheriff's deputy at a San Antonio intersection.

Bexar (BAYR) County Sheriff Amadeo Ortiz said Monday that the suspect had been drinking the day of the shooting and was on prescription medication for depression. Ortiz said Mark Anthony Gonzales had previously applied to be a law officer.

Investigators had said shortly after the May 28 slaying that they did not believe sheriff's Sgt. Kenneth Vann was specifically targeted, but that the killer may have been looking for a law enforcement officer to kill.

Gonzales was arrested on a capital murder warrant at his San Antonio-area home Sunday, eight days after the fatal shooting.
