When officers arrived, they found McBride in the driver’s seat and Rosales in the passenger’s seat.

McBride was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the abdomen, police said. He later died.


Rosales told police she and her husband stopped to talk to a man. The unknown man then shot at her husband from the passenger side door and tossed the gun in the truck before running away, according to police.

Investigators determined there were multiple inconsistencies in Rosales’ story and she was the only person present when McBride was shot. Police have not released a motive in the case.

Rosales was charged with murder and is being held in jail on $500,000 bond.

According to the U.S. Sun, Rosales was on the MTV show, "Big Tips Texas."
