Four family members have been charged with murder in what deputies say is a case of mistaken identity after a man was trapped, pursued, and shot to death.
Eddie Clark III, 29, was murdered Monday night at the Westminster Landing community in northwest Harris County, right around the corner corner from his house.
Joe Argueta, 19, is accused with murder, along with his mother and father, 39-year-old Florinda Argueta and 45-year-old Luis Argueta, and his uncle, 29-year-old Margarito Alcantar.
Both the mother and her kid have been apprehended. Deputies suspect the father and uncle are on the run. Arrest warrants have been issued for each of them.
“This is an example of taking the law into your own hands,” a hearing officer admonished Joe Argueta in court Wednesday morning. “Not going through the proper authorities to resolve any other harm or destruction that was being done to your own residence or your own home. It still doesn’t justify taking the law into your own hands and mistaking the person.”
