HOUSTON (AP) — Four members of a Texas family have been charged with murder after being accused of ambushing a neighbor in what authorities say is a case of mistaken identity.

Eddie Clark was shot late Monday as he drove to his Houston-area home in northwest Harris County.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office alleges Joe Argueta and his family thought Clark was someone who had been damaging their home and vehicles in an ongoing dispute.

The sheriff’s office alleges Argueta fired at Clark’s vehicle after he tried to drive away.

Argueta, his mother, father and uncle are charged with murder.
