Four Charged In Murder Of Katy Man.

On Monday, May 17, 2021, at approximately 11:35 PM, Harris County Sheriff’s Deputies and Cy-Fair EMS responded to a shooting in the 17100 BLK of Hilton Hollow DR, in the Westminster Village Subdivision. When deputies arrived on the scene, they located a dark gray Dodge Challenger abandoned in the front yard of a residence. The vehicle had multiple bullet strikes to the passenger side, left the roadway and struck a tree. The driver, later identified as Eddie Clark (29 YOA), managed to exit the vehicle and flee a short distance on foot before he collapsed. Cy-Fair EMS responded to the scene and determined Clark had been shot. Clark was transported by Life Flight to Hermann Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.


Deputies located two persons at the scene, Florinda Argueta (39 YOA) and her son, Joe Argueta (19 YOA). Florinda Argueta stated she had filed several reports with the Sheriff’s Office regarding person(s) damaging their home and vehicles. She stated they suspected a teenage Hispanic male friend of her son’s ex-girlfriend was responsible for the damage. One of the reports listed a black Dodge Charger as a possible suspect vehicle. At approximately 11:30 PM, Joe Argueta spotted what he believed to be the suspect vehicle driving in the neighborhood. Members of the Argueta family attempted to block a dark gray Dodge Challenger on the roadway, with their own vehicles.  Two male family members approached the Challenger on foot. One male was armed with a baseball bat and the other male with a pistol. When the Challenger attempted to flee, the male with the pistol fired multiple gunshots at the passenger side of the Challenger. At the scene, Joe Argueta, stated he was the person armed with the pistol and fired the gunshots at the vehicle until it crashed.


Joe Argueta was transported to the Sheriff’s Office Homicide Unit, where he provided investigators with a statement. Florinda Argueta was interviewed at the scene and released. Two other members of the Argueta family fled the scene, before deputies arrived. They were identified as the father, Luis Argueta,45, and the uncle, Margarito Alcantar, 29. After obtaining witness statements and reviewing surveillance video captured in the area of the shooting the following persons were charged with Murder:


Joe Argueta, W/M 19 YOA/ Murder / 180th DC / Bond TBD (IN CUSTODY)

The victim, Eddie Clark, lived in the Westminster Village Subdivision, and was on his way home when he was confronted by the Arguetas. Eddie Clark was driving a dark gray Dodge Challenger, not a black Dodge Charger. Eddie Clark was not known by the Arguetas and investigators did not receive any information that Eddie Clark was involved in the ongoing dispute.
