UPDATE: Investigators said there might have been an ongoing altercation between the suspects and the victims before the shooting.

“We believe the motive for this homicide may have been a continuing altercation in feud between multiple parties that were involved. I also want to stress that none of the victims lived at the residence off of Martinez Street,” Hidalgo County Sheriff Eddie Guerra said.

All four men are being held at the Hidalgo County Jail. Each of them faces a $500,000 bond.
