ESPANOLA, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico State police say four people have been arrested in connection with a shooting near Espanola that killed a man and wounded three others.

They say 18-year-old Cameron Martinez was fatally shot Thursday night on Highway 68 near the Ohkay Owingeh Casino.

State Police say another man and two women survived and remain hospitalized in stable condition.

Their names haven’t been released, but authorities say the four victims were mistakenly targeted.

State Police say 22-year-old Mark Anthony Hice of Ojo Caliente, 19-year-old Anton Martinez of Santa Cruz and a 17-year-old boy from Espanola all are jailed on suspicion of first-degree murder and other charges.

They say 21-year-old Brittany Garcia of Ojo Caliente is accused of conspiracy and tampering with evidence.

It’s unclear if any of the suspects have lawyers.
