MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - Four members of the same family are now charged in connection with the murder of one of their own.

Melrose High School student Cardarius Webb, 15, was shot and killed in April. His brother was charged with the murder days later. Now, his mother and two other siblings are charged with harassing and threatening the woman they thought committed the crime.

Hundreds of people crowded the corner of Spottswood Avenue and Pendelton Street to watch the investigation unfold after the shooting.

A woman who lives in the house in front of where Webb died was originally questioned. She was then reportedly harassed and assaulted by his family who blamed her for the death.

The teen's mother, Bernestine Webb, is accused of telling the woman while striking a metal pipe on the ground, "You took my son's life, I'm going to take yours."

Police say the victim's sister, Angel Scott, and brother, Timothy Crawford, threatened the woman as well, even displaying a handgun.

According to officers, all of these threats were made the day before Webb's brother, Dewayne McKissack, was charged with the murder.

Police say he confessed to the crime.
