A father and one of his sons are to appear before a federal magistrate after they were charged with assault in the shooting of a federal immigration agent parked outside their South Texas home.

Pedro Alvarado and his 18-year-old son, Arnoldo Alvarado, are charged with assault. They'll appear before U.S. Magistrate Peter Ormsby in McAllen on Tuesday. Also in custody as a suspect is the father's 16-year-old son, who's charged as a juvenile in a state district court with attempted capital murder.

A criminal complaint alleges the 16-year-old fired about six shots from a .22-caliber rifle and that Arnoldo Alvarado fired "numerous" shots from a 9mm handgun as they rode in a vehicle their father drove July 3.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials say agent Kelton Harrison's condition is improving.
