Bounty Hunters, Fugitive Dead After Massive Shootout At Texas Car Dealership

A video of the shooting was released to reporters by the city of Greenville, Texas.

New video shows a deadly shootout involving two bounty hunters inside a Texas auto dealership.

A private investigator says a shooting at a Texas vehicle dealership that left three men dead involved two investigators who had confronted a fugitive wanted in Minnesota on several felony charges.

Hutchinson had an outstanding warrant for failure to appear on a first-degree drug charge in Minneapolis. When it was over, Fidel Garcia Jr., 54, and Gabriel Bernal, 33, were dead.

Greenville police also released 911 calls placed during the shooting, including a woman who said she was hiding in the bathroom while asking police to "please, hurry".

The bounty hunters had been staking out their prey for several hours at the Nissan dealership just off Interstate 30 in Greenville. The men fought as Hutchinson retrieved his weapon and began firing.

Police say at least 20 shots were fired inside this auto dealership outside of Dallas, with employees and customers, including their children, running for cover. No employees or customers were hurt during the gunfire exchange, police said.

Bernal and Garcia had traveled to Greenville from Corpus Christi to arrest Hutchinson. "Unfortunately Mr. Hutchinson was more prepared for a gunfight".

"Today, our dealership was the scene of a tragic and unfortunate confrontation", said Rick Ford, who is president and CEO of RFJ Auto Partners. No one else was injured, Associated Press reported.

The owner of the vehicle dealership told the Associated Press that the two bounty hunters identified themselves as federal agents to the general manager and a receptionist here. Ford said the first two men initially represented themselves as federal agents but may have been bounty hunters.

It's not clear if the investigators notified police before approaching Hutchinson. It's not known if he was wearing the devices Tuesday.

A check of state licensing for private investigators maintained by The Texas Department of Public Safety indicates Garcia and Bernal were listed as "commissioned security officers".
