Cell phone video released Wednesday shows a deadly shooting unfold between two bounty hunters and a fugitive who opened fire inside a showroom at a Nissan dealership Tuesday.
A wanted fugitive from Minnesota is dead after a shootout with bounty hunters at a auto dealership in Texas, and the end of the confrontation was caught on camera.
Texas requires all bounty hunters to identify themselves in a Department of Public Safety uniform, according to Jon Alfaro, the co-owner of Texas Bounty Hunters-something the two officials in question, Fidel Garcia, Jr. and Gabriel Bernal, did not appear to do.
Peters says Hutchinson had been sought since March when he failed to appear for court in Hennepin County.
The video released by Greenville police shows the bounty hunters approach 49-year-old Ramon Hutchinson in a glass office. Hutchinson tried to pull a gun from his waistband and all three went for it.
Three people have been killed during a shooting at a Nissan dealership in Texas.

Emely Paula Medina originally posted a video of her serving Lorde , saying she was " shook " to be in her presence. On May 29, the 20-year-old singer stopped in a Liquiteria and chatted with the cashier working.
KSTP has not been able to confirm that it was the U.S. Marshal's Office that talked with the woman, but a review of her text messages with the person she said was a federal agent, did show Hutchinson's photo and a description of his auto. He dropped the firearm on a desk but was able to grab it again and began firing at Bernal and Garcia.
Tuesday's shooting was the second time in about a month in the US when violence erupted as private groups were attempting to apprehend fugitives.
In an interview with FOX 4, Rick Ford, the owner of the dealership, stated the two bounty hunters had identified themselves as federal employees but had not been given permission to enter the showroom.
Hutchinson and the two investigators died at the scene.
"Enjoyed his life in Corpus Christi, lived a modest and humble life", Peters said about Garcia. His company hunts as many as 50 fugitives at a time and works with dozens of bounty hunters. She says he was a professional, engaged to be married and doubts that he would have misrepresented himself.
Similarly, Bernal and Garcia didn't follow standard bounty hunter protocol, says Michael Phariss, the division chief of Texas Response Group, a private security and investigations firm in Carrollton.
