Two Texas Bounty Hunters Die In Shootout With Suspect Caught On Camera

Two bounty hunters lay in wait at a Greenville, Texas car dealership for hours, before drawing weapons to apprehend their quarry, which led to a shootout that left both men, and their suspect dead from gunshot wounds.

The pair of bounty hunters from Corpus Cristi had told the business owner that they were federal agents, before Fidel Garcia Jr. and his partner Gabriel Bernal [__confronted the suspect__](http://www.wfaa.com/news/local/shooting-at-nissan-dealership-leaves-3-men-dead-in-greenville/444311588) in plain view of the Nissan dealership’s employees and customers.

A witness caught the flurry of shots on camera from only thirty feet away.

In six seconds, 20 shots were fired.

All three men died.

Amazingly, no innocent bystanders were hurt.

St. Paul Police had warned the bounty hunters that the suspect was extremely dangerous, and Hutchinson was wanted for multiple felonies.

Hutchinson was wanted for felony methamphetamine and DWI charges.

The two deceased bounty hunters were not wearing insignia, which is a felony offense when acting on behalf of the surety or bail bondsman who bailed the criminal suspect out of jail.

His partner Bernal was also [__licensed in Texas__](https://tops.portal.texas.gov/psp-self-service/search/result/78454?type=person) as a private security guard with Level II training.

Unfortunately, Garcia’s ruse about being federal agents exposed a private business to harm, nearly resulted in innocent deaths and in the end cost he and his partner their lives.

It’s a reminder that private business owners should always ask for identifying information from anyone claiming to be law enforcement.

A simple request for the bounty hunters’ badge and serial numbers would’ve been sufficient for this car dealership to have avoided a tragic situation on their property.

If it wasn’t for one intrepid citizen journalist using his phone to record the police – or people he thought were cops – we’d likely have no idea how the three men wound up dead.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
