The war on drugs has claimed three more lives.
On Monday, a shootout between two bounty hunters and the fugitive they were tracking left all three men dead.
The three men were identified on Wednesday as Gabriel Bernal, 33, Fidel Garcia, 54, and Raymond Hutchinson, 49, of St. Paul, Minnesota.
Bernal and Garcia worked with F.N.G. Security and Investigations of Corpus Christi and went to a Nissan dealership in Greenville, Texas, to apprehend Hutchinson.
Hutchinson had an outstanding warrant for failure to appear on a first degree drug charge from the Hennepin County Sherriff’s Office in Minneapolis.
Hutchinson was in an office in the dealership with another person when he was approached by Bernal and Garcia, reports KLTV.
Bernal and Garcia drew weapons and began giving Hutchinson commands. Officials say Hutchinson attempted to pull a pistol from his waistband, but dropped it on a desk. A scuffle followed, and he was able to grab his gun and reportedly began firing. Bernal and Garcia fired back.
About 20 shots were fired within approximately 6 seconds. The entire confrontation didn’t last long, and was caught on video.
All three men suffered multiple gunshot wounds and were pronounced dead at the scene.
