Three dead in Greenville dealership shooting

The owner of a Texas auto dealership where a shootout left three men dead says two of the men initially represented themselves as federal agents but may have been bounty hunters.

An investigation is underway after a shooting killed three people at a Nissan dealership Tuesday. Officers were called to the dealership to investigate a report of multiple gunshots being fired about 7:20 p.m. and discovered three men who had been fatally wounded, the WFAA story said.

The dealership owner, Rick Ford, told the Associated Press that two of the men waited several hours for the third man to arrive. They approached the man and pulled out handcuffs to make an arrest. No law enforcement officers were involved. At this time, the number of bullets discharged is unknown, though the front glass in the showroom was shattered and some vehicles sustained damage.

The names of the deceased have not been released. "TALI is an association of licensed investigators in the state of Texas", TALI President Brad Smith said in a statement. Peters said one of Garcia's employees was also with him at the time of the shooting.
