(Scroll down for video) Two bounty hunters and a fugitive were killed in a deadly shootout.

A witness took video at a car dealership in Greenville, Texas, as the deadly shooting unfolded in front of other customers.

According to police, bounty hunters Fidel Garcia Jr. and Gabriel Bernal were looking for Ramon Hutchinson, after he failed to show up in court on felony charges of disarming a police officer, assault of an officer and felony first-degree narcotics possession.

The dealership owner told police that Garcia and Bernal told him that they were federal agents and were waiting on Hutchinson.

The owner believed them as he said the pair had guns and handcuffs. However, that was not the case. The two men worked for FNG Security and Investigations in Corpus Christi.

The men tracked Hutchinson to the dealership after they found a vehicle, which they believed belonged to him. They placed a tracker on the car before learning that he was at the dealership to trade it for another.

As Hutchinson was sitting in the office to discuss the trade in, the bounty hunters came inside with their guns drawn and they tried to place Hutchinson in handcuffs.

Hutchinson pulled out a gun of his own and a deadly shootout broke out. 20 shots were fired in about six seconds, killing all three men and shattering glass windows at the car dealership.
