Dealership owner: 2 killed may have been bounty hunters

The owner of a Texas car 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.

Police say gunfire was reported just after 7 p.m. Tuesday at a Nissan dealership in Greenville, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) northeast of Dallas. Arriving officers found the three men dead.

Dealership owner Rick Ford says the first two men to arrive waited several hours for the third man. Ford says gunfight erupted when the first two men tried to apprehend the third man, as horrified employees and customers sought cover.

Police referred questions about the case to a city spokeswoman, who didn't immediately return a message Wednesday.

Nobody else was hurt in the shootings. No identities have been released.
