GREENVILLE, Texas (AP) - Two bounty hunters killed in a point-blank shootout with a Minnesota fugitive at a Texas car dealership were offered $3,000 to apprehend the felon.

A police report obtained by The Dallas Morning News shows private investigators Fidel Garcia Jr. and Gabriel Bernal would have collected the payout if they had succeeded in taking 49-year-old Ramon Michael Hutchinson into custody.

Instead, the three men exchanged about 20 shots May 30 inside a glass office at the Nissan showroom, leaving the two private investigators and their target dead.

A Minnesota bail-bond company had hired Garcia and Bernal to find Hutchinson, of St. Paul. They traced him to the dealership in Greenville, about 50 miles northeast of Dallas, after he skipped a court hearing in Minnesota on felony charges.
