Three Dead In Greenville Shooting

Shooting leaves 3 men dead at Greenville Nissan dealership

Greenville officials have released video and new details after three men were shot to death at an East Texas vehicle dealership.

The owner of the dealership claims Bernal and Garcia initially represented themselves as federal agents, and waited several hours for Hutchinson to arrive.

He identified Fidel Garcia one of the private investigators who was killed. They approached the man and pulled out handcuffs to make an arrest. An employee was also with two customers in the office right next to them, but none of them were hurt. That is when the target pulled out a gun and started to fire. Officers from both the Greenville Police Department and the Hunt County Sheriff's Office responded to the scene. 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 dealership will be closed Wednesday at least, perhaps even longer. Peters said he has been working with Garcia for more than a decade and contacts Garcia whenever they are looking for a fugitive in Texas. "TALI is an association of licensed investigators in the state of Texas", TALI President Brad Smith said in a statement.

Peters said he didn't know Bernal, 33, but had been friends with Garcia for a decade and said he would not misrepresent himself. Stay with KRIS-TV on-air and online at for updates as we receive them.
