Investigator: Deadly shooting began when fugitive confronted

02 June 2017, 01:47 | Cynthia Sparks

Ramon Michael Hutchinson, shown in the photo provided by the sheriff's office in Hennepin County, Minn., and two bounty hunters were killed during a hail of gunfire at a Texas vehicle dealership Tuesday night.

When it was over, Fidel Garcia Jr., 54, and Gabriel Bernal, 33, were dead.

Court records show a warrant was issued for 49-year-old Ramon Hutchinson, who went by the alias Raymond, in Hennepin County in March after he failed to show up for court.

They gave Hutchinson orders, but Hutchinson pulled his own gun and started shooting.

The Star-Telegram reports Hutchinson was in an office with another person when Bernal and Garcia confronted him with their guns drawn. The other two fired as well and Lucas said about 20 shots were fired in the span of six seconds.

After an hours-long wait, the two bounty hunters approached.


Bounty hunters working for bail-bondsmen have broad powers of arrest and search under the law, but they are not government agents.

"We referred the case to them once we found probable cause that Mr. Hutchinson could be in Texas", Peters said. When the dust cleared, the three men were dead. No employees or customers were hurt during the gunfire exchange, police said. The dealership owner, Rick Ford, said that two men came to the dealership and misrepresented themselves as federal agents. A window was shattered and there was some property damage, but no one outside of the three mysterious men was injured.

"There are three families mourning the loss of life today", said Stew Peters, a bail investigator with the private Minnesota-based company U.S. Fugitive Recovery and Extradition.

Peters then handed the investigation to Garcia. Security and Investigations in Corpus Christi.

The main goal, he says, is to limit risk - not just for the bounty hunters but also for the fugitives and the public.
