The dealership CEO confirmed that two men came to the dealership and misrepresented themselves as federal agents. They said they were waiting for someone they were planning to arrest.
They waited more than two hours until their target arrived in the company of a Nissan customer. They approached the man and pulled out handcuffs to make an arrest. That’s when the target pulled out a gun and started to fire.
The gunfight, between all three of them, happened in front of employees and customers, including children, in the showroom. Police arrived to meet three men, all dead inside the showroom.
